Do you cope with tension, anxiety, depression? Do you have sleep issues like insomnia, or chronic pain? Have you been diagnosed with complex post traumatic stress?
Has your doctor recommended yoga or meditation?
This is a gentle place to start.
Are you seeking safe complements or alternatives to traditional medicine without medication?
Yoga Therapy and meditation help people remember their natural state: joy, calmness and peace.
Restorative yoga is especially gentle and can be safely practiced.
Finding a qualified teacher is very important. Brooke West is a Certified Yoga Therapist, a Registered Yoga Teacher and a Certified Meditation Teacher.
Ancient Yogic practices are confirmed by modern science as sound and wise. Yoga helps us to cultivate personal awareness, reminds us how to be good people and expands our spiritual potential best through relaxation.
Yoga therapy is relevant to those whom have had a spiritual realization due to serious experiences, including but not limited to severe trauma; near-death or death witnessing; use of plant medicine, psychedelics and entheogens; transformative psychosis states; and other non-ordinary states of consciousness. Realizing our true nature and learning to live life happily is the reason Yoga remains a part of our culture. Yoga brings happiness and peace to the fore by releasing patterns and habits that block our true nature. Our true nature is joy, forgiveness and neutrality. By training our mind to seek inwardly, meditate reinforces right action and cultivates harmony, compassion and patience. Our outer life and our inner life are intimately connected.

A personal note from Brooke:
I help people recognize their innate healing resources. My clients transform their lives by attunement with their own sense of inner wisdom, spirituality and integrity.
I am a trauma survivor who boldly proclaims that Yoga changed my life, my body and my mind, and that Yoga can do the same for you.
Self-regulation is possible and is the best kind of lifestyle management.
Traumatic stress, anxiety, depression and other types of dysregulation can be balanced without medications or in concert with them. With practice, profound inner shifts renew one’s engagement with life, refreshing one’s attitude and energy. Spiritual emergence and emergency can become comfortable, enjoyable, informative and integrative.
Control and power over our lives are reinstated by learning to direct our energy in positive ways. We can shift mood, body temperature, identification with pain and more at will.
The emphasis in Yoga therapy is on wellness; compassionate self-care; healthy, purposeful, conscious living and personal Yoga and meditation practices.
Raja Yoga (meditation), yamaniyamas (ethical principles), Hatha Yoga (exercise), Yoga nidra (relaxed stillness between wakefulness and sleep), and Ayurveda (wholesome living) return practitioners to peace.
