Move Feel & Be Well by Integrating Yoga Therapy and Physiotherapy
Move • Feel • Be Well
By blending the science of Physiotherapy with the holistic wisdom of Yoga, you will experience a novel therapeutic approach where the intention is to guide you towards treating and healing yourself with increased awareness of your own movement. You will be engaged and fascinated by the path of your healing when the focus of therapy is broadened to acknowledge how your social, cognitive, emotional, and physical states impact how you move and feel.

The Yoga-Physiotherapy integrated approach is to guide you towards treating and healing yourself with increased awareness of your own movement.

You will have the opportunity to share your story and consider what your desired outcomes are. How can the blend of yoga and physiotherapy best support you? How would you like to feel?….What would you like to be able to do? Who would you like to be as a result of this work?
Creating your customized movement program
During each session you will move through a series of exercises. With Kirsten as your guide, you will explore each exercise, moving mindfully, and discussing your experience. This exploration will lead to an understanding of which movements support your desired outcomes – ultimately leading to your customized movement program.
Reflect. Refine. Re-train
In between sessions, you practice your customized movement program and reflect on your experience so you can report back to Kirsten at your next session. With the information you have gathered, Kirsten will support you to refine and re-train your movements, guiding you along your healing path towards your desired outcomes.
