Hatha Yoga Therapy for Physical Health and Yoga Nidra for Mental Health
While Yoga Therapy is relatively new to the western world, it has been at the forefront of traditional healing across India for centuries.
In essence, Yoga Therapy is the art of utilizing the properties of asana, pranayama, and Yoga Nidra (consciousness creation) to facilitate healing and evolution.
Whether you’re suffering through injuries, chronic pain, disease, anxiety or depression Yoga Therapy can help.
It all begins with the individual. No two people are the same, so no two individuals with the same ailment will present symptoms in the same way. In that vein, no two Therapeutic Yoga treatments are the same.
‘Listening is my secret weapon.'
When clients come to me, I connect with them as the unique human that they are. Through questions, observations, and appropriate adjustments, I’ll determine the best course of action for each individual.
I know and understand that when an injury or illness has been present for some time, it begins to break down mental defenses, leaving one anxious and often depressed. It’s my understanding of the unique interaction between physical and psychological symptoms in the individual that shapes the practice.
To that end, though your treatment may include physical exercises (asana and kriya) which can resemble physical therapy, as a Yoga Therapist I’ll go far beyond this practical experience. We’ll integrate breathing and mindfulness (Yoga Nidra) techniques that can be practiced later on your own. This places the role of healer back into the hands of the individual, exactly where it should be.
It’s healing by way of strengthening and leveraging the mind-body connection… healing from the inside out. The body really is an amazing self-rejuvenating machine, learn how to turn it on and do it’s thing as nature intended

I injured my lower back in 2014. After unsuccessful doctor
visits and acupuncture, I decided to try Knekoh’s yoga therapy sessions. She rehabilitated my back since then and after 2 years of discomfort/pain, I am feeling healthy and well again. She is thorough, insightful, and knowledgeable about the body and her practice. My work schedule fluctuates, but she always makes time and is accommodating. Knekoh has changed my life in so many ways. I have and will continue to refer her to family and friends!
Two years ago, I had hip surgery to repair a torn gluteus medius
muscle and tendon. After the surgery and intensive physical therapy, I still had severe pain and difficulty walking. After working with Knekoh on specific Yoga exercises, I have improved muscle strength; my walking has improved as has my energy level. Thanks to Knekoh, I am now able to do so much more.”
Knekoh… guided me through a Yoga pose, but unlike
anything I'd ever experienced, She kept coaching me through the breathing while her hand worked on my back. It was as if we were in the pose together. I felt this wave of relief and was absolutely stunned. The pain was GONE. I had tears in my eyes. I felt guided, protected, empowered and finally healed. Thank you Knekoh. You have an incredible, undeniable gift. And most importantly: you share it with such beautiful grace. Thank You! Namaste.
