YOGA TEACHER AND RELATIONAL SOMATIC HEALING
Yoga means union. It is a body/mind/spirit practice promoting integration, balance and healing. I have been a dedicated student of yoga for over fifteen years and have taught for over ten. My particular interest lies with yoga’s capacity to enhance mental health. A large part of my teaching is done privately and is shared with people dealing with anxiety, depression, stress, addiction, trauma and illness. During sessions, I facilitate a safe environment where we can explore intention setting, breathing practices, movement, mindfulness, meditation, relaxation techniques, yoga philosophy, visualization, psychodrama and sounding. In addition to offering private yoga, I offer relational somatic healing sessions. I believe that we heal in relationship. This approach to healing uses the body to understand patterns that are used to protect us yet may no longer be helpful. Sessions are tailored to meet each client’s specific needs. With time and support clients can expect to cultivate greater awareness and skills to navigate life’s challenges. Yoga, mindfulness and somatic work are excellent compliments to talk therapy. In addition to being a certified yoga teacher, I hold a Master of Education in Adult Education, Community Development and Counselling Psychology. I have extensively studied relational somatic psychotherapy and am currently in the process of becoming a registered psychotherapist. I also practice reiki. Working with clients, I draw on my knowledge of adult education, yoga, mindfulness and somatic inquiry to help people to reconnect to their essence and freedom.
