“yoga is a practice of spiritual wellness” - Tom Alden D.C.
This definition of yoga is at the center of my own personal practice and my 1-on-1 work with folks.
While yoga and bodywork has incredible potential for relief and even improvement, my primary objective is to integrate various modalities to enhance the students awareness and understanding of their own body and overall somatic experience. My intention is both to support students well-being and assist them in being able to care for themselves.
Each session involves a some combination of bodywork, yoga asana, breath work and meditation. the balance of modalities is based a mutual agreement between myself and the students. In other words, some session may consist entirely of manual therapy (bodywork or massage) and some may be more strongly focused on yoga asana or movement exercises. This balance can evolve from session to session.
