Service Description

This session maps the movement patterns, postures and breathing habits your body has habituated to. These patterns can cause or contribute to pain and injury. We'll also dive deep into your history to understand the demands your body has had to face, adapt and react to. This fuller picture provides a meaningful context from which to emerge into a happier, more relaxed you. I'll test your range of motion across multiple joints, assess your gait, gauge tissue texture for locked or inhibited muscles, observe your posture at rest and evaluate how well your core functions with simple tests. After our session, I will spend several hours reviewing your images, videos and notes to create a 4-6 page report outlining my assessment, recommendations, and my yoga therapy approach to each issue found. It will have pictures of your posture (and stills of your gait, if relevant), with lines and arrows showing any opportunities for correction, strengthening or stretch. The digital and printed report is yours to keep. It provides a 'roadmap' to guide our work together, a baseline for where you are now in your journey, and an invaluable reference for discussing your concerns with other health and wellness providers. Clients consistently say that this session is the deepest any provider has heard their story, that they have never before sensed the thread of connection that unite multiple events and injuries, and that for the first time in a long time, they have clarity in how to proceed. This session and generating the report costs $750 of my time. I offer it at the steeply discounted rate of $250 in order to make it accessible to you. Testimonial: As a retired 67 year old woman, I was dealing with aches and pains that seemed to be getting worse. While undergoing medical tests, I came across Sarah, whose approach was less about "come take a yoga class" and more about "let me see how I can help you feel better". We talked for a long time about what was bothering me; she had me do some physical "tests", and ultimately she produced a detailed analysis of my physical condition (5 pages!) that stunned me. I was excited to absorb this information and integrate it into my life. During each visit we have worked on a new aspect of my health, incorporating exercises, positive thinking, and basic physiology into a personal program tailored to my needs. And best of all, she listened to me. She took notes; she asked questions, and she worked very hard to point me in other direct
