Several years ago, I ran into some difficult times in my life, as we all do. I became significantly involved in a yoga practice and found it so helpful that I decided to become a yoga teacher. I wanted to share this valuable path with any of my clients who might be interested including it as part of their therapy. The results are pretty amazing.

Approximately two thirds of my practice now are people who are including yoga, meditation, and breath work to their regime. The feedback that I receive from my clients is that these practices definitely make them feel better. Clients report feeling more relaxed, more focused, and a general sense of well being.

I invite you to give it a try. Start by taking a class. Commit to going 6 or 8 times before you decide whether to continue. Make a brief note after your class and later that evening. Pay attention to your stress level that day and to levels of muscle tension in your body. Notice the quality of your sleep that night. Pay attention to your mood that day.  I’m willing to bet it will be as beneficial to you as it was to me.
