Therapeutic yoga is a gentle class that incorporates slow movements to mobilize, balance and strengthen the body. In this class, participants will practice exercises to restore mobility and balance to the pelvic and shoulder girdles while promoting functional movement of the spine. This class is most appropriate for those recovering from injury, moving out of a sedentary lifestyle, or looking to heal and balance the body.  A maximum of 10 participants can enroll in each class to facilitate one-on-one attention.

I was referred to Erin by my physiotherapist after re-injuring a previously broken arm in a different yoga class. He recommended Erin as someone who could teach me to practice yoga in a productive and safe manner.  After working with Erin my posture has improved and I have an increased awareness of how to safely move my body given my current restrictions and weaknesses, which are improving all the time! Erin really listens, and provides clear instructions and directions using excellent analogies. From the perspective of a retired teacher, Erin employs effective teaching strategies to guide me to be a reflective and self-aware in my movement and practice of yoga.

I have a new/deeper understanding of my tendency to want to get the poses ‘right’, regardless of pain, rather than listen to my body and work with it slowly and gently. Erin is a skilled communicator and she helped me gain this insight in a supportive, insightful and non-judging manner as she introduced me to small and simple movements to increase body awareness of pain and ranges of movement.

Jackie, Facilitator

Since working with Erin my posture has improved significantly. I have improved range of motion through my hips, and my occasional lower back pain has been relieved.  I have had chronic shoulder pain stemming from old sports injuries, and have had three cortisone injections in one shoulder with decreasing levels of success and three Synvisc injections to help replace the natural fluid in the joint.  During my last visit with my Sports Medicine Doctor, he was impressed with my improved mobility, and curious to know what I had been doing. Therapeutic Yoga! Prior to seeing Erin, I had become sedentary due to the pain I was in. Now, I have resumed my physical activities like golf, hiking, and cycling. Erin creates a very comfortable atmosphere, she listens very well and is clear in her communication.
