I create custom offerings on a sliding scale from $60-120 per hour for individuals and organizations. If funds are limited or you'd like ongoing sessions, I'm open to discussing other options.
My approach is integrative and complementary. Please consult a family physician for ongoing issues. The therapeutic components of all offerings relate to my designation as a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) not my status with the Yoga Alliance as a Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500).
Nervous System Support (1:1)
Nervous System Support is focused on mapping your own nervous system and exploring trauma informed tools to build capacity for regulation and resilience. Your body is your GPS - your instrument to navigate the world. When the body doesn’t send us proper signals, we're misguided - it’s like having a GPS that's calibrated to a foreign country. These sessions can help to cultivate interoceptive awareness (the ability to sense what is happening in our bodies). Healthy interoception means that we are subtly aware of our body and letting it guide us - we’re not overwhelmed by it or disconnected.
Mindful Movement (1:1 or Group)
Mindful Movement begins with stillness and sensing the breath. Then we focus on resourcing to build capacity through grounding, centering, orientating, moving and sounding. This is a gentle, accessible approach - everything is an invitation, you can accept or decline. If mobility is limited, the practice can happen in a chair or on a bed. Various forms of meditation are integrated.
Integrative Yoga Therapy (1:1)
Yoga Therapy can be beneficial for people meeting a range of challenges: from the stress of daily living to unresolved trauma. Instead of offering a diagnosis, treating symptoms and attempting to cure, the goal of Yoga Therapy is to facilitate deeper integration. This collaborative process is based on the development of a therapeutic plan that addresses your intentions, requirements, limitations and conditions.
iRest® Yoga Nidra / Co-Meditation Dyads (1:1 or Group)
iRest is a 10-step trauma-sensitive protocol and meditative self-inquiry that promotes resilience. It is a modern adaptation of the ancient Tantric practice of Yoga Nidra. Studies indicate that iRest is effective in addressing post-traumatic stress, chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety and depression. This practice helps us connect with a somatic sense of well-being no matter what is happening.
Rituals for Resilience (Group)
A supportive container for turbulent times. On any given day, the inner and outer storms can hit hard. Remember that you can build the stability and strength required to weather any storm. Sessions are focused on inner cultivation and giving yourself the medicine you need. Through discussion, body-centered practices and reflection, you'll develop a practical yet transformational skill set. This is an opportunity to slow down, tend to your own well, and envision a more just and beautiful world.
Mentorship on Trauma-Informed Practice (1:1)
Available upon request to assist individuals in developing a trauma-informed lens and integrating practices that support us in building capacity for regulation and resilience, and weaving these tools into work and home life. I often collaborate with educators, coaches, facilitators, and wellness practitioners to provide guidance in offering anti-oppressive and trauma-aware care.
