I Hear This ALL the Time


Client: Amy, my doctor said I should try yoga to help with my (insert almost any health or wellness issue here).

Me: Great! I agree. What else did they say?

Client: That was pretty much it.

Me: What's your plan?

Client: I have no idea what to do next? Do I just find a class somewhere?

Me: Let's talk.

The good news is more health and wellness practitioners are recommending yoga to their patients. This has led to millions of people trying yoga. Unfortunately, the recommendations aren't specific enough, leading to about half of the people who try, to quit without reaping the amazing benefits of yoga. Why?

Yoga is a very broad and diverse practice. There are many styles of yoga. Some require very little to no movement, such as Yoga Nidra, and some that are extremely challenging and only for the most fit yoga practitioner.

Additionally, if you are exploring yoga and you have an existing physical or mental health concern, you need to know how to keep yourself safe in a class. What does this mean?

Keeping yourself safe means knowing how to adapt yoga to meet your specific needs. This class will teach you exactly that.
