About Syracuse Therapeutic Yoga
It is yoga for people, all people! People living with illness, people who are survivors of illness, people with disabilities, people of all abilities.
At Syracuse Therapeutic Yoga there are small group classes, private classes, workshops and yoga therapy Sessions all designed for you and your body.
Have you always wanted to try a yoga class but the thought of going to a class scares you?
You are not alone. We are here to support you and provide a space for you to be with your body and all its uniqueness. All bodies are all designed differently, so we don't all look the same in postures nor should we. Safety and comfort are key along with balance and some laughter too.
What is Therapeutic Yoga?
What if you could come to see your body as the source of your deepest wisdom, not an enemy or a battleground?
Stop fighting with your body, and struggling to "deal with" your emotions. Start cultivating a more loving relationship with your body, heart and mind.
Come be supported in your struggles, your longings and your victories.
Embrace the wisdom of your body. I practice a body-centered awareness therapy that combines elements of yoga, massage, meditation and psychotherapeutic dialogue to stimulate healing from within.
I support your unfolding with a variety of assisted postures and dialogue techniques, holding you in a safe environment so that you can experience deep self connection.
You are encouraged to tap into the wisdom of your body and discover your own unique capacity for healing.
Explore what’s happening in your body, mind, heart and spirit — and how these are all connected.
What Does Therapeutic Yoga Involve?
Centering - A guided meditation that allows you to relax, ground and become present to your body so that you can listen more deeply to her wisdom.
Yoga-inspired Assisted Postures - You get to relax, while I gently move your body into supported postures to encourage deep stretching, release of muscular and energetic tension and somatically-stored memories.
Mirroring Dialogue - A psychotherapeutic technique based on Carl Rogers’s philosophy that our bodies posses all of the capacity and wisdom we need to heal ourselves. This simple dialogue process accompanies the assisted postures, supporting your ability to explore physical sensations, emotional responses, memories or visions that surface and often go unnoticed in our daily lives.
Integration - A guided meditation that gives you the opportunity to integrate the wisdom and experiences that arose during your session, so that you can take your healing and new found awareness with you into your daily life. This process helps you to feel grounded as you walk out the door and gives you a foundation upon which your session can continue to integrate even more fully throughout the next few days.
