Yoga Therapy – FAQ’s
“Gail helped me tremendously with yoga therapy in the year following my father’s death. The grief and sadness and depression were so profound that I found myself unbalanced and unable to do much of anything. Gail’s compassion and deep knowledge guided our sessions and I began to feel lighter and lighter. I highly recommend her private sessions for any health or emotional issue you are struggling with. My gratitude to you Gail.” ~ Melissa Pickell
What can I expect during a private yoga therapy session?
First, we’ll discuss your health profile and goals, so I can choose the most appropriate practices for you. During our first session, I’ll introduce yoga therapy techniques, which may include asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), meditation, and TRE (tension/trauma releasing exercises). With each session, we’ll refine which practices best meet your needs. You’ll receive written instructions at the end of four sessions so that you can continue on your own. You don’t need any prior experience, and there’s no need to be physically flexible.
Can you really help with my condition?
I’ve worked with clients on stress management, insomnia, anxiety, depression, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), hypertension, cancer, arthritis, slipped disc and sciatica, allergies and asthma, knee pain, neck and back pain, digestive problems, sleep apnea, and spiritual development. Please see the Inspiring Stories page to read about the healing that my clients have experienced!
What happens after our initial consult?
Once we decide to work together, I get to work on formulating your yoga therapy program with percipience, acuity and foresight. I appropriately and practically apply my knowledge, understanding, insight, and intuition to best meet your needs.
How many sessions will I need?
After your free initial consult, you’ll need a minimum of four private sessions in order to fully grasp the new practices and incorporate them into your lifestyle. After four sessions, some clients choose to continue on a regular basis, while others check in from time to time.
