Trauma informed Yoga therapy contributes to the healing of those impacted by traumatic life events. The therapeutic focus is the development of healthy, body-based self-regulation strategies to empower clients to live connected, resilient & safely embodied lives.

Trauma informed Yoga therapy has been proven effective in conjunction with traditional psychiatry and psychotherapy to address a wide range of conditions from chronic pain and stress to mental illness and addiction. I have been working with clients since 2007 and will design a practice to meet and grow with your specific needs. All sessions include education, assessment and an exploration of various yoga techniques with an emphasis on choice and safety.

Ways to work with me:

Online or in-person – 1st session (90 min) $125.00
Online or in-person – Subsequent sessions (60 min) $115.00
Online or in-person – Sliding scale, please contact me.

I have a 48 hour cancellation policy. This gives me a chance to contact the people who may have wanted a session but couldn’t get in. I charge the full fee for a missed appointment, or $58 for an appointment cancelled with less than 48 hours’ notice. For late arrivals, sessions will end at the scheduled time, and the full fee will be charged.

Upon booking a session you will receive an intake email which includes the logistics for the sessions and intake questions. This includes inquiring into and assessing your health history, current treatments and medications, physical, mental and emotional condition, and your health and wellness goals.

After each session, you will be provided with an illustrated, customized home practice should you wish to develop a home practice. You may choose to record the practice portion of our session to assist you at home. Each practice is designed to suit your specific needs, capabilities, goals, and life circumstances. We will revise and update your personal practice on an ongoing basis. The tools and insights you gain during our sessions will support you in feeling more grounded, connected and at ease in your body and relationships.

I recommend that clients continue their personal health routine as suggested by their doctor or medical professional and/or seek out the support of a qualified mental health professional while accessing my services.

To book a session online or in-person or to arrange an initial phone consultation to determine if my services are best suited to your needs contact me.

“Nicole Marcia is profoundly courageous, compassionate and present in her skill as a yoga therapist and teacher. She has been instrumental in assisting me to rise up from my devastation, pick my heart up off the ground and move forward into the sanctuary my yoga practice has become. Her capacity to hold space is unparalleled. In her presence I am safe; as she listens my voice is heard; as I am witnessed by her, I am seen and I can breathe. Through our work together I have found a peace that endures. Nicole is a brilliant light in our world. She anchors the best of what trauma-informed care really is; and the vision of what such care could become. I am deeply grateful.”  – A.C.
