Yoga Therapy  by private appointment
Yoga therapy is a client-centered, comprehensive practice designed to support the body's natural ability to repair and find balance.  These private sessions are guided by an initial interview to assist in defining a client's therapeutic goals.  

A variety of techniques may be employed to address the physical body, including Thai Yoga Therapy methodologies, traditional yoga postures, and fully supported restorative postures.  By utilizing supportive props, the benefits of Yoga Therapy are accessible even to those recovering from injury or illness.  Emotional and spiritual realms of being are supported through breath work, meditation, and guided imagery.  These complement the physical aspects of supported postures, aiding to balance the body and ease the mind.

Shawn has completed Level I & II studies in Therapeutic Yoga with Cheri Clampett and Arturo Peal, through the White Lotus Foundation, Thai Yoga Therapy with Phoebe Diftler of Los Angeles, and has received certification as a Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT).  Her 30 years as a provider of anesthesia brings a deep understanding of breath physiology and it's quieter subtleties. 

Sandy brings keen eyes honed by years as a Physical Therapist to her private Yoga Therapy clients.  Starting with the breath as a basic parameter and guide to movement, Sandy offers insight as to how yoga brings awareness to our activities of daily living, on and off our mats.  Sandy has also received certification as a Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT).

Jutta completed a three year training (1994-96) as a Breath Therapist, at the respected Ilse-Middendorf Institute for the Perceptible Breath, in Berlin, Germany.   Perception of  the breath, as the very nucleus of life, weaves gracefully  through her yoga teachings and her gentle touch as a massage therapist.  It is through breathing, sensing, and centering, by which she supports an integration of body, mind, and spirit.  Jutta has also received certification as a Yoga Therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT).

​​​​​Yoga for Balance with Flexi-Bar™  

This class combines yoga poses with the vibration techniques of the Flexi-Bar, a fiberglass bar with weighted ends that has proven scientifically to activate and to strengthen the smaller deep-lying muscle groups, to improve balance, flexibility and posture.  The Flexi-Bar has been awarded the seal of approval of the Campaign for Healthier Backs, the AGR quality cachet in 2007. (Aktion Gesunder Ruecken, Germany)

After warming-up with easy mobilization of the spine, shoulders and pelvis, we will swing the oscillation bar at low amplitudes stimulating the connective tissues and entire chains of deep-lying muscles while being in specific yoga poses. To unravel further tensions in the vitalized tissues, we will end our practice in Savasana.

Yin Yoga with Myofascial Release
Yin Yoga works on the Yin tissues, the web of connective tissue which is everywhere in our body. It lies within the inner layer of our skin, interpenetrates every bone, joint, organ, tissue and cell.   It allows our muscles and organs to smoothly slide upon each other. This continuous network is rich in sensory nerve endings providing us with the ability to feel our body as a whole.

Fascia is found throughout our body as a fiber and fluid based tri-dimensional web of connective tissue. When unrestricted, it allows our bones, muscles, organs, blood vessels and nerves to smoothly slide upon each other. This continuous fascial network is rich in innumerable sensory nerve endings providing us with the ability to feel our body as a whole.  According to the studies of Thomas S. Myers, there are several myofascial meridians to distinguish.  These include the Superficial Back line, Superficial Front line, Lateral line, Spiral line, Arm line, Functional lines and Deep Front Line.

Yin Yoga poses are held between 3 to 5 minutes to allow the connective tissue to elongate and rehabilitate.
The practice involves extensive use of a variety of props, blankets, blocks, straps, and bolsters to name a few.  Yin Yoga calms the mind and the nervous system, which enables us to turn inward, "yin-ward", and to focus on the rhythm of the natural flow of the breath. These are "Ongoing classes" which may be attended by pass or walk-in.  All levels are welcome!

