Yoga Therapy

Yoga Therapy will help you to move the way you were designed to move. Pain and tension is your body’s way of getting your attention and letting you know that dysfunction is present. Therapeutic Yoga uses traditional principles of yoga along with a modern understanding of anatomy, physiology and bio mechanics to relieve stress and promote recovery of injury and illness.

One one one yoga therapy consultations are carried out by Amie Taylor. Amie will help you to uncover the unconscious patterns that lead to pain and tension and design a personalized program to help you integrate these new patterns into your life and activities.

At Alchemy in Motion we offer mat Pilates classes. Pilates is a gentle, low impact form of exercise which is aimed at improving your Deep Motion SystemsTM (including your pelvic floor and core) and whole body strength. Our classes have a strong emphasis on breathing, pelvic floor and core control and are effective in managing back and pelvic pain and toning abdominal muscles.
