About Alan Franzi and Creative Edge Yoga

Our Journey Together

I'm Alan Franzi, a certified yoga therapist and movement specialist. I am here to help you succeed in achieving your health and wellness goals to become healthier and happier.

Experience and Specialties

I have been walking this path for over 30 years, working with numerous students and clients in Connecticut's Guilford, Madison, and New Haven shoreline areas as well as online nationwide.

My approach in classes and therapy integrates alignment-based holistic (non-medical) yoga and posture movement therapies, drawing from extensive training and practice in these modalities.

For more challenging concerns, specialized individual therapy addresses the deeper root causes of issues such as chronic pain, imbalances, movement limitations, and the effects of both short and long-term stress. We collaborate with your medical and other providers to ensure the best possible results.

Navigating Change:

Change can be difficult and scary, especially when dealing with pain, movement issues, or other health problems. It's hard to feel ready to start something new during tough times. But here's the truth: you're not alone. I've spent over thirty years helping people just like you navigate life's ups and downs, find relief and greater well-being, and move more confidently toward a healthier life.

Transformative Possibilities

We start from a place of deep understanding that regardless of what has led you here, there is potential for growth and enhancing your well-being. Whether you're new to Yoga and these holisitic therapies or an experienced practioner, we are committed to assisting you in discovering how yoga and movement therapy can profoundly impact and improve your life.

As you explore the classes and programs here, let your longing for better health, greater well-being, and a more balanced life be your guide. Doubts and questions may arise. Your desire for positive change is a powerful force. Use it to help you stay on track as you consider how our programs might support your journey.
