Yoga For Healing
Heal From Physical and Emotional Unrest Through Body Movement
Moving the body while breathing deeply enhances health and well-being in significant ways. If you experience pain (whether due to trauma or stress), imbalance in your well-being, an overactive mind, restlessness, anxiety, or emotional overwhelm, this healing strategy can be immediately effective for you.
While practicing centered-ness and presence, we spend significant time being in deep hip opening stretches.
This lets the individual become comfortable with experiencing stored tension (which also includes accumulated thought and emotional energy). Over time, the body starts to release this tension permanently. With new openness in the legs, hips, spine, shoulders comes a more connected experience to life — since life is experienced through our bodies! Deep core strengthening opportunities are built into the slow moving sequences, as the individual learns to ignite muscle strength from inside out, thus building palpable confidence and stability in the body structure.
The Yoga Method
Derived from traditional hatha yoga poses, the movements flow from one to the next, with attention given to both the pose and the transition between poses. The body learns fluidity through repeated sequences, initiated by wave-like movements in the spine. The speed is slow, and the body moves according to the pacing of deep abdominal breaths.
A Change of Pace
The many benefits of combining slow-paced body movement with deep breathing include:
What my students have to say.
I literally could not have survived the past two years were it not for Nikita’s yoga classes and light touch healing. After a long and successful career in public education at the secondary level, I suddenly encountered age discrimination workplace bullying by my new boss. I suffered from constant headaches and my blood pressure shot up from 110/60 to 155/70. I lived in a constant state of panic which would have been unsustainable were it not for Nikita’s intervention. During her Saturday morning yoga classes I was able to experience a sense of peace unattainable during the work week. Her kind, positive comments and wise soul provided a life-line. Several sessions of light touch healing produced amazing release from headaches and tension through my neck and back. I left both her yoga and massage therapy sessions feeling that I could get back in the ring and fight for my self-confidence.—Penny Black, Los Angeles School Educator
Her yoga classes are the best that I ever have had. The Triyoga approach is very healing for my spine, and Nikita’s kind and supportive teaching style made it a very positive experience for the body, mind and soul. Miracles happen during the light touch therapy! I would go into a session with a stiff and aching neck, but was able to turn my neck widely after the session without any pain. I believe Nikita is a healer! Nikita was also very flexible and accommodated the sessions to our needs: My husband and I were having joint sessions with her. I recommend Nikita’s work very much!—Prisca G., School Counselor
I am going back to Brazil but I will always think about you tenderly. I loved your classes and I learned a lot with you. Thanks for being so sweet and kind.—Maria B., Yoga Student
