I have gained a spiritual insight and trust in the act of moving towards what at first feels difficult or constraining.
Coming into yoga therapy, I had no idea what to expect. In my mind, I thought I'd be helped into some stretches and then guided to breath, but WOW there was so much more here. Not only did Yulia provide a space for the body, she also welcomed me to share some about my mind and emotional processing. I came to yoga therapy with some discomfort in my right hip due to a recent Hernia Surgery repair. And what I found out from our work together was just how much fear and tissue trauma was still left over from this surgery. Through yoga therapy, I witnessed that my intuition was still to move AWAY from the pain, but what my body needed was to remember and understand the sensations I had been avoiding. I now experience more freedom in my right hip, but even deeper I have gained a spiritual insight and trust in the act of moving towards what at first feels difficult or constraining. Yoga therapy is much more than a physical modality, it is a discipline that shows a body, a mind, a spirit to be patient, kind, and loving with itself even in the heart of challenge. Yulia's gentle and present guidance helped me to stay with AND move through waves of contraction and release. Highly recommended
