Do you Need Yoga Therapy or Yoga Private Instruction?

Looking for therapeutic yoga or Yoga Therapy? Yoga Therapy is different from general yoga in that the practice is adapted to your specific needs and is tailored to create specific effects based on your goals.  You take an active role in your own health, healing or management of a chronic health condition.

A Yoga Therapist may help you with symptoms such as pain, sleep, energy level and stress or issues specific to surgeries, injuries, chronic conditions, grief and life transitions.

A Yoga Therapist’s training includes general yoga teacher training (RYT-200) plus an additional 800 hours of study specific to applying the tools of yoga for structural, physiological or mental/emotional health.
