Personal one-on-one yoga training can benefit you, whether you are a beginner yogi, intermediate, or advance practitioner. It’s so easy to get lost in a crowded yoga class, often-times getting overlooked by the instructor. It can be extremely intimidating for the new-comer, especially when the instructor starts spouting out the names of the poses in Sanskrit…

We begin by sitting down and discussing your current habits, future goals, and of course all the excuses that are holding you back. Everyone can achieve the body they’ve always wanted with a little time, motivation, and discipline. We’ll take a look at the foods you’re eating, what you’re not eating enough of, when you’re eating or why you’re eating them. As a team we’ll get you on a consistent path to the body you’ve always wanted!
Thai massage is a slow meditative style of bodywork performed on a floor mat with the recipient fully dressed, in loose, comfortable clothing, or workout attire. The work is done by slow, relaxing palm presses up and down the entire body with focus on tight spots. We then incorporate some gentle stretching. Imagine yoga being done TO you. For those that don’t like massage oil or cream, being naked under a sheet, or just feel like you could use a good stretch, this is the massage style for you!
Rooted in Ancient Asia, and recently popularized by the U.S Olympic athletes, like Michael Phelps, it is an alternative form of medicine in which a local suction is created to the body with glass, plastic, or silicone cups. The suction mobilizes blood flow, and breaks up stagnant Qi/’chi’ from the body in order to promote natural healing from within. The cups can be suctioned on with the pressure of heat from fire, or in our case, a suction gun. The cups can be moved around to stimulate blood flow. They can also remain still in one spot for 10-20 minutes. The circular “bruises” left on the body is said to be heat that is trapped in the body being pulled to the surface. These marks can stay on the body for 2-5 days and it is recommended to stay warm and covered from wind for the next few days after treatment.
Another option is glide cupping, done with silicone cups. Here, we are able to pull the cups around the body and create a light suction, skin rolling feeling. This option does not leave marks and can be incorporated into other massage options.
Structural/Rossiter/Active Release Therapy:
Based on the theories of Ida P. Rolf, movement is the key to pain relief and moving with ease. Our relationship to gravity is fostered on the movements our bodies make day to day. Often these repetitive movement patterns create structural imbalances in our bodies. To create better composition in the body and correct these chronic structural problems, we must go beyond the muscle. We must touch into the fascia, or connective tissue. In all of these movement therapies, whether the recipient is on the table, chair, or floor, the goal is the same. Find the point of tension, and ask for movement. This can be done anywhere on the body, with little or no oil/cream. Athletic attire is required. Achieve quicker, longer lasting results, in less time.
We’ve all heard the saying “You are what you eat” but how many people ever fully take that sentence and examine it? We are a world of programmed foodies, running around the world in search of the best, tastiest, richest meals out there. We are fixated on how good things tastes and pay no attention to what it’s doing to us on the inside. We have government officials telling us what we’re supposed to be eating, solely to make a profit! They don’t care whether or not we are healthy. In fact they’d rather us be sick, so they can make a profit off of the pharmaceuticals they’ll sell us until we die.
Food, today is far more of an addiction than crack or heroine. Sugar, processed foods and our obsession with consuming animal products is killing us. Let’s take a step back and look at what you are really eating. A food diary is required, assisted grocery shopping trips are encouraged, as are simple at-home cooking lessons. Eating right shouldn’t be a new fad, or a trendy diet. It shouldn’t even be seen as hard work for that matter! Let’s work together to create a total lifestyle change and finally achieve those long-term health goals.
