Yoga Therapy

aka: Blissed Bodywork

 
Custom yoga therapy for your optimal wellness.

Yoga means union of body, mind, and spirit. It is an ancient practice that involves movement, breathing techniques, and meditation. Contrary to the super bendy pictures and videos you may have seen, the original concept of yoga is to embody the movement from the inside out. Anyone can do yoga! (The therapeutic aspect of my yoga offerings is based in my license in massage therapy.) I create a custom somatic yoga experience for your current needs, guided by my 25+ years in the therapeutic healing & movement arts to help you find and feel results!

 

My approach to yoga is trauma-informed with advanced training to help trauma survivors thrive. Its based in correct postural alignment, and inspired by Forrest, Iyengar, and Anusara yoga. With an extensive Pilates and dance background to draw from, I create your yoga session as a total somatic experience. No fast flows or hot yoga here,  just balance & bliss for YOUR body.

Through yoga therapy, I can help you with:

  • Targeting fascial and muscular adhesions

  • Strengthening

  • Improving flexibility
  • Increasing range of motion

  • Toning

  • Boosting body awareness

  • General fitness

  • Healing past trauma through movement, breath, and meditation techniques

What to expect:

Before we get moving, I'll ask you some questions. Since movement needs vary widely, your practice may be gentle and take place lying down or seated, or it may be more active with standing and flowing. We might use props like blocks, balls, foam rollers, magic circles, bolsters, straps and stretchy band resistance devices.

You'll want to wear comfortable athletic clothes for your session. Yoga is also done barefoot.

 

Customized yoga gives you tools for life!

Bring your phone and you can record your session and refer back to it whenever you want.

The therapeutic aspect is done under Bhrigha's License for Massage Therapy.

with Bhrigha Getz, LMT, RYT, Usui Reiki Master Teacher

Prior to working with Bhrigha, I was in chronic pain and was limited in my mobility. Now I can walk over an hour without pain. I feel better in my body. Encouraged by Bhrigha, I am doing yoga again. In private sessions with Bhrigha, she designed a yoga practice tailor-made to me and my unique issues. I’m feeling stronger and excited to move my body. Movement doesn’t have to hurt!
