About Therapeutic Yoga
Yvonne Werkmann has been helping people get out of pain since 2003. Her understanding of anatomy and yoga can help you experience this natural form of pain relief now.
Therapeutic yoga is a personalized approach to reduce pain, improve strength and flexibility and develop a sense of calm. Focusing on your goals we will create a custom program of movements, relaxation and breathing techniques. You will receive guidelines to continue your progress at home. Let us help you progress from where you are, to where you dream of being. If you have pain, let us help you relieve it. If you have restricted movement, let us help you free it up. When you are pain free, you will move forward, getting your body working well, so you can do what you love to do.

I force myself, kicking and screaming, to your yoga class and I leave it, peaceful.
I crawl to class, fractured and disjointed, and leave it, soothed.
I dance into the room, feeling good, and I leave, gleaming.
Always I leave better than I arrived. Ninety minutes in your focused, intuitive presence givingattention to my breath and to my body while you attend to the details of alignment -- seen andunseen -- always benefits my body, mind AND soul. Thank you.

Are you ready to get stronger? Use breath, meditation and physical poses to increase mobility, increase strength and reduce pain. At the end you will feel taller, more peaceful and ready to take on the world.
Thursdays 10:15 – 11:45 am
You will find the Yamas and Niyamas course to be a bridge between yoga's ethical guidelines, your physical practise, and your everyday life. It will take you on a journey of awareness in which you will discover more about yourself than you could ever imagine. I loved the way it was broken down into chapters, with lots of time to reflect and practise without feeling rushed. To say it will change your life sounds trite but the truth is, it will.
Workshops for Your Organization or Group
Yoga for a Healthy Back
Do you experience back pain? Do you wish you had more mobility or strength through your back? Are you limited by your back in the activities you love to do? Learn how your back works and why it is so susceptible to injury. Learn simple movements to increase your back strength and suppleness. Leave feeling more ease through your spine.
Finding Inner Strength: Yoga for Your Core
Join me for a fun afternoon of exploring core strength. What is it, really? How do we best access this inner power? Can we really stop doing sit-ups and crunches? We’ll have a look at our anatomy and play with various poses that get into those inner workings. Be prepared to have a good sweat, and a good laugh.
Therapeutic Yoga for Shoulders and Hips
How are your shoulders and hips feeling? If you are looking to increase your overall mobility and strength, getting those shoulders and hips feeling better is a sure way to start. If you took Shoulder’s and Hips last year and want to take things a bit further, if you have taken classes or private sessions from me and want to learn a bit more, this will be a great afternoon. If you have never worked with me before, you can prepare for this workshop by taking a private class with me.
Getting Your Feet on the Ground: Therapeutic Yoga as a Path to Strength
When the challenges of life take over, we often find ourselves living in our heads, following the monkey mind of thought and worry and spiraling up higher and higher. Connecting with our legs helps get us out of our minds and back into our bodies, building the strength and fortitude necessary to take another step forward.
