Second Nature provides individualized therapy and therapeutic programs at the client's residence in Bloomington Indiana, Indianapolis and surrounding areas, ensuring access to therapy for those who find movement challenging, are easily tired due to illness, or require in-home therapy due to injury or disability. We encourage and support our clients as individuals on a life continuum, providing therapy which is safe, beneficial, and appropriate to their current abilities and changing health circumstances. Yoga for women is a source of stability and resilience, supporting wellbeing both at the physical level and emotional level.
We recognize that women are more than a sum of their symptoms or diagnosis. Our clients receive personalized care and a person-centric outlook on health and healing including individualized yoga therapy, comprehensive therapy programs, neurosupportive therapy, specialized bodywork and passive range of motion, nutritional guidance, as well as mentoring and lifestyle therapy.
Second Nature Yoga Therapy is focused on the individual, providing one-on-one therapy to heal or recover, and to support those with lifelong health conditions or in need of long-term therapy. Gentle, therapeutic yoga is a means to create positive change not only in the physical body, but by improving overall quality of life and mental wellbeing. Yoga Therapy is offered in Bloomington Indiana and the Indianapolis area for women living with a neurological condition such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's,
managing chronic pain, undergoing cancer treatment or in recovery, and for therapeutic rehabilitation. The practical, common-sense approach of yoga as a therapy is a cornerstone for lifestyle therapy and mentoring.
We respect and uphold the foundations of Hatha yoga while integrating them into customized yoga therapy programs. As a C-IAYT yoga therapist we provide yoga therapy under the comprehensive standards set by the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
Individualized support, delving into unhelpful lifestyle habits or patterns of thinking and providing a compassionate, open space for discussion and reflection on subjects such as anxiety and stress, disordered eating, neurological conditions, cancer treatment and recovery. Mentoring and lifestyle therapy sessions include yoga therapy which is appropriate for women—respecting their body, health circumstances and life-stages. Yoga for women is sensitive to cultural customs as well as the need for a safe space, offering private yoga therapy sessions in their own home.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to see food sources as natural healing sources, both for the body and mind? Whole Person Nutrition does just that: the whole person is considered, not simply the body. Nutrition consultations range from balancing lifestyle and learning the basics of wholesome, healthful eating, to recognizing and managing emotional or disordered eating. We do not prescribe supplements or follow fad diets—instead, supportive lifestyle therapy options are provided which may include nutritional therapy and guidance.
If one shares one's life with a horse—or any animal—one is privileged. For women with a neurological condition or disability who are seeking a stride in the right direction, both for themselves and their horses, Equine Assisted Therapy can be part of an individualized Comprehensive Therapy Program or Mentoring and Lifestyle Therapy.
This program requires a commitment, emphasizing common sense and compassion to bring about positive change and healing in horse and human. Sessions are provided at the client's location.
Comprehensive Therapy Programs are a long-term option for neurosupportive therapy, therapeutic rehabilitation, palliative care, cancer recovery or while in treatment, and chronic pain management. Rather than offering short-term therapy with little support or follow-up, we provide extended, personalized support over months or years, creating a client relationship that adapts and changes as needs change.
Compassionate, long-term support—improving overall quality of life and bringing awareness to daily activities, living, and perhaps even dying.
Therapeutic Thai Bodywork considers the body as a whole rather than isolating an area for treatment, drawing upon the vast scope of traditional Thai medicine and therapies which include passive range of motion, neuromuscular therapy, acupressure, myofascial release, structural alignment and gentle joint mobilization. Thai bodywork is a versatile form of therapy for those with neurological conditions, partial paralysis, persistent pain, muscle atrophy, and reduced range of motion.
