SomaYoga is an approach to yoga that focuses on working with neuromuscular connections (sensing, engaging, and releasing) to release tension where it is commonly held in the body. It creates improved body-mind connectivity, functional awareness and skills to manage common ailments of the back, shoulders, and hips. Classes start with gentle movements while lying on the mat to release tension prior to more traditional yoga postures that are helpful in building strength, creating opportunities for integrated functional movement and balance, and exploring how to sense and move with more ease. This class is appropriate for those who are able to get up and down off the floor and balance without assistance. (75-minute class).

Yin–Yang Yoga blends two styles of yoga into one practice -bringing together the benefits of passively holding postures for 2-5 minutes (using props to support the body and resting on the mat) with the more dynamic active engagement of standing postures. The combination of the two approaches is a great way to bring balance to one’s mind and body by stimulating the meridians (energy channels), improving joint mobility, calming and balancing the nervous system, increasing circulation, improving strength, and decreasing tension. This class will blend the two approaches, offering a variety of options for most bodies to adapt to their level of practice. (75-minute class)

Restorative Yoga is a gentle practice designed to calm and regulate the nervous system.

Gentle Yoga focuses on releasing tension, connecting with the breath, and helping students gain strength and flexibility. The slower, gentle pace allows time to be present in each pose and provides time to make adjustments to invite more calm and ease to the mind and body.

Yoga therapy is the application of specific yogic tools and techniques to address an individual’s physical, psychological, and emotional needs. Yoga therapists have extensive training in adapting the practice of yoga, including postures, breathwork, meditation and mindfulness techniques to meet the needs of their clients. The practice of yoga therapy uses both top-down and bottom-up approaches that help regulate the nervous system. Top-down approaches use cognitive tools such as meditation, self-awareness, and personal inquiry to affect the state of the body, whereas bottom-up regulation uses the body through various movements and breathing techniques to regulate the nervous system, affecting thoughts and emotions. Yoga therapy provides tools to help support self-regulation and resilience.
Yoga therapy works with the natural capacity of the body and mind to support healing including:
- Chronic pain, including low-back pain, arthritis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and other types of pain such as that associated with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome
- Mental health, including concerns like anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, addiction, eating disorders, and others
- Neurological issues and complications of stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease, and traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Support for illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease
- Overall well-being (you don’t need to be sick or in pain for yoga therapy to have value!) and healthy aging
If you’re looking for yoga therapy, Nikki or Kim — both certified yoga therapists — can meet with you to assess your needs from a holistic perspective. What works for you physically, emotionally, mentally? They can design a program to help you facilitate sustainable change that leads to overall well-being.