Difficulty: *

Wed 9:30a & 7:15p

Restorative Yoga 

monthly offering

A full 2 hour treat offered monthly as a reminder to take time for ourselves, and simply focus on letting go and letting be. Restorative Yoga invites the body to relax and rest deeply through passive, supported postures, enhancing realms of our parasympathetic nervous systems. By offering your body and mind time to rest deeply in stillness, the breath acts as a soothing balm of present intention for the mind, supporting the body's innate wisdom toward healing.  Within this quiet, safe space, lies an opportunity to investigate habitual holding patterns in your body and release tension and fatigue. As you learn to observe the sensations of your body without identifying with them, this "non-doing" acts as a window to the core of your being.  Turning deeper inward, you begin to realize how external perceptions are biased by internal emotions and sensations. 
Supported postures are sustained for 5-10 minutes, invoking deepening states of relaxation as a portal to meditation.   Open to all, novice to experienced practitioners.

A safe, gentle, breath-centered practice for those beginning their second trimester of pregnancy, with pose modifications as gestational weeks require.  This class will explore basic yoga postures, breath and relaxation techniques, helping  reduce common discomforts of pregnancy.  You will also learn the art of Kegel exercises which strengthen the pelvic floor in preparation for childbirth and postpartum.  Classes emphasize connection with your 'new life' through work with the breath, and supporting your body, mind, and spirit.

Through the year our staff of Yoga Therapists offer a variety of sessions addressing specific health conditions, such as arthritis, scoliosis, or back pain.   It is here you will explore how yoga may support your body's natural ability to repair and find balance tailored to your specific abilities. 

Tuesday Therapeutic sessions may also examine the supporting practices of the traditional 8 limbs of yoga-  practices which deepen understanding "beyond asana" (postures) such as pranayama, mudra, chakra awareness and meditation.

$5 Community Evening Flow 
After Newbies, then what?  For some, the skills acquired in Newbies I & II are the asana appetizers for moving forward into exploring other styles of Yoga or more challenging classes such as our "Flow" classes.  This class provides a 'bridge' from one side of the river to the other, much as we might move from 'calm' currents, into more challenging rapids. Here, you closely examine Sun Salutations A & B, to build strength and stamina in Flow sequences, yet be ever mindful of critical transitions and ways to modify alignment within your unique abilities.
This class is suited for beginners and experienced students, wishing to deepen their exploration of Vinyasa style yoga, and at $5, a great way to s t r e t c h your yoga dollar!   (exact fee appreciated)

Yoga Newbies I is a comfortably paced introductory class for those new to yoga.   Sessions run 5 weeks, and include 

an introduction to yoga philosophy, fundamentals of basic standing, seated, restorative poses, and introductory back strengthening and hip openers.  

Newbies I/II progress as a review and refinement of Newbies I, and continues exploration of asana (poses) and yoga philosophy.  Teaching methods focus on strength and flexibility, emphasizing principles of alignment, breathing, body-specific modifications, and use of props.  

As you move forward, you may choose to study with one teacher or several.  Each of our instructors bring their own creative teachings to the mat for these entry level classes, offering you a well rounded eclectic learning experience.  While it is recommended for those with no yoga experience to begin with Newbies I, if schedules do not allow, many will be equally comfortable beginning with our Newbies I/II class.

From our Community

We felt cared for when you both took the time to adjust us as needed and provide individual coaching in order for us to maximize our experience. Now we know what you mean by Yoga Therapy services!

It was so enriching and therapeutic for us, especially as social services workers who are stressed out and hold our tension in our bodies...

especially in our arms and shoulders apparently….

so tight!


$5 Community Morning Flow 
'Vinyasa', or to 'place in a special way', is a linking or continual flow of asana (postures) arising from the Sun and Moon Salutations.  Initiated and tethered by the breath, this style becomes a moving form of meditation, strengthening our response and connection to life's 'present moments'.  Drawing from several yoga traditions and creative intuition, this class is well suited for those with prior yoga experience seeking a moderate cardiovascular challenge, and deepening studies of inversions, back bending and arm balances.

I have been attending Shawn's classes over a 10 year period. Her ability to explain Yoga in the context of Yoga history, and physiology in a meaningful way makes her classes more than just another physical exercise experience. And, yet; her quirky humor makes us not take ourselves too seriously as we examine our own abilities to follow her lead. I always look forward to her workshops, and sessions because I always get something useful to add to my practice.
