Jools with master teachers DV Sridhar and Radha Sridhar as part of her Yoga Therapist training in Chennai, India

Anxiety and Emotions

Take on anxiety from within! Learn how to systematically relax and restore energy, respond to stress in healthy ways, improve sleep habits, and foster self-compassion.

Jools' degree in depth psychology, specialized training, six years of clinical psychotherapy practice, and personal experience with anxiety and panic disorder enables her to expertly and sensitively co-create a deep sense of safety, confidence, and resilience, and cultivate moment-to-moment attention and perspective with her students.

Jools teaches with keen sensitivity to past trauma, using scientifically backed practices of physical movement (asana), breath (pranayama), and meditation / mindfulness approaches in this work.

Ongoing weekly yoga therapy is recommended for best results.
Private therapy is ideal.

Fitness / Rehabilitation

Gain strength and flexibility, improve overall health and lifestyle choices.

Improve movement and attitude after an injury or illness. Yoga therapy's wholistic approach helps physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Ongoing weekly yoga therapy is recommended for best results.
Private therapy is ideal.

Mobility challenges

Jools has been working with students with MS for the last 2 years; students report that their quality of life improves markedly and that they become better at handling intermittent setbacks. We work together to build on strengths, improve habits and lifestyle choices, feel safer in our surroundings, and maintain focus and motivation.

PLEASE NOTE: We use gentle movement, very gradually introduced breath control, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques. Students are encouraged to consult with their doctor or other health care professionals about participation before beginning yoga therapy. In some cases, and at Jools' discretion, a doctor's permission note may be requested.

Ongoing weekly yoga therapy is recommended for best results.
Private therapy is ideal. Semi-private (2 only) will be considered.
