EXPERIENCE FREEDOM FROM SUFFERING
"Yoga Therapy is not a single lineage or tradition, but the recognition that all of the different facets of yoga contribute to health and healing at all dimensions of our being." - Joseph Le Page
The root of therapy is actually self-care, and Kathleen is a compassionate ally and guide.
Yoga Therapy combines these powerful tools: Pranayama (breathing techniques), Asana (physical postures), Mantra (self-created sounds) Mudra (symbolic hand gestures or attitudes) and Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation) with various forms of meditation.
Kathleen's training includes Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT) - an experiential approach for safely exploring the various dimensions of being based on a vision of health as unity of body-mind-spirit; and LifeForce Yoga (LFY) - a practice of compassion that creates a container big enough to embrace and accept all the dualities of mood. LFY is an evidence-based approach to treating depression, anxiety and related issues.
Yoga Therapy is not a substitute for medical attention; it is a complementary modality. Instead of offering a diagnosis, treating symptoms and attempting to cure, the goal is to facilitate deeper transformation. This approach is beneficial for people dealing with a range of challenges: from the stress of daily living to trauma to chronic conditions.
