yin for you

open. calm. recover.

 
What? 
You and I will design a customized yin practice that you can do at home that serves you in two major ways: 
  1. healing or enhancing range of motion in your targeted areas (areas of tightness, restriction, repetitive motion, or injury)
  2. calming your nervous system and allowing the parasympathetic side to come through– the side that allows your body and mind to open, relax, recover, calm, and heal.   
 
Why?

Electronic devices; news of the day (or of the moment); other stressors/difficult situations unique to the individual; even seemingly “good” things like athletic endeavors can put people’s sympathetic nervous systems in overdrive.  The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for revving the fight or flight response which is important when there is imminent danger.  But left engaged, that type of chronic stress can wreak havoc on bodies and minds. (See list below of various stress-related maladies.)

In fact, today 75% to 90% of all doctors’ visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints.*  Therapists and wellness professionals are reporting increases in stress-related visits, and I too see the search for relief in my yoga teaching.   

Thankfully, I have an antidote– a yin yoga practice custom designed just for you!  Whether you have just a few minutes or longer in your day for your self-care, we’ll design a customized practice that works for you– your body and mind, your timeframe, and your life.  Usually in just one session, we’ll create and customize a yin yoga routine that takes care of you inside and out.  It’s like physical therapy, myofascial release, psychotherapy, meditation, and a deep-tissue massage all rolled into one, and designed specifically for YOU.  Everyone deserves to feel great on the inside and out!

Cost: $125 for the first session and this usually can be done in one session depending on how long a routine you want.  Subsequent sessions, if needed or desired: $100.  Package rates also available.
