Sarah nelsen

Yoga Therapist

Yoga Therapy is a holistic approach to health and well-being. It includes mindful breathing, gentle and supported yoga postures, anatomy education and meditation. Yoga therapists are trained to work with clients experiencing injury, illness, and mental health issues. Rather than diagnose or try to treat medical conditions, yoga therapists use the evidence-based tools and techniques of yoga to cultivate an integration of the body, mind, and spirit. Yoga therapy can be done in small group classes or 1 on 1 sessions.

Sarah is in the final stage of her yoga therapy internship through Ajna Yoga College in Victoria, BC and will be a certified yoga therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists by summer 2019. Sarah is especially skilled at working with the nervous system to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and chronic pain while creating conditions for deep rest. She is especially interested in helping people to hear the voice of their true nature through quiet and contemplative practices.  

Sarah see clients at Breathe on Sunday afternoons and Monday mornings and is available other times by appointment. For more information on Sarah and what a yoga therapy session might look like, see her website at

Yoga Therapy 60 minute 1 on 1 sessions are available on a sliding scale, $25-$50, through Spring 2019.
