About Comprehensive Yoga Therapy
Classical yoga philosophy offers a vast and ancient resource of practical techniques for uniting body, mind, and spirit. As a self-study, yoga enhances our strengths while rooting out the unhealthy thought patterns that are at the foundation of stress and suffering. The sessions are offered privately or in small groups, informed by the student’s unique intention and lifestyle and may incorporate: pranayama (breathing), asanas (yoga postures), movement, application of yamas/niyamas (observances and restraints), karma yoga (yoga of service/work life), bhakti yoga (yoga of love/relationships), managing cravings/ food balancing, and energy balancing. This therapeutic approach can be especially beneficial to individuals with the following stress-related conditions: high blood pressure, anxiety and depression, work stress, weight loss/gain, cancer, insomnia, chronic pain, back injuries, asthma and respiratory issues, and grief.
"I am so grateful for your support – I am relieved to find a path that moves away from chronic pain." -KS
