Yoga Therapy teaches you how to become fitter, to cultivate a clearer mind and a new refreshing outlook. It gives you time to focus on yourself, to be responsive to your body, to what’s feeding you emotionally and making sparks fly in your life.
Stretching, breathing exercises, meditating and movement are all pillars of mental and physical health. Yoga hits all four of these in a ten minute to one hour practice, making it one of the most effective means of supporting your body and mind to be healthy every day.
When you take time to move your body through all it’s motions; forward, backbend, twisting, side stretch and lengthening, you don’t just limber up your spine and joints, you check in and take inventory. Asking, “how am I today?” allows you to notice little things that lead to stress, illness or injury.
Improving how you feel, in your body and emotionally, creates ripples of well-being throughout your life over time. You’ll start living your life fully, participating in activities you enjoy, and spending time with family, friends, and co-workers.
Taking care to move and stretch mindfully keeps your body limber and loosens up knots in your muscles that come from being at a desk, standing too much, or if you’re doing repetitive motions in work or hobbies. By doing yoga regularly during the week, you’ll eliminate stress that builds up in your body and causes aches and pains negatively impacts how you feel.

Yoga therapy focuses on each individual’s unique needs and wants for their body and temperament. Each lesson is a response to you, as we learn what works for your body, and where you are in your journey of self-discovery, self-mastery and self-realization.
“The time spent with Frances in one hour is more valuable than 12 group classes put together. It’s the beginning of a personal journey, and why not have a personalized experience?”

“Yoga was something I considered doing after my life became overly stressful and seemingly too much to handle. I looked into group classes but nothing fit my schedule. I really wanted to benefit from taking a class, so I figured the next best thing was to go for a private session with Frances. The time spent with Frances in one hour is more valuable than 12 group classes put together. It’s the beginning of a personal journey, and why not have a personalized experience?
After my second session I knew I would continue to attend private classes with Frances. I could never reach my personal goals in yoga without her continued guidance and support. My 20 minute daily practice has allowed me to clear my head, and prepare me for the day ahead and whatever it may bring. ”
