Yoga & Yoga Therapy is for Everyone

Deborah Charnes, founder and owner of The Yoga Counsel, is an experienced Yoga Therapist along with numerous other certifications, which come together to make her a truly remarkable holistic coach.

Yoga therapy is the perfect antidote to the hectic, on-the-go lifestyle that most of us experience. Meditation and deep breathing have proven physical benefits, while asanas or what westerners refer to as “yoga” is often recommended by doctors. As a result, The Namaste Counsel customizes sessions and workshops based on modern medicine and the ancient teachings.

Yoga and Yoga Therapy is truly for EVERYONE:

  • Men and women.  Athletes.  Students. Execs. Kids. Seniors.
  • Folks recovering from back injuries, or struggling with arthritis.
  • Insomnia.
  • Diabetes.
  • Stress.
  • PTSD.
  • GI issues.
  • Pregnant/Post-partum.

These are just a sampling of the areas of focus at The Namaste Counsel.
