A TYPICAL SESSION

Intake:

During the first visit there is an initial intake to inquire about your health history, current treatments and medications, current physical, mental and emotional condition, and your health and what you hope to achieve with our sessions together.

Yoga Practice: 

I take you through some movements and postures and  observe where there is excessive and/or lack of mobility, what looks obviously asymmetrical, the movement of the spine, and any muscular imbalances and connection between  breath, movement and pain. 

 

Take Home

  • At the end of a session you'll receive a daily practice of the exercises, either written and/or audio file.

  • The home practice usually includes postures, breathing/ relaxation/meditation techniques.

HOW OFTEN?

Follow-Up Sessions: At the end of  the first session we develop a short and long term strategy for improvement. We also establish a time for a second visit to review what is working for you and what needs to be modified. 

 

In most cases recovery takes time and commitment to a regular home practice which changes as you improve. The number of sessions required depends on your condition and goals.

Throughout this process, you are strongly encouraged to check in with me with any questions, concerns or personal feedback.

Please note that I teach  Yoga as a complementary system of health, not an alternative one. It supports and works in conjunction with your normal medical treatments, and I ask that you continue your personal health routine as suggested by your doctor or medical professional.
