Yoga came into my life six years ago and became the catalyst for all my emotional and physical healing. This life altering transformation encouraged me to complete a 200 hour, yoga teacher training program through the Yoga Deza Institute in Fayetteville, Arkansas. In addition to this rigorous certification, I spend my weekends taking yoga seminars and reading every book I can find about yogic theories, anatomical explanations, and mechanical properties of the yoga poses.
Now I incorporate my anatomy expertise to help yoga enthusiasts improve their practice both on and off the mat. Whether you have pain in certain poses or an emotional response to limitations of your body, I can offer balance and the support you need to improve!
In the office, meditative scans are used for healing and will teach you to decrease stress, pain levels and emotional memories of trauma or injuries. Learning this quick and powerful version of meditation will accelerate your healing and improve the connection between your mind and physical body.

Brief meditative and yoga therapies are included in my traditional chiropractic treatments but for more focused and an in-depth look at your body during yoga, private yoga therapy is ideal!
Private Yoga Therapy
I’m so excited to announce that we are now accepting private yoga clients!
Now offering “yoga only” sessions to students who would like to take advantage of having medically trained hands guide you through a yoga sequence.
Private yoga lessons offer you the ability to focus on personal interests such as decreasing pain and fear or injury. There is no better way to personally improve flexibility, balance, and strength. Feel free to stay in a pose as long as necessary, receive adjustments, and stress releasing support during each breath. Unlike basic classes, private lessons are a one-on-one experience with the “yoga” doctor so there’s no concern of public anxieties while you learn to become a more empowered, confident you!
Perfect for beginners that feel overwhelmed in typical class settings. In our session, I will design safe and specific sequences for your body type, capability, and previous injuries. You will then feel prepared to join a local yoga studio without aggravating old injuries! Advanced students can take their practice to the next level by workshopping more challenging poses such as deep backbends, inversions, and hip openers. Find tools to sustain your practice and prepare you for further progress.
Sessions will be an hour long with the doctor in our office… no chiropractic adjustments or manual treatment will be provided during that time. Practices will target asanas, pranayama, self-inquiry, and meditation. Private lessons accommodate your personal work schedule for added convenience. The only time that will not be available for hour long sessions is 4-6 pm on Mondays or Thursdays. Private sessions must be cancelled 24 hours in advance or student will be charged for the full rate of the session.
