MISSION & VISION
Red Monkey Therapeutics supports empowered education, growth, and optimal health.
Through a range of holistic offerings, Ivy creates a safe container for clients to explore and unwind the connection between physical sensations and underlying thoughts, emotions, and habits.
When we each take personal steps toward better self-awareness and wellbeing,
we are then better able to engage in authentic connection and meaningful interaction with others.
Ultimately, this connection and contribution creates a better world for us all.
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

This is Red Monkey.
Ivy's daughter Odessa was born in 2016, the year of the Fire Monkey according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar, a sign that represents a clever mind, resilience and flexibility.
Red Monkey was a gift from her Aunt Nora and Uncle Tony, and he has rarely left her side.
When she faces a new food or an unfamiliar situation, Red Monkey sets an example by trying it first.
Red Monkey symbolizes the qualities Ivy hopes to share with her clients:
a faithful, knowledgeable companion with whom to take on life's challenges together
- with an open, curious mind and playful, adventurous spirit.

* Restorative Slow Flow *
Slow Flow offers therapeutic movements designed to bring balance to the body and slow the mind.
We will hold poses a bit longer and transition mindfully, allowing the nervous system to relax as we focus on the breath and sensations in the body. The meditative pace creates space for curiosity and deep acceptance of “all that is present'' in each moment.
Drawing from Restorative & Yin practices, this class is suitable for beginners, pregnant practitioners, individuals recovering from injuries, and seasoned yogis seeking to unwind in a relaxed, mindful manner.
