Yoga therapy is based on the teachings, research, and practice of yoga, Buddhism, neuroscience, psychology, and Ayurveda. Yoga therapy is not a yoga class, it's therapy; most clients have never practiced yoga and don't intend to. It's called yoga therapy because it is based on the principle that the best way to the mind is through the body.
Through a carefully led embodied practice a client will come to understand behavior, thought patterns, and life experience in a new way. Yoga therapy can transform stress, anxiety, fear, and depression, heal, motivate and empower, and help one embrace and manifest life changes.
Yoga therapy is offered to individuals, couples, and groups.
Mindful connection with the outdoors is fundamental for living a balanced, inspired, and fulfilled life. It's coming home to our natural state of being - empowered, expansive, and at ease. Awaken your vital essence in the natural spaces you were born to roam.
Practices help you release stress, breathe fresh air, get moving, calm the mind, soothe the spirit, and regain your sense of curiosity and adventure.
We offer stand-alone mindful outdoor experiences, practices integrated with yoga, more challenging physical activities, and retreats.
I have had the wonderful pleasure of working with Christine and from the first session, I said you are better than any doctor!!! I say that because connecting to myself has allowed me to use tools and self guidance to react to situations, grow and learn from them vs continuing to stress out. I feel so much more in tune to my needs, who I truly am. I am able to say no to things that don't serve me, I am able to have patience with those around me, I am able to process a situation and come up with solutions. I feel like a completely different person! Christine helps me move forward and that is gold! :)
Our couples yoga therapy session was surprisingly intimate and nourishing. Christine asked gentle, thoughtful questions that helped me understand and connect more deeply with my partner.
I'd never heard of yoga therapy before I met Christine, and I really had no idea what to expect. I've never been one for traditional talk therapy as I don't like rehashing past trauma or wallowing in misery. My session with Christine blew me away. Incorporating movement unleashed so much emotion, clarity, and insight – it was transformative and supremely life-affirming. Christine is also extremely gentle, kind, and immediately puts you at ease. I highly recommend her services!!
