Yoga therapy

Yoga Therapy is a form of holistic healing or integrated medicine that uses the ancient science of yoga to enhance health and well-being. It adapts the practice of yoga to address specific health conditions as well as preventative habits.

Megan offers personalized Yoga Therapy and Private Meditation appointments in person and virtually.

The virtual yoga therapy sessions with Megan were amazing. Her teaching style is calm, enthusiastic and overall, really unique. From the first moment I felt safe and seen with my different problems. She explains everything very well and her instructions are always on point. Besides the new movements, which were customized, so I could always choose and try different options, her guidance and insights were what I most valued. The sessions changed the way I was thinking about my body. I am learning to trust my body again and listening to what I need. But the best part: I started having fun with movement again! After some years with tight muscles and overall body pain I started dreading every movement, especially stretching and working out. Movement became a chore to me, that I needed to do, but I could not enjoy it. I enjoy doing the exercises I learned with Megan. Now my body is craving simple and painless movement throughout the day. Also, my pain levels are dropping. “

The first thing I do daily before I even get out of bed is to do the yoga exercises that you showed me for my feet, ankles, knees and hips. I still have periodic episodes of neuropathy in my feet (usually at night) but the occurrences are less frequent. More importantly, when I do have the episodes, I do the yoga steps for my toes and ankles and it makes the pain much less severe. My knees have also felt much better since I started doing the exercises. I am so thankful for all of your help and advice. You have made a HUGE difference in the quality of my daily life!

Some of the ways in which yoga therapy differs from yoga are:

• Yoga therapy is completely adaptable and works with your goals. Each session is tailored to the client’s needs; whether you want to gain relief from chronic pain, facilitate injury recovery, improve flexibility, reduce stress and sleep better, improve body awareness and well-being, get help with anxiety or depression, or simply retain your youthful appearance and energy.

• Yoga therapy targets the practice to specific conditions. Most health issues benefit from some yoga asanas or yoga breathing techniques and not others. A yoga therapy program for sciatic pain for example, would be very different from a yoga therapy practice targeting anxiety.

• Yoga therapy adjusts the poses to your body’s needs. A Yoga Therapist shows the client how to modify poses to their body using props and gentle alignment assists. This ensures that you get full benefits from each pose and feel safe and confident doing a personalized home practice.

• Yoga therapy uses adjunct techniques to speed your progress. When called for, the session may include energy therapy, sound healing or Thai Yoga bodywork to facilitate a deeper release.

• Yoga therapy is offered in individual sessions enabling the teacher to guide you in the fine subtleties of muscle relaxation, stretching, and strengthening.

Yoga Therapy takes a bio-psycho-social approach to health, then adds the spiritual to recognize purpose in life, the importance of inner practices and relationship with self.

Pain is not an accurate indication of what is happening in the body. Pain also may not be a prediction of what movements, activities and exercises can or cannot be done safely.

Learn to Meditate

There are as many styles, techniques and variations of meditation as there are practices to move your body. Megan will help you find the meditation tools that are most pleasurable for you and support your desired outcome. There is no such thing as a bad meditation. All of these levels  of awareness are powerful states of consciousness that allow our inner Self to stay in balance with the outside world.

About Your Teacher

Megan was initially introduced to the meditative and breathing aspects of yoga in the late 1980’s in Boulder, CO as a long-term method to manage panic attacks. Even when time takes away from a physical practice, meditation continues to be the strong foundation for her mental well being and yoga sadhana (daily spiritual practice).
