Foundations in Anatomy & Body Science Part 2

Muscle Physiology & Function

In the 2nd part of my Online Course through Udemy we will learn about how the Soft Tissues of the body are Structured and how that impacts the way they function. This includes how to stretch a muscle (5 ways) how muscles contract, the job of fascia and how to improve the resilience of these tissues through progressive and varied loading. Click Here to access the course, or see the link below for part 1. 

Virtual Yoga Therapy


Yoga Therapy is the skilled application of the yogic tools to bring about healing and optimal wellness. Laura combines her experience as a yoga teacher and an Occupational Therapist to customize each session. 


Virtual Teaching:  Yoga Anatomy for YTT

Many yoga teachers do not feel comfortable with the anatomy segment of YTT- that is where Laura can help. Laura's experience as a Therapist & yoga teacher has prepared her to teach this sometimes overwhelming topic in a way that is easy to absorb and is directly applicable to being a more competent yoga teacher!

Yoga Teacher Mentoring Program


Having guidance from an experienced yoga teacher can help new teachers gain confidence and direction in their new role as a yoga teacher. Laura is uniquely qualified to offer guidance to teachers looking to specialize in therapeutic practice or to go on to ear a certification as a Yoga Therapist.

Nature Therapy

Regaining a natural connection 

Our connection to the natural world is vital to our overall health. Laura utilizes nature in her work as an Occupational Therapist as well as a Yoga Therapist through the practice of "Lifestyle Medicine" - making contact with nature part of your daily lifestyle. This may include practicing yoga outside, forest bathing, walking on the beach, camping, meditation by a body of water, earthing or even renting a camper (see below for my vintage style fiberglass trailer rental). 

Scamp RV Rental

Nature Therapy + Comfort

As part of Nature Therapy Laura encourages her clients to get outside- if sleeping on the ground is not your thing using a camper is a great option. This offers the best combination of contact with nature while still having access to all the creature comforts like a bed, a bathroom and a fridge! You can rent Laura's 16 foot Scamp Travel Trailer and go on a nature retreat of your own at RVshare.com

Yoga for the Lymphatic System

Yoga Therapy 

The Lymphatic System relies on movement and breath to function effectively, making yoga one of the most effective ways of improving Lymphatic flow. This often ignored system is vital to our immune function and recent research has shown it is also a vital part of brain health. Laura has been working as a Certified Lymphedema Therapist since 2016, working with individuals experiencing swelling due to cancer treatment, surgery or hereditary circulatory conditions. Yoga for the lymphatic system is also a great way to support overall health and recovery following athletic events.

Yoga for Parkinson's Disease & Neurological Conditions

Yoga Therapy 

Yoga is a system that communicates directly with the nervous system. We use breathing, movement and sensory input to convey a message to the body's control center to facilitate relaxation. Recent research has shown how yoga can be effective in the management of both the motor and non-motor (emotional) symptoms of Parkinson's Disease. Laura Has been working in a specialty outpatient neurological clinic since 2015. She is certified in LSVT BIG for Parkinson's Disease and incorporates her knowledge as an Occupational Therapist into each of her yoga sessions.

Kundalini Yoga for Energy Management

Therapeutic Yoga

Kundalini yoga is a practice that is extremely effective at helping us to work through difficult emotions, to break up patterns of stagnation and to find a deep inner resource of energy. Kundalini yoga is all about awakening the powerful dormant energy that is already inside each of us, but is often not being utilized. The movement patterns, breath work, chanting and deep meditation techniques of Kundalini yoga can help us to harness our energy like no other form of yoga.

Meditation and Breathwork for Anxiety, Depression and Focus

Therapeutic Session

Yoga gives us many techniques for communicating with our nervous system, our body's command center. These techniques can be used to train the mind, redirect our attention, harness our natural energy and foster a state of calm focus. The process of working with an experienced teacher will start with an assessment to determine what your goals are and what techniques will be beneficial to you. Then Laura will teach you the techniques that you can integrate into your daily life that will be the most effective at managing anxiety, alleviating depression and maintaining that sense of focus and connection that we all want to achieve.

Thai Yoga Bodywork 

 Massage and Manual Stretching

 

What is Thai Yoga Bodywork?

Thai Yoga bodywork combines passive yoga stretches with massage techniques to relax the body and quiet the mind.  Each technique works to open the energy channels of the body to create balance and leave the receiver feeling calm yet invigorated.  A Thai Bodywork session incorporates elements of acupressure, massage, meditation, assisted stretching, joint mobilizations, energy work and yoga postures with a basis in the science of Ayurveda.

The Graston Technique: 

 The Graston Technique is a form of Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization. Stainless steel instruments are used to manipulate soft tissue in order to break up adhesions, soften scar tissue, release trigger points, lengthen muscle tissue and treat areas of pain. This technique is especially effective in the treatment of tendonitis, fascia restrictions or inflammation and areas of chronic muscle tightness.  The Graston Technique can be added into any Massage Therapy session, Thai Massage or Yoga Therapy session.
