I have been working with clients of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels for over a decade and have identified three primary approaches to individual sessions. Sometimes a client’s needs and goals fit neatly into one category and other times a combination of the three can best address the whole picture.

Yoga Therapy for Mental Health & Healing the Nervous System. As someone with a personal and family history of trauma and mental health challenges, the life-changing neuropsychological benefits of mind-body practice is what inspired me to become a yoga therapist. Gentle yoga, breath-work, qigong, guided rest, and compassion-focused meditation practice have the power to foster “positive neuroplasticity” — the ability of the brain to reorganize and form new synaptic connections that better regulate and calm the nervous system, that change how we relate to stress, that reduce and down-regulate symptoms of chronic illness, and that transform outmoded psychological patterns in favor of self-compassion, ease, joy, resilience, and equanimity. Mind-body practice teaches us how to access and nourish our inner resources and wisdom, how to return to and stay in touch with our center in the midst of adversity, how to digest and move through grief and trauma, and how to strengthen our overall resiliency towards a better quality of life and long-term healing.

Yoga Therapy for Physical Health / Supporting the Body. Yoga is like an owner’s manual for the body. Through practice, we can learn how to relieve pain and tension, aid recovery from injury or illness,  manage or relieve chronic health issues, improve circulation of blood, lymph and synovial fluid, care for our joints, improve and maintain flexibility and mobility, strengthen coordination and balance, nurture respiratory and digestive health, sharpen memory and mental focus, reduce blood pressure and inflammation, increase strength and bone density, regulate the nervous system, relieve back and neck pain, and learn to make healthy posture our second nature. And that’s the short list! Individual yoga therapy sessions are an ideal way to identify specific and precise practices that best support your personal needs and wellness goals.

Private Instruction for Deepening Your Relationship with Mind-Body Practice.  Individual sessions are an ideal way to study and explore mind-body practice with a highly skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable teacher. You might be totally new to yoga or interested in trying out meditation or tai chi, but you would rather begin your journey in a one-on-one atmosphere. Or, you could be an experienced yogi or meditator who would like to refresh, deepen, and hone your practice. There are few things I love more in this world than working one-on-one to support an individual’s relationship with their personal practice.

Individual yoga therapy sessions can be done in-person or online. In-person sessions are available in either of my office locations in Weaverville and Hendersonville. Online sessions are available through Zoom, an easy-to-use online conference space (similar to TeleHealth) that can be accessed by your phone, tablet or computer. I am also available for in-home private sessions at your place of residence in Western North Carolina (this may include a travel fee if you live more than 45 mins outside of my travel radius).

Initial sessions are 75 minutes in length and include intake, a guided practice, and initial recommendations. Subsequent sessions are 60 minutes (you may request longer sessions according to your needs). Sliding scale is available at any time for those with limited financial resources (just let me know when you schedule your appointment). You can purchase one session or pack of sessions in advance, or you can settle up at the time of your appointment.

All you need is already within you, only you must approach yourself with reverence and love. Self-distrust and self-condemnation are grievous errors. All I plead with you is this: make love of yourself perfect.
