Yoga

Yoga has many definitions. However, Sarah believes that yoga means union. More specifically, it means “uniting with what works for you.” Sarah teaches you how to connect to your own healing breath to support your daily movements.

 

Sarah uses practices from Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga, restorative yoga poses, deep breathing exercises, and guided meditation to support healing from trauma, social anxiety, stress relief, injury prevention, injury recovery and overall physical and mental wellbeing. Sarah teaches yoga for beginners, as well as those who are more experienced with the craft.

 

Sarah offers one-on-one sessions as well as group sessions for her clients. She offers customized programs based on your schedule to help you become united with what you need on each given day.

CST

Craniosacral Therapy

Developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger; Craniosacral therapy is increasingly used as a preventive health measure. It is known to be effective for a wide range of medical problems such as chronic pain, reoccurring sports injuries, headaches, TMJ, postpartum, depression, concussion symptoms, sleeplessness, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), illnesses, stress and in some cases even neurological impairment.

 

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle practice used to release tensions and holding patterns deep within the body; often relieving pain and dysfunction.

Practitioners use their hands to connect with the craniosacral rhythm and affect the cerebrospinal fluid; who’s job it is to cushion the brain and act as a shock absorber for the central nervous system. It also circulates nutrients and chemicals filtered from the blood and removes waste products from the brain.

 

CST assists in releasing restrictions that may be influencing the craniosacral system. By doing this it can optimize the fluid movement through the patient’s central nervous system.

Accessing the cranium and the sacrum (craniosacral) through light touch helps clients directly affect their Parasympathetic nervous system where all rest and digestion takes place and most healing begins.

To increase your muscular endurance. Whether you’re an athlete recovering from a sports injury, a working professional dealing with stress and anxiety, or you’re simply interested in trying something new, pilates can help you enhance your physical strength, flexibility, posture, and mental awareness.

 

As an experienced pilates instructor, Sarah will teach you how to truly engage and understand your body. By placing an emphasis on your body’s core, pilates can help increase your muscular endurance, improve your balance and coordination, and enhance your posture with a much lower chance of injury than other forms of exercise.

corporate-wellness

Corporate Wellness

Corporations have a responsibility to take care of their employees and lead by example in their communities.

It has been proven that yoga, meditation and stress relief increase health and decrease sick days.  Work stresses and life stresses are very real.

 

HR department heads regularly meet with Sarah to design 15, 30 and 45min group yoga, pilates, breathing, mediation and well-being sessions. Some corporations provide this on a weekly basis and even incorporate a 15min meditation session before meetings to create focus, raise energy levels, enhance creativity and promote team building.

 

Corporations that are adaptable are ones that communicate affectively, are flexible and respond well to change. Becoming adaptable takes practice. On our mats we can learn everyday skills that make or break how we respond and interact in office environments.

 

In order to have longevity in a company there must be an environment where that is possible. When employees and their environments are healthy space is created for longevity to occur and thrive.

 

When corporations honor employees, knowing that they too have stresses and everyday challenges that need support employees are more likely to show their loyalty when that company in turn has it’s own challenges.

“The brain is the human body’s most mysterious organ. It learns. It changes. It adapts. It tells us what we see, what we hear. It lets us feel love. I think it holds our soul. But no matter how much research we do, no one can really say how all the delicate gray matter inside our skull works. And when it’s hurt, when the human brain is traumatized, well, that’s when it gets even more mysterious.”
