Anke Cacciola was introduced to Yoga by her mother more then 30 years ago and she fell in love with the gentleness and intelligence of Hatha Yoga. A student of many healing techniques, meditation and movement therapies, Anke teaches an integrative Hatha Yoga style focusing on proper alignment and inner awareness.
She strives to help her students to develop a strong body and a healthy happy mind.
Therapeutic Yoga was created out of her experience as a Massage Therapist and body worker. During the years of her business as a body worker, she sent hundreds of patients home with exercises to better their posture and overall health. Out of conversations with her clients, she obtained that practicing exercises at home does not have the same feeling as practicing in class. The presence and voice of a teacher, the support of a group environment and being guided through every step of practice are difficult to replace. Therapeutic yoga starts with the intent to know something about ourselves and our current state of health.
Students are guided to observe themselves before starting with asanas (postures). The intention the student chooses, will determine the direction of practice.
Asanas are customized to the individual students needs, to work towards flexibility, strength, endurance and relaxation. During class the student also gains the knowledge of the many benefits of yoga.
Some of the benefits are:
increases energy levels
promotes a better supply of blood and oxygen to the muscles
increases flexibility, strength and endurance
assists in decreasing unnecessary neuromuscular tension
promotes general body relaxation and reduces stress
relaxes muscle joint stiffness associated with the aging process
improves mental alertness
promotes weight loss and reshapes the body
