"Fuse the powers of the sacred heart with the energies of the body, and you can transform everything."
- Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Yoga and Yoga Therapy
Yoga is a complete spiritual path to healing and self-revelation and gives us a framework to live life in an honest, pure and virtuous way. Because the practice of Yoga deeply harmonizes the energies of the body, science has confirmed it as an effective therapy to treat and also prevent nearly all non-infectious diseases. I work with people on both paths, for the purpose of spiritual development as well as treatment for specific health conditions.

My Approach to Hatha Yoga
Yoga is far more than just a physical practice of Asanas and breathing techniques; it is a way of life. Yoga invites us to live in such a way that we are existing in harmony with ourselves, with others and with nature. It addresses the purification of our entire being, from the body, to mind, to our behaviors and actions to live a life of balance, truth and love.
My Hatha Yoga sessions are a combination of dynamic practice to strengthen, tone and energize the body while also holding postures for longer periods of time to deepen in meditation, go beyond the mind and enter the space of the pure heart.
My practice is very much rooted in the traditional teachings of Hatha Yoga, where asanas are meant to be steady and comfortable with awareness of the activated energy centers in the body and meditating while in the posture. Through being aware of the chakras (psychic energy centers in the body) and their qualities we learn from the asana practice how to integrate loving kindness, trust, determination, confidence, fluidity, compassion, joy and more divine qualities into our daily life. How we are centered and loving in both body and mind on the mat starts to echo beyond our formal practice into a life of freedom and balance.
Yoga has been scientifically proven to be able to heal or drastically improve most chronic, non-infectious diseases without any external medicine. It has been proven effective to treat depression, anxiety, high or low blood pressure, hypertension, diabetes, spondylitis, infertility, sciatica, obesity and much more.
Yoga is incredibly effective as a therapy for disease because it addresses the root causes of imbalance in the body and mind. It therefore has the capacity to heal completely many conditions as opposed to just covering up symptoms. To explore if Yoga Therapy would be right for you reach out to me for a free consultation.
