Therapeutic Yoga for Pain & Restoration
Somatics – Therapeutic Yoga
Somatics is a neuromuscular re-education of the body and nervous system that can relieve chronic pain and enhance performance by restoring posture. By retraining movement patterns, Somatics helps alleviate common musculoskeletal conditions and prevent recurring injuries. Breath work and meditation (along with somatic movement) are taught as integral parts of what is offered to every client.

“It Has Completely Changed Me”
“Renewed Mobility Truly a Blessing”
“I must thank you again for helping me on the road to sustained recovery. Somatics has been the only thing in the last 4-5 years that has given my right buttock, hip, and lower back relief. It’s amazing how normal I feel!! Instead of a consistent 7-8, I’m at at 1-2 now. I know I’m on the right track, again thanks to you. The renewed vitality and lower body mobility is truly a blessing.
Keep up the great work. You’re wonderful!!”
MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Renee Lindquist has been a beloved yoga teacher in the St. Croix Valley since 2004. In 2013, after years of teaching yoga, Renee suffered a painful back injury. Her search for pain relief took her through various channels of western medicine but nothing seemed to help. Then she found a Yoga Therapist practicing SomaYoga Therapy. It was there that Renee found not only relief from pain but also more freedom in her body than she had experienced in a long time.
In 2015 Renee received her 500 Hour Teacher Training Certification in SomaYoga Therapy. Since then she has been passionate about helping people in chronic pain. Renee draws from a wide variety of both SomaYoga therapy and clinical nursing experiences. She works on the premise that people need to understand the “why” of something and experience those benefits before they will choose to apply it on their own. Ultimately, Renee helps clients in chronic pain overcome fear with curiosity and education about their bodies. Renee gives them tools to understand and release their pain. As clients begin to replace fear with curiosity, their fear melts away and once again they learn to trust their bodies.
*Currently Renee is enrolled in the Clinical Somtaic Educator program at the Navato Institute for Somatic Research and Training in Navato, CA.
