not familiar with the term?
let's break it down.
San = Connection to your highest self (we call it your WILD self)
Kalpa - the rule above all rules, the truth above all truths
When we put it together the word SanKalpa can be translated to mean
"a vow, a commitment you, your highest/wildest self"
A Note to Adults
When you join THE WILD YOU PROJECT & we work together on transforming your life and /or the life of your child from the inside out.
THE WILD YOU PROJECT uses the science & practice of Yoga as Therapy to help you navigate everyday life & to support you in remembering & reconnecting to the real you,
or as I like to say the WILD YOU!
Using self compassion practices to support you in a journey of self-investigation, self-transformation, & self-realisation.
Yoga Therapy Sessions for you can be done in conjunction with you children or as stand alone sessions.
THIS PROJECT WILL SUPPORT you in achieving your healing goals but requires you to do the work and be committed.
THE WILD YOU PROJECT is a individualised experience.
A 'one fits all' method will never apply to our sessions.
In Yoga Therapy we never assume that if something has worked for someone else that it will be guaranteed to work for you.
Which is why Yoga is also known as slow mind medicine and requires you to be committed to your home practice for your self and your child.
When you begin Yoga Therapy your making a commitment to your self, to give your self the time & space to make the changes you so strongly desire.
Results often take time & remembering this is a process of using self compassion to support you in a journey of self - investigation, self - transformation & self -realisation is key.
The reasons that Adults benefit from Yoga Therapy:
sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, stress, addictions, PTSD, chronic fatigue, back pain, asthma, digestive issues, fertility, menstrual issues, ADHD, Aspergers, cancer, arthritis, pre/post surgery, mental health , pregnancy, child hood Trauma and much much more.

A Note To Tweens & Teens
Privacy of Sessions
A note for tweens/teens (10 years+)
During our private session with tweens & teens (that's you) privacy and trust can be very important so what you say to me privately, stays that way, including your parents & guardians, unless we have your permission to tell them.
This privacy, also called confidentiality, is very important to me because I want you to feel comfortable & have more trust in me and our sessions. So, as a general rule, I will keep the information you share with me in our sessions confidential, unless I have your consent (permission) to share certain information.
However, there are some important exceptions to this rule.
If you are involved in a court case & a formal request (a subpoena) is made which requires me to share your information then I may have to, even without your consent. Also, if I believe that you are at serious risk of harming yourself or another person, or if someone else is harming you, then I must take steps to protect you.
This means that I may have to share what you have told me with other people, such as a parent or guardian, or the relevant authorities (eg. child protection), with or without your consent.
If any of these situations do come up and I feel I must share your information, I will do my best to talk to you about who we need to share the information with, what I need to tell them, and why.
Except for in the situations mentioned above, I will not tell your parents/guardians
specific things you share with me in sessions, unless I have your permission.
However, sometimes it is important for your parent/guardian to know what is going on in your life. In those situations, I will encourage you to tell your parent/guardian and if you choose to
I can help you find the best way to tell them.
Also, depending on your age and family situation, if your parents/guardians ask to meet with me, I may describe problems in general terms, without sharing any specific information that you have told me,
in order to help them know how to be more helpful to you.
I will do my best to talk to you about this first to make sure that you are comfortable with this.
Sometimes it may be helpful for me to talk with other people that may be able to help with your reason for coming to see me, such as your doctor, school counsellor, teacher, or other health professional. If I think that this would be helpful I would first talk to you about what information would be shared and I would only share that information if I have your permission to do so. If a doctor or other professional referred you to us, I would usually write a letter back to that person to give them feedback about the reasons you came to see me and how we are going with improving these things (a summary letter).
If you have any other questions, requests or queries please fell free to call or email me direct.
