Yoga for Healing is a holistic practice that addresses the mind, body and the soul. We allow our bodies to build strength gently while working to heal our nervous system and mental space.
In short…with Yoga for Healing you will: build strength, enhance joint movement, gain flexibility AND relax, modify and take things at your pace.
Hello, I’m excited you are here! I started yoga in an effort to relieve constant stress, challenge myself to be present and to confront the incessant mind chatter. (Sound familiar?)
I went through my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in power vinyasa during a period in life when I was extremely physically fit, and yoga soon became another physical challenge I was eager to take on. Handstands, advanced postures, dozens of chaturangas and Yoga Sculpt (yoga with weights).
Then things changed…The hormonal imbalances I had been trying to heal became even more heightened and my health took a sharp turn. Every day was filled with deep fatigue, debilitating depression and physical pains.
Unable to do the yoga I was accustomed to, especially as an instructor, brought on feelings of shame. Then I decided to shift my focus and sought out gentle classes, but they were so hard to find! When I did find them it seemed they were all geared toward the older generation. It seemed there was yoga for older people (gentle) and yoga for young people (power)…something was missing.
I dove deep into the exploration of yoga beyond vinyasa taking classes all over the country from dozens of new teachers to create Yoga for Healing. I can’t wait to share it with you!
I know the road to recovery can feel lonely, but you are not alone. Let’s take another step toward healing together.
7 UNIQUE VIDEOS: Each one has a different physical focus, exploration of a deeper aspect to healing and an intention setting introduction video.
A 25 PAGE WORKBOOK (in PDF format), to guide you through practice on and off the mat, that includes:
How do I access the materials? You will gain instant access to a members only portal where you can stream videos and download other materials. Please note that an internet connection is required to stream and download the videos.
What are the system requirements to access the materials? A stable internet connection with a minimum speed of 768 kb/second is necessary to stream video content from the site.

How long does my site membership last? For the lifetime of the course. If for some reason the site must come down you will get advanced notice and a chance to download all materials.
What if I don’t receive my registration or log in information? Check your Spam folder. Sometimes it accidentally gets sent there.
It’s difficult for me to do normal everyday activities, will I really be able to practice? Yes! You get to take things at your own pace and take breaks. It’s okay to simply sit in stillness or lay in savasana as long as you need. It’s wonderful to have permission to just be still.
Will I lose weight by doing this course? I have no idea. That is not what this course is about. We are working towards functional movement of the body and getting at deeper internal healing both physically and emotionally.
Do I need to be flexible to take these classes? No. You will most likely gain flexibility with consistent practice but it’s not a requirement. If a posture isn’t accessible for you do only what feels right or take a break until we move on to the next posture.
I do a power yoga class regularly, should I take your course? If you are looking to expand or deepen your yoga scope in new ways, or if it seems like power may be too much for your body at this time, then of course.
What activity level do I need to have? You need to be able to sit on the floor and do some standing, although you can use the wall or chair for support.
How often should I practice? Only you know the real answer. Here is what I suggest: No matter what carve out the time for yourself each day to put on a video. If the postures are too much, either sit or lay in a comfortable position with your eyes closed. Day 7 includes an extended guided savasana which… Read more…
