Private Yoga Therapy

So you are curious about Private Yoga and wonder if could help you with your Back Pain? You think you could benefit from a personalized Yoga program designed just for you and your needs?

You are a bit unsure about how this would actually work and if Private Yoga Therapy would be a good fit for you?

I work with people who have Back Pain. Having experienced Back Pain on and off in my life, I have a lot to offer in this area, not only from my extensive training but personal experience as well.

Yoga Therapy is a holistic approach to healing and wellbeing. So please know that we will never treat only your Back Pain and other concerns like sleep, digestion, and anxiety will be addressed as well. We will work with the whole of you body, mind, and spirit.

As well as my Yoga Therapy Training, I also have also done complimentary biomedical studies like Pathophysiology and Integrated Physical Examination. So your initial assessment could include physical examinations like cardiovascular exam, respiratory exam, musculoskeletal exam, or nervous system exam, all in addition to our verbal intake.

How This Works

All sessions are held in my home Yoga space, where I have all the props and equipment we could ever wish for or need.

Once you have had a chance look at my Private Yoga Therapy packages below and are ready to start, you can email me via my contact page.

From there we can set up a time to meet in person for a complimentary consultation. If we decide to work together, you will be able to book your sessions.

All of my offerings are sold in packages of three or five depending on the program. You can see the details of each particular package by clicking the (+) to see the details.

You are the best Yoga instructor I have ever had the joy of practicing with. I am very grateful I did the private session with you, so I will always have you ‘with me’ as I practice at home. I would shout my praises from the rooftops – truly, you changed my life!

Yoga Therapy For Back Pain

Back Pain? I’ve got your back! Experience the benefits of Therapeutic Yoga with a focus on the back, neck, and shoulders. Whether you sit at a desk all day or are generally sore and tight, this is for you. Special attention will be given to stretching and strengthening all the muscles that support the back including the core.

In this practice, we will use a combination of moving shapes (Yang) to increase circulation and build strength and Therapeutic (Yin) the practice of relaxed floor-based shapes using the support of props when needed for three to five minutes at a time. Yin yoga postures gently stretch and rehabilitate the connective tissues that form our joints, allowing us to maintain and restore joint and muscle flexibility. The use of Yoga Therapy Balls may also be introduced to learn self-massage techniques to work out those annoying chronic tight spot and knots.

Breathing exercises, Meditation, and relaxation techniques are used to aid the mind/body in letting go of excess tension and promote healing.

Please note: This program is not suitable for persons with acute injuries or severe Scoliosis.

I thoroughly enjoyed my Private Hands-on Yin Yoga Session with Nyk Danu. Nyk provided a personalized session specific to my needs and former injuries. The gentle session was seamless and I was impressed with the continuity and flow beginning to end. I left feeling refreshed, centred and with increased vitality. I highly recommend Nyk and her private classes, it is clear she is very knowledgeable and an excellent Yoga teacher.
