Augusta is my favorite Yoga Therapist. She is very knowledgeable and extremely educated. Augusta has shown me the light about true yoga and poses, as I have never be able to do what she has shown me, correctly before. I thought I had a good understanding of yoga, but I have found out that I was doing yoga incorrectly until Augusta taught me iyengar yoga and her personalized Kayabala Therapeutic Yoga treatment. Augusta paid attention to my needs, weaknesses, and strengths of my body, and she custom tailored our appointment sessions to maximize my performance and positive results. Augusta is also a very good and nice person who actually wants to help people, and she defintelty helped me. I will continue to work with her and I endorse her skill-sets and philosophies. Thanks Again!
Augusta is the first yoga instructor I’ve had that ensures participants are performing practices with correct alignment. I appreciate her knowledge and encouragement.
Since suffering a knee injury in a car accident in 2015, I have only been able to get relief from medication. Augusta introduced me to yoga therapy, and the pain has subsided substantially since I started working with her. She is caring and a very knowledgeable therapist. I highly recommend her. Thank you for teaching me how to feel good again Augusta!!

My Philosophy of Care

I have been always been driven by a desire to help. This can be seen in my time as an attorney, advocating for those who cannot, and in my 20 years in social services, I have always had the dream to support improvement in people’s lives and help them achieve their goals of being happy and living life to the fullest. I am a believer in health and well-being, as well as cultivating a partnership that develops a healthy body and a healthy mind. When I was introduced to Yoga and its philosophy, it was a catalyst for a change in my understanding of health and harmony. I believe that the healing of mind and body results in an understanding of who we are, a whole body, mind and spirit. Yoga is exactly that, a culmination of the three pillars of the human self. Yoga therapy is described by the International Association as "the professional, application of the principles and practices of yoga to promote health and well-being within a therapeutic relationship that includes personalized assessment, goal setting, lifestyle management, and yoga practices for individuals or small groups”. I have seen its power firsthand and that is why I became a yoga therapist.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

...you are teaching classical Iyengar yoga principles of alignment which are so sadly missing in much of yoga teaching today but which are essential to maximizing benefit while keeping the student safe. Also, as you guide your students through the poses you do it in a warm and compassionate manner which I have often found lacking in some Iyengar yoga teachers I have had experience with in the past.
I just feel so lucky to have found a kindred soul.

My Inspiration

The essence of Yoga Therapy is to support clients in reducing pain and living well with pain. Yoga therapy is as defined by the International Association as "the professional, application of the principles and practices of yoga to promote health and well-being within a therapeutic relationship that includes personalized assessment, goal setting, lifestyle management, and yoga practices for individuals or small groups"
The principles of Alignments that promote healing and health in yoga, are applied to healing of injuries and overcome pain, the principles of join mind, spirit and body are applied to the practitioner mental wellbeing. The objective is to increase self esteem, self confidence, self trust, and the relaxation and peace to promote healing physically and mentally. Then, building strength and confidence in your self and in your body. Yoga Therapy succeeds by recognizing that any aspect of one's existence can be affected though any other aspect. Yoga Therapist can match techniques and practices with changes in someone's physiology, awareness, regulation and resilience. The practice brings a more inclusive perspective than simply matching symptoms with prescribed intervention. Yoga therapy is a long tremor support that is ideal to integrate into existing pain care programs. It is a unique path to recovery. Within yoga Therapy, I am not restrained to only using asana as mantras and breathing exercises among other techniques, can be combined. You have to try to experience the power of the practice.

Augusta is an amazing instructor. She works tirelessly but is so encouraging. She doesn't make you feel discouraged if you can't do a certain yoga move she makes you feel you can move on and feel accomplished after her class. I recommend her highly.
