Therapeutic Yoga for Pain & Restoration
Somatics – Therapeutic Yoga
Group Classes and Private and Semi-Private Training
We offer a variety of Soma Yoga and Therapeutic Yoga classes specifically designed to restore and rehabilitate your body. Our instructors are highly experienced and certified, and will tailor instruction to your personal needs.
Somatics for Strength & Balance
Combines yoga postures and sequences to build a stronger, more flexible you! Achieve better balance and awareness while flowing through postures, safely opening up the body in a sort of yoga “dance.” We learn about and practice Ujjayi (victorious breath), Vinyasa (movement follows the breath), and Drishti (gazing points) to bring about a sense of harmony in the body, mind, and soul. Come prepared to breathe, move, and feel better!
Somatics Yoga for Pain
Just like any other skill, creating new habits require practice. The slow, gentle, and safe movement patterns taught in this class will reprogram your brain to muscle connection, create efficient movement and improve your self-awareness. These movements are basic to all human movement – running, walking, reaching, bending. When you remember how to move without overly contracted muscles, your movement is more efficient, effortless and your pain disappears!
Somatics Restorative Yoga
We use gentle stretches, supportive props and 4 levels of relaxation that result in deeper releases of embedded stress, calming rejuvenation to the nervous system and repair from surface to the cellular levels of the body. Better than any night’s sleep! This helps sustain a better state of equilibrium for the body, emotions and mind. No yoga experience needed. Please bring 2 blankets.
