Ayurveda (Integrative Medicine)

Ayurveda originated in India about 5000 years ago, the same time as yoga, and is considered to be the oldest form of healthcare. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word which means “science of life.”

When yoga and Ayurveda are employed together they create balance in the mind, body and spirit. Yoga does this through the physical and meditative practice; Ayurveda does this by taking into consideration external forces that one cannot control: changes in seasons, aging, changes in the universe, etc.

Private Ayurveda is provided by Melanie MacDonald as a visit at blue door yoga & wellness.

Massage

Private massage is provided by Sandra Zamaroni or Melanie Macdonald.  Sandra specializes in Intuitive Massage and was trained in Reflexology.  Melanie combines her many healing modalities to give you a very personalized massage experience.

Reiki

Reiki is provided by Reiki Master, Dawn Justice.
Reiki is a system of healing that is administered by a light touch of the hands to different parts of the body, to promote the movement of the internal life force energy. Some say it feels like a wonderful glowing sensation, that aids in relaxation, calming the whole nervous system. There are no side effects, can be used in conjunction with any other form of therapy, and promotes the wellbeing of the whole individual.

Therapeutic Yoga

Therapeutic yoga is provided by Kim Pia.

Therapeutic yoga is an excellent adjunct to physical therapy or your regular yoga/movement practice. You may come to therapeutic yoga because of nagging pain or discomfort, a new or old injury, to prepare for surgery or strengthen afterward. Whatever your reason for seeking individual attention, Kim will create the space for you to cultivate greater body awareness. From this place of wisdom in your body, you will learn the tools to find ease long term. Sessions will focus on how to work towards greater function by increasing strength, flexibility, and awareness.
In many western modalities, you are told to do an exercise to fix your symptoms; therapeutic yoga teaches you how to move with mindfulness and breath and to listen to the signals from your body. If you already have exercises given to you by a surgeon, physical therapist, or other movement professional, Kim can help you do them mindfully, or work them into a fun flow that makes the exercises more enjoyable.

Private & Corporate Yoga

Treat yourself (or a group of friends) to a Private Yoga Session.  Private Yoga gives you a unique opportunity to delve deeper into your practice, whether it is a pose, philosophy, pranayama (breath work), recovering from surgery/injury or just luxuriating in the undivided attention of your teacher.

Providing on-site health and wellness classes to employees results in happier, healthier employees.  Studies have shown that healthier, happier employees are more productive at work and miss fewer days due to illness.  Plus, lunchtime yoga is the perfect pick-me-up to sideline the dreaded afternoon slump.

All of the blue door teachers are available for Private Sessions
