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.

“I look forward to attending classes because Pamela is fun, cheerful, and knowledgeable. She always takes the time to explain each pose. She shares with us how yoga benefits Parkinson’s. And my favorite thing is when we practice laughing!”

— Lynnette, student with Parkinson's Disease

In Spring 2007, at the age of 51, I left a punishing profession as a university professor and adopted a baby boy as a single parent. Today, years later, I thank yoga for helping me to keep my joint pain at bay, maintain strong heart and lung health, manage a stressful life of “parenting-while-aging” and stay physically active with my boisterous son. My deepest desire is to help others experience the physically and spiritually rejuvenating effects of this ancient healing art.
