Therapeutic Yoga and Movement Therapy
Therapeutic Yoga is a self-empowering process, where the care-seeker and the Yoga therapist, create a personalized and evolving Yoga practice. This practice addresses the illness, injury or goals in a multi-dimensional manner and aims to alleviate suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner.
Therapeutic Yoga helps alleviate symptoms and manage living with chronic conditions with a whole person approach to healing. Therapeutic Yoga aims to create positive causes and conditions that allow your body-breath-mind to heal itself.
Kelly offers both private Movement Therapy sessions and group Therapeutic Yoga classes
Reflexology involves manual manipulation of pressure points in the feet and/or hands. These points are connected to specific parts of the body and your brain that can have blocked or impeded nervous system communication. For each person, the application and the effect of the therapy are unique. Reflexology is one of the safest and least invasive alternative therapeutic practices available.
Shiatsu massage is an alternative massage method that involves manual manipulation of pressure points. Shiatsu massage can help relieve muscle tension and fatigue. It can also help to improve the function of the lymphatic system and circulation system.

Virtual Integrative Yoga Therapy
Integrative Yoga Therapy combines Structural and Functional Yoga with Ayurveda, Psychology, Counselling, Holistic and Natural Health, and Trauma Release to create a unique, effective treatment. This technique provides patients with a depth of knowledge and insight to assist in managing current life challenges and meeting future goals.
Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT) bridges ancient yoga techniques with modern wisdom pinpointing imbalances in order to develop an individual path of health and wellness. We believe that every human being consists of an integrated body-mind-spirit system that functions best when all parts are in balance. Personalized IYT guides each person to greater understanding and deeper awareness, while focused on the continuum of healing. Through one on one private consultation, a typical session will include: pain, injury and postural assessment, muscle strength, flexibility, range of motion, social and emotional evaluation of wellbeing.
IYT can help you accomplish physical goals, manage emotional challenges, and discover spiritual direction.
