These are half, full or multiple day sessions where we do a deeeep dive into what is going on with you. Why do you still have pain years after an injury? Why can you do this without pain, but not that? Why can't you get back to doing that thing you love so much?
During these Intensives, we will spend a lot of time with hands on work, addressing circulation, inflammation, lymph, organ and nerve health, as well as musculoskeletal health. I will assess your positioning, chronic holding patterns, movement patterns and tissue integrity and health. I will offer you exercise, movement, breathing, mindfulness, BodyMind Coaching and nervous system care, understanding that your capacity for change is limited by how resilient your nervous system is. We will look at stress and trauma, your window of tolerance and how large that window is. We may choose to spread our Intensives out over several months to allow your nervous system the opportunity to adjust and change and grow capacity.
There are no hard and fast rules, only that you are open to learning and committed to doing the work. 1000% committed. This is the work, the hard stuff, looking at things we may not want to look at. You may need additional support to maneuver through this. Can you feel better without going deeper? Likely, yes. Will you heal if you don't go deeper? Likely, no, not completely. It's up to you. Know that, when you are ready to DO.THE.THING, make the change and motivated to go for it, I am here to walk with you through your journey.
Think of these Intensives as a VIP Experience with the focus 100% on your healing. Intensives include exclusive access to me for 1/2, full day or multi-day BodyMind Coaching session, bodywork, and assessments based on your problem(s) including:
Fertility (decreasing stress to increase your chances of conceiving, scheduling 3 months out prior to starting to conceive with the first intensive, then working together for the next two months)
Rehabilitation of Injury
Stress related illness and recovery
Just feeling better
I also provide instruction in Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Ball work for self-myofascial health, exercise and movement recommendations and other instruction based on your need. All home equipment is included along with written and/or video instruction. Contact me for more information and to arrange your Intensive at 320.354.YOGA.
What to Expect:
We will begin with a history, some physical examination and discussion about your goals. This is followed by a BodyMind Coaching Session and hands on bodywork and concluding the morning with the completion of your BodyMind Coaching session. We will take a break for lunch. The afternoon begins with a movement session, including outside movement if weather permits, and self-myofascial care instruction. You will spend some time putting pen to paper, reflecting on what you have learned. We finish the day with another BodyMind Coaching Session and some more bodywork.
This a general outline of our time together because each Intensive will look different based on your needs and goals.
You may be able to submit part of the cost of your Intensive as an out of network service to your insurance company if we determine physical therapy is a part of your Intensive. Please see here for more information on how this works.
