Reduce your pain. Improve your movement. See new possibilities.
Imagine what life could be like if you started waking up feeling well-rested, energized, and ready to enjoy the day ahead of you. Instead of feeling stiff, sore or just plain terrible, your body actually feels good. It’s stronger, more flexible, and can more easily move the way you want it to.
The stress of your former hectic life isn’t as intense as it used to be. You’ve become more self-aware and are making choices that lead to more peace, fulfillment, and a more manageable—but still productive!—way of living.
Your mind is clear and quiet, allowing you to be in each moment whole-heartedly. You have more freedom to say YES to the activities that truly light you up…because pain and tension are no longer holding you back as often.
Gone are the days of struggling, suffering, and pushing through pain. Sounds good, right?
Private Yoga Therapy Sessions can help make this your reality…
If you’re ready to commit to the process and are willing to invest your attention and energy in transforming your health and wellbeing.
Why Choose Private Yoga Therapy?
You don’t need to push as hard, as fast or as much as you think you do to get through your challenges. You can’t heal pain or suffering by constantly moving into pain. There is another way.
Private Yoga Therapy sessions with me combine yoga (breathing, movement and stillness), Ayurveda, principles of kinesiology and bio-mechanics, energy work, somatics and reflex integration into one gentle but powerful modality that can help you:
- Recover from an injury
- Improve posture, core stability and strength
- Increase flexibility
- Quiet and calm your mind
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Sleep better through the night
- Age with grace and vitality
- Plant your feet in the present moment
- Live and move in the world with more ease
- Reduce or eliminate chronic or acute pain (sciatic, back, neck, head, hip, joints, muscles, etc.)
How it Works
Private Yoga Therapy includes:
- An initial assessment
- A re-assessment at each visit
- Personal goal setting
- New or different movements based on how you are moving and feeling
- Awareness exercises to help you develop your self-care tool kit
- A custom home program designed just for you and your unique needs
Private sessions are customized for your individual body, challenges, lifestyle and goals. Each session is based on your needs at that time, so no two sessions will be exactly the same.
I am your partner in this process but you are the key to your success. What you put in is what you get out. Together we’ll explore movements, habits and thought patterns that contribute to your pain so you can empower yourself to set new ones. You’ll learn to alleviate or avoid pain and move in a way that feels free—even enjoyable.
All you need to bring is your curiosity, an open mind and a yoga mat. Come ready to practice in bare feet or socks.
If you’re new to yoga or don’t think you can do it, not to worry. I’ll safely and gently guide you into suitable movements, meditations or breath work, providing hands-on assistance from time to time. There is never any pushing, forcing or straining in this practice.
You may be surprised at how subtle some of the movements are. Rest assured—even the tiniest actions can lead to big shifts.
“I struggled through what was thought to be age-related but severe sciatic pain, believing that ‘working through the pain’ was the way out. I admit that although I liked Civi and her philosophy, I wasn’t initially convinced that the ‘gentle’ things done in Yoga Therapy would do anything. After session 2 I was aware of getting stronger. Each week between visits progress seemed to occur. I was feeling less pain and more activity and energy. It was as if my wrecked body was discovering alternative paths to strength and mobility! Week after week I am aware of absolute functional improvement. I can get dressed and put on my socks and shoes without sitting down or holding onto a wall!”
