Top Rated Local® Yoga Studio
It is more and more apparent that lifestyle is a factor in many issues we have historically attributed to age or genetics. Western medicine as coming to realize that the cumulative effects of stress may be at the root of a multitude of health problems. At the same time, the practice of yoga has grown and moved toward a more central position in both alternative and mainstream therapy choices for those seeking solutions to a wide variety of personal challenges. More and more research is available that indicates yoga techniques are powerful tools to reduce stress, as they offer real physical benefits, including lower blood pressure, improved cardiovascular efficiency, and less gastrointestinal upset. Yoga can help you achieve improvements in your dexterity and balance. This can be a huge benefit for athletes looking to improve their game and everyone seeking to remain active and vital throughout their life.
The Yoga Therapy work I offer in the Guilford, Madison, Branford and New Haven and Woodbridge Connecticut areas involves individual sessions that allow for a more targeted application of the techniques of Yoga and meditation than is possible in group class settings.
Yoga Therapy sessions can be a part of your plan for managing high blood pressure, coping with the effects of cancer treatments, or treating symptoms of HIV, depression or anxiety. In these cases. it does not replace responsible medical and psychiatric treatment but can be a powerful complement to them.
Here we employ Yoga, movement, awareness and other powerful energetic, meditative and relaxation practices that offer non -medical support to help with stress management and mitigating the physical and mental effects of long-term stress. It is a non-medical approach to address the stress and lifestyle components of health difficulties and can work as a powerful complement to conventional medical treatment for a wide variety of health problems
For the past 14 years, I have specialized in a Posture Therapy program which targets the non-medical biomechanical roots of chronic, balance and movement problems.
Repetitive Stress injury, Back pain, Tennis elbow, Bursitis, arthritis, low energy, dizziness and a full array of other chronic conditions can all have musculoskeletal misalignment their root cause. If you are struggling with pain or balance issues or other bodily limitations I invite you to explore this functionally based posture therapy and corrective movement re-patterning work. In this approach, we treat the body as a unit and the self as a whole we can work together to formulate a powerful plan to help resolve challenging balance and movement issues, chronic pain problems.

This therapy program is client-centered and based on the individual posture and movement analysis developed in the therapy sessions. Formulated on these findings, and in collaboration with the client, a therapy plan is developed. This includes specific prescriptions of and instruction in systematic sequences or ”menus” of exercises. The “menu” consists of simple yoga and therapeutic exercises sequenced to restore more proper alignment and balance to the body. These exercises are easy to learn and tailored to the client’s capabilities and goals. As greater balance and alignment are unfolds over time, the body may move toward optimal well-being and a pain-free life via its innate healing capabilities.
This work has applications toward helping enhance physical and athletic performance.
