Awareness Yoga 

Balance your body, heal your heart

Awareness Yoga at the Ivy House is for any  ‘body.’ Profoundly relaxing and physically healing Awareness Yoga decreases the sympathetic/stress response in the physiology while increasing the rest and digest or parasympathetic nervous system creating optimal health and balance in the body. With hip openers, spinal twists and core opening, Awareness Yoga for the most part is done on the floor and appropriate for all levels including first timers and long time practitioners of yoga.

Yoga means union of the individual mind with universal consciousness.The root of the word yoga in English is the biblical word ‘yoke.’

Embodyment with Corrine
(Private Yoga Therapy)

Embodyment is a hands on healing therapy done fully clothed. It lasts about an hour and sends the individual into a profound state of healing. It is not energy work but utilizes each person’s own para-sympathetic nervous system which is the healing system in the body. One embodyment has the same healing affects on the nervous system as six weeks of Awareness yoga.

“Embodyment is the most effective healing technique I have ever done or had done on me.”
