As a Certified YogaNurse® I offer practical, holistic therapies designed to relieve stress, anxiety, pain, and suffering. Combining the ancient wisdom of yoga with the science of modern nursing, I teach my clients simple, easy ways to feel better, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. YogaNurses® are specialists in stress management and pain relief.
Yoga practice improves the function of the nervous and immune systems, musculo-skeletal systems, increases function of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, decreases chronic pain, anxiety, depression, improves sleep, and so much more.
I have worked with clients who were suffering with a variety of debilitating diseases, such as arthritis, cancer, heart disease, chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. I have witnessed remarkable transformations and relief of symptoms. There is a growing body of research documenting the benefits of yoga as a viable therapy for many illnesses provided by the National Institutes of Health, NIH.
We will work as a team to create a treatment plan to suit your needs and abilities. No matter your medical diagnosis or your physical condition, yoga therapy can help you feel better.
During our initial 90 minute consultation, we will identify your health concerns and explore the best ways to address them. I will listen as I assess your needs. It is my intention to create an individualized therapeutic plan tailored to work for you. You will practice with me and take home a simple, enjoyable action plan. You can expect to see me for three session in order to get your practice established.
Follow up sessions will give you the opportunity to continue to practice, adjust, and expand your plan as needed. As your yoga practice creates improved wellness it may decrease the need for medication and other medical treatments. However, yoga is not a substitute for appropriate medical care. If you are in the care of a medical practitioner, be sure to tell them that you are seeking yoga therapy. Rest assured I am happy to work with your provider and answer any of their questions.
The fee for your initial 90 minute evaluation is $90. Follow up 60 minute sessions are $60 An initial three-session package is available for $175. Ongoing sessions may be scheduled as needed as either 60 minutes or 30 minute sessions for $40.
Programs for Groups
My priority is to create an inspiring and caring program tailored to the needs of your organization.
The Corporate Setting:
Give your employees the gift of time to focus on simple, easy strategies to deal more effectively with stress in the workplace and in their lives. Stress is a serious health risk and a major cause of illness, absenteeism, and decreased productivity in the workplace.
My approach is friendly, open hearted, and interactive. Participants will find themselves having fun and letting go of stress as they learn.
I will come to your worksite or other location to present the following trainings:
Lunch and Learn
One-time or an ongoing series of short focused classes. In just 15-45 minutes, I will teach a series of simple, easy, feel good techniques anyone can do at their desks and at home. Participants will feel better and build camaraderie among co-workers. Focus is on Stress Reduction, Yoga, and Meditation.
Workshops and Break out sessions, 1-3 hours
