A Therapeutic Approach to Yoga

Yoga is certainly not a fad.  Believe it or not, we live and breathe it, even if were not acting on it physically.

I am proud to say that I currently continue to study therapeutics with one of the top yoga masters in the world… Aadil Palkhivala from Yoga Centers in Bellevue, WA.   I am honored to be part of a plethora of teachers who are at the forefront of change when it comes to therapeutics.

Heleen Couvrette, a teacher from Montreal who is one of the co-organizers of the Montreal International Symposium on Therapeutic Yoga said that the practice is all about wellness.  “It’s not about being granola and having perfect abs. It’s about so much more than that.”

The medical community is taking note and beginning to believe in the science behind therapeutics and the positive effects it presents – from addiction, pain, disease, depression — you name it.

The science is there to back it up and if I can help make a positive change to as many people as possible, then I’m going to do it with plenty of love and inspiration.  Sure, the majority are doing it to keep fit and a tight body, but it’s truly deeper than fitness.

The body holds in so much anxiety, and people are so stressed and busy these days, we “no longer slow down and breathe deep, and it really is hurting us physically.  Therapeutic yoga is the science of uniting mind, body and spirit.”

“People don’t realize when you breathe it literally affects every cell in your body, you can change the chemical release in your body.”  It’s a compliment to western medicine.

I combine this philosophy with my Vinyasa, Kundalini and Taoist principles.  I look forward to sharing my energy and teachings to all in the South Florida community.
