Co-author of EFT for Meditation and a contributing author to The EFT Clinical Handbook. Himalayan tradition initiator.

My approach to Yoga

My approach to working with people is very individualized and holistic. In this regard, I am interested in learning what physical problems people are challenged with, evaluating their present breathing pattern and posture, any present yoga/meditation routine they practice, seeing what their day-to-day routine is like, what their diet is, what medications they are on, how their work environment, family life, and relationships are going, what past traumas/difficulties they faced, and what goals they have.

I believe in a client-oriented approach, letting the client work at their own pace and on the challenges that they want help with. I encourage people to take small steps that they can assimilate, practice according to their comfortable capacity, and focus on positive gains and successes.

The Yoga I teach is
Therapeutic / Individual
Adaptive / Accessible
Alignment Oriented
Classical Hatha
Gentle / Restorative
Meditative / Relaxation
Spiritual or Philosophical
