"Ha" (meaning sun) and "Tha" (meaning moon) seems to encompass it all, a true balance. Combining vinyasa flow, self-awakening yoga, pranayama and some mindful meditation along with yogic philosophies, this practice will leave you feeling whole and complete.
Proper alignment is a large part of keeping our bodies healthy, but what happens when injury or dis-ease takes hold? Yoga Therapy Essentials slow down the movements that are found in a standard yoga class. This allows the mind to trigger the proper muscles and ligaments to take action while holding the structural alignment. Together with specific techniques and props to release overworked muscles, training to increase strength, importance of breath work, Restorative (and the parasympathetic nervous system), and fascia release, relief is on it's way!!
Quieting the mind can be quite the challenge, especially in todays busy world. Taking the time to reconnect is a crucial part of our mental health, even if it's just for 5 "noisy" minutes. Meditation is for everyone, despite what we often tell ourselves. There are many different types of meditation, so finding one that suits your needs at that particular moment just requires patience and an openmind to try different methods. Meditation is a practice, and like anything else we practice it takes time to see results.
Chakras are the energy wheels that are found within our body, and also the world around us. Each has a unique property to it, and each are connected to one another. Through trama and stress these energy wheels can become blocked or altered, which can put our body in a state if dis-ease. Depending on the event will determine which chakra(s) has been effected. There are different methods that can be taken to achieve balance yet again. Specific yoga practices, meditation, sound healing, Reiki, Shamanic journey work, reflexology...just to name a few.
Ayurveda is the sister science to yoga. It brings in the wisdom of the elements and how they react with one another both in the world around us and within. It allows us to be aware of how we can use that knowledge to shape our world. And it's all done on the mat!
Yoga Therapy Essentials is offered in one-on-one sessions for a more focused approach to help retrain your body and to work together to reach your goals. Building strength, increasing flexibility, releasing fascia and overworked muscles, all while learning how to use props and therapeutic techniques. Focus on structural alignment and breath work.
Initial session is longer in duration.
Reflexology is a focused pressure technique usually directed at the feet or hands. It is based on the premise that there are zones and reflexes on different parts of the body which correspond to and are relative to all parts, glands and organs of the entire body. When the reflexes are stimulated, the body's natural electrical energy works along the nervous system to clear any blockages in the corresponding zones. A treatment seems to break up deposits which may interfere with this natural flow of the body's energy.
Foot care is a non invasive treatment to aid in a multitude of conditions.
Includes: toe nail trimming, ingrown nails, fungal toenails, callus reduction, corn removal, and more.
Treatment begins with a foot bath. Options to add on nail polish ($5) or paraffin wax treatment ($10)
Paraffin Wax treatment is done by dipping the hands or feet in a tub of warm melted wax. After, the areas are wrapped and kept warm for about 15 min, letting the wax create smooth soft skin. It has been shown to treat conditions like arthritis and fibromyalgia among others. A wax treatment acts as a type of thermotherapy, or heat therapy, that helps treat these conditions by increasing blood flow, relaxing muscles, and reducing stiffness in joints.
Treatment can be done on its own, or added to a reflexology or foot care appointment at a reduced cost.
