WHAT IS YOGA THERAPY
Yoga therapy is lifestyle medicine. Though we do use classic alignment principles for physical rehabilitation, there is so much more to yoga therapy. We apply yoga philosophy and concepts to get to the root of an issue. We help our clients face their deepest thoughts and behaviors to create lasting, meaningful change. RocCity Yoga Therapy applies a whole-person approach with every client.

WHAT CONDITIONS DOES IT ADDRESS?
Low back pain is the most frequent reason we meet clients for the first time. Most clients have a preference for forward bending or backward bending that can be applied in a therapeutic way.
Whether you are experiencing Hip, Knee, or Foot pain, the whole leg is probably involved. We’ll get to the root of the issue whether that means strengthening, stretching, or environmental modifications like changing the type of shoe you wear.
Neck and Shoulder pain are more and more common due to the increasing technology demands of our lives. The key here is altering your position more often and probably some gentle strengthening. Let us create a personalized program for you.
Stress and Anxiety may seem like one of the more obvious aspects of modern life that yoga may help, but I bet you’ll be surprised to find out how it works. Let’s dig deep.
Individuals with Depression understand better than anyone that low energy can be debilitating. We at RocCity Yoga feel strongly that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Yoga offers many tools to help us find it.
Kay first discovered yoga in 2002 in the dance department of the University of Rochester. She completed her first 200hr teacher training in 2006 with Aimee Senise Conners and Mitchel Blier, which steeped her deeply in the Anusara Yoga tradition. She went on to get her doctorate in physical therapy from Nazareth College, and offers yoga based physical therapy interventions in the Rochester area. She completed her C-IAYT yoga therapy certification with The YogaLife Institute in Philadelphia, PA.
Kay reminds her students to find wonder in the world and to be active in ways that inspire them. Kay’s classes aim to spark curiosity and playfulness in her students’ minds and bodies. Each class is an invitation for students to bring ideas and goals to explore and share.
