Make each moment an occasion
to live deeply happily in peace
- Thich Nhat Hanh
The focus of my work is yoga therapy. In yoga
therapy the tools and techniques of yoga serve to reconnect
each person to themselves, at all levels - from the physical
body to the breath, the energy body, mind, and emotions,
higher wisdom and spirit.
This approach includes a comprehensive lifestyle
program based on the key principles of yoga, and includes:
Healthy routines and lifestyle
Nutrition for the whole person
Exercise and yoga asanas
Yoga hygiene and natural health
Yoga offers a number of tools that help overcome
one of the chief factors undermining the health and well-being
in a modern world : an out of balance stress response system,
yoga therapy sessions aim to restore balance and provide
tools to sustain this.
A private session includes a pre-assessment,
an individualized movement, yoga and exercise program, breathing,
meditation lifestyle recommendations, homework, and follow-up.
The cost of the first session is $90 and follow-up sessions
range from $45 to $70.

"After being discouraged by several failed attempts
at local gyms I asked Ginny to put together a home exercise
program for me. The program, which incorporates Somatics,
strengthening and cardio work, is set up so that I do a different
set of activities each day of the week. After several months
I am still feeling motivated and challenged. Ginny has provided
excellent suggestions and follow-up, and I am starting to
see some real benefits which include having more energy, strength,
and a better sense of my body in space. It has been a very
rewarding experience working with her." - Marilyn
|"I have been doing competitive
ballroom dancing for ten years and it can really
take a physical toll on one's body. My weekly sessions
with Ginny really make a difference out on the dance
floor." - Kay LaPointe
"I will be seventy years old this November and I love
the movement of Somatics. Ginny Jackson's style of teaching
has helped me to awaken my body, and has allowed me to move
more naturally and easily. Her teachings and methods have
helped me to move freely, and have given me more energy throughout
the day. Since she started this wonderful program she has
added other forms of movement re-education, which, like Somatics,
teaches us to perform more efficiently, really helps to keep
everything in balance, and allow me to move fluidly. Ginny
has tied this whole package together with a huge bow. It is
a wonderful, 'anyone can do it' program." - Sandy
"I've had osteopenia for over 15 years. To my surprise
and delight, my last bone scan showed I was normal! I actually
increased my bone density. I don't take prescription drugs
for this, so what have I done differently in the past three
years between bone scans? Only three things: vitamin D supplements,
a walking routine (3 miles/day), and yoga for alignment. I
also added 1/4" to my height, which is clearly due to
stronger muscles supporting my spine thanks to yoga."
