YOGA THERAPY FOR MENTAL HEALTH
Ann overcame domestic violence and PTSD, then became a yoga therapist over a decade ago and a master certified life coach. Now she shares how people suffering can have relief from their symptoms using a variety of self-help tools and practices including breathwork, mindfulness, and yoga therapy.
She is a contributing author to "Defining Moments: Stories of Survival: Real People Solving Real Problems (The Trauma After the Trauma)," now on sale at Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats.
She helps everyone from the anxious person in a meeting to someone suffering the aftereffects of trauma with short term solutions and long-term relief practices. Her techniques do not have the person relive the trauma and work both at the conscious and subconscious levels.
Anxiety, trauma, and various mental health issues are common today and ways to relieve the symptoms are very needed in addition to medical professionals.
Kundalini Yoga Therapy for Mental Health (PTSD, anxiety, stress, etc.): Movement and meditation specifically directed at mental health issues, using therapies initially developed over 3,000 years ago. If you have problems with, for example, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), acute stress disorder, general stress management, re-occurring nightmares, letting go of your past, anxiety, depression, grief, etc., I can offer Kundalini yoga practices that will help to manage these issues to improve your mental well-being. My practice does not cover issues with anger management, minors, or treatment of pregnant women, nor is it a substitute for psychotherapy or psychiatric/medical treatment.
Group online or individual 8-week course.
Yoga should be considered as a complementary therapy or alternative method for medical therapy in the treatment of stress, anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders as it has been shown to create a greater sense of well-being, increase feelings of relaxation, improve self-confidence and body image.

I have overcome physical and emotional trauma and now help others do the same, allowing them to have relief from trauma symptoms including mental health issues and stress.
"I believe that all people can find relief from their trauma/anxiety/PTSD/mental health issues and can find themselves stronger on the other side of it."
