Welcome

Hello. Welcome to the practice...


Psychodynamic Yoga is an integrated approach to healing  the existential sense of painful separation in the body and the mind. By using the Yogic method of self-inquiry, it gently engages the question:

"In essence, Who are you?"

Why Yoga Therapy?


"Because there is suffering" (-Buddha).

In response to suffering, there is practice. When Yoga becomes "inquiry in action" ("Yoga karmasu kausalam") it can end suffering. In practice, Yogic Therapy is an expression of skillful inquiry. Above all, it is a healing journey into the body-mind that can transform pain into freedom, life, and love.

In my practice, I listen. At my office, you will find a quiet, safe space where your voice, your words, and your silences are heard with fundamental respect. I work with people for whom internal and/or social pressure have become too much. By combining meditation, yoga, and nondual self-inquiry, blocks can be overcome.
