Work with  an experienced, professional yoga instructor to create a personalized breathing, movement and/or meditation practice that addresses your specific needs. You can choose to work one-on-one or with one or more friends, at a time that suits your schedule.

Biofeedback

Biofeedback can relieve and ease chronic pain, reduce stress and anxiety and increase relaxation by training the patient in relaxation, mindfulness, and self-regulation skills. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as heart function, breathing, muscle activity and skin temperature and accurately “feed back” to the user to promote changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior. What we can see, we can change.
