Yoga is Therapy individual yoga therapy sessions combine the healing art of yoga with physical therapy knowledge. Jaimie observes the whole body and not just the area of pain or discomfort. She gives her clients yoga poses, including stretching and strengthening exercises, to align their bodies into balance. Jaimie is passionate about educating her clients about breathing, stress management, and personal influences that help create positive change. She also uses a customized approach, here is an example:
Clients are encouraged to understand their bodies and find a healthy relationship or lesson from any challenges they are facing within their body or mind.

Motivation and commitment are key components to making the most of your individual sessions.
What are Jaimie's credentials? What does Yoga Therapy and C-IAYT mean?
Jaimie has her doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT), she is a Yoga Alliance Certified Continuing education provider, an educator for 200 level teacher training (E-RYT), and certified International Association of Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT).
Yoga Therapy is a new field of wellness that has grown in the last two to three years. Yoga therapy is different than yoga teaching. In fact, the Yoga Alliance, which provides registration to yoga teachers, will not allow teachers to describe their style of yoga as therapeutic. The field of yoga therapy is evolving and provides yoga teachers an opportunity to complete a 1000-hour training. Yoga therapy training involves in-depth training in anatomy, biomechanics, and a deeper understanding of koshas, Ayurveda, and pranayama. Each yoga therapy program has different areas of focus. There are yoga therapy trainings for healthcare providers that offer CEUS. The International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) has taken the lead on creating requirements for yoga therapy schools. Their intention is to provide a certification (C-IAYT) to individuals who meet or exceed the requirements to become a yoga therapist. I and several of my colleagues were recently grand-parented in and awarded an International Association of Yoga Therapist Certification (C-IAYT). There is no requirement at this time to be C-IAYT in order to provide yoga therapy; however, this may possibly change in the future.
Does Jaimie use yoga therapy personally?
Yes! Jaimie started yoga for fitness and then started to notice her chronic back pain, lordotic posture, along with her mental and emotional state improved. Yoga is therapy for her because it helps direct her body and mind into a positive and healing state despite the chaos she may feel going on around her. She uses her sitting breathing practice every morning, along with modifying poses for her body and watches her breathing during asana practice. These practices have allowed yoga to be her therapy.
What if I'm not sure I can even do yoga?
If you can breathe and move, you can do yoga. Yoga can be done while sitting, standing on both feet or on one foot, or even lying down.
