My primary focus and training as a yoga therapist (C-IAYT) ) are on the scientifically proven yoga practices for improving physical, mental, and emotional balance, and overall increasing one’s experience of good health and wellbeing.
From 2014 to 2022 I taught a range of public therapeutic yoga classes with a focus on people with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disabilities. In 2019 I began studying the application of yoga (movement, breath, meditation, philosophy) as a non-pharmaceutical approach to relieving chronic pain, and became “Pain Care Aware” certified in 2022. Pain Care Aware©, a protocol designed my Neil and Lisa Pearson, marries what is currently known about the neuroscience of pain with evidence-based yoga practices that help relieve pain. Learning about and personally experiencing the effectiveness of this protocol has lead me to now focus solely on bringing yoga therapy for pain relief to the wider public.
