Sound Bath

These ancient healing instruments are tuned to the frequencies that our minds and bodies respond to on a physiological and neurological level. For the ultimate somatic experience, sound baths can be combined with:

  • Breathwork
  • Movement
  • Yoga
  • Energy Work
  • Guided Meditations

Reiki

Reiki is a way of life aligning with the universal source of love, light and harmony. In the mid 1800’s Mikao Usui developed this healing technique to help people shift and release negative energy and emotions, and allow this universal life force energy to flow freely through their body. Reiki is effective in helping with many ailments including stress, anxiety, pain and sleep. Each session is tailored to the needs of the client. This is a hands-off healing method, and can be performed over the phone and virtually.

Yoga Classes

Sarah teaches Hatha Yoga for private lessons, private groups, and athletic teams. There are many long-term physical and emotional benefits to having a yoga practice, including overall improvement of physical and emotional health, improvement of athletic performance and protection from injuries, as well as building community. Sarah works with her clients to create the best yoga practice for their lifestyle and needs.

Stress Management Consulting

Stress is emotional, and it is also physical. According to a Harvard medical study, chronic stress can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, digestive disorders, decreased immune system, anxiety, depression, along with many other health problems. In addition it can also lend to learning challenges and mood disorders. Navigating life’s obstacles requires balance, self-care and compassion. The first step is recognizing that stress is effecting the quality of your life, and robbing you from the joy that surrounds you. The tools you need are all inside you, and working with Sarah to fine-tune your innate stress management system will help you learn to cope with the challenges that come your way while helping you live in alignment with peace and joy.

FAQ

A yoga class is a generalized approach for teaching a series of poses and meditations, led by a teacher who is certified with 200 or 500 hours of training in yoga.

Yoga Therapy is an individualized approach that is goal-orientated with measured outcomes for specific changes addressing the needs of the individual or group.

An IAYT-Certified Yoga Therapist has a minimum of 1000 hours of training over a 2-year period of time (the equivalent of a masters degree) and 24 continuing education credits required every three years to maintain that certification.

Sarah creates a personalized program for each client based on the intake meeting. Sarah and the client work together to set goals, stay on target and celebrate the wins. The client receives a report at the end of each session so they know how they are doing and how much progress they have made towards their set goals. Upon request, formal reports can be prepared for other professionals.

All of the therapies and workshops are tailored to meet the needs of the client. Sarah works with teenagers and adults who have ADD, ADHD, Aspergers, Autism, learning challenges, language disorders, physical ailments, social anxiety, stress and panic disorders.

Other clients include people who need support in self care, are overwhelmed with stress, feel stuck, have negative thinking, suffer from anxiety and/or depression, post traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, illness, grief and pain or are on the path of self-exploration.
