Chloe Thornton-Hick is our resident clinical psychologist and Tamara Yoga Teacher. Chloe leads our Trauma Informed Yoga program, which research indicates facilitates distress tolerance, body awareness and helps manage affect regulation.
Research indicates yoga therapy, meditation and deep relaxation can have a profound effect on alleviating fear, anxiety, loneliness and depression that may accompany a diagnosis like cancer or heart disease. Decades of scientifically reliable research has shown that lifestyle changes, including those which involve yoga and relaxation techniques, can halt the progression of, and in some cases reverse, the effects of heart disease. Clinical evidence indicates that Yoga reduces stress levels and lowers high blood pressure. Yoga eases chronic pain, aids insomnia and enhances wellbeing.
