"I am a surgeon and the ergonomics of my job require a lot of standing, twisting and turning. About 5 years ago I started treatments with Ena Rodriguez. She is exceptionally knowlegeable and skilled. She addressed the nature of my issues and developed a home plan that has kept me pain free. When I do have a flair-up, she continues to provide me skills to deal with my muskulo-skeletal issues at home. I highly recommend seeking her assistance for not only the physical relief, but also the calming, peaceful mental relief yoga therapy provides and missing from most other forms of therapy." -Jerry Collins, Loveland, CO. general surgeon
Treetop Yoga Therapy offers Three Services:
Yoga Therapy Your sessions will include, but are not limited to, classical yoga sequencing with adaptive physical postures (asana), specific breathing exercises (pranayam) and meditation techniqes. Other aspects of yoga therapy are lifestyle coaching, spiritual guidance, applied yoga psychology and yoga philosophy. All practices are discussed first to respect your faith and culture. Ayurveda, a sister science to yoga, types your constitution to determine the best practices to restore balance. Textual references are explained simply and practices are progressive, building on the your feedback, understanding and comfort.
Private Yoga You may wish to simply deepen you practice and have no therapeutic needs. You still love your group classes but wish to know more about yoga and its spiritual components. Originally, yoga was taught individually to provide practices that suit the student's personality, psychological questions, etc. Perhpas you have never even taken a group class; you prefer the personalized experience. Many Treetop clients maintain bi-weekly or quarterly sessions for years to continue progressing with specific modifications and mental focus learned from Treetop sessions. Your private yoga practices are developed to enhance your group studio and home yoga experiences.
Yoga Mentorship Are you in a basic or advanced teacher training? Perhaps you are a provider who wishes to include breath work or new philosophical approaches with your clients or patients. Modern psychology and yogic psychology are distinct in some ways, but very complementary. Personalized coaching can enhance deeper understanding of the texts and specific techniques. As a teacher, what will your methodology be? Are you working on translating your life into your personal voice? Mentorship includes lessons in sanskrit, concepts, stages and styles of meditation, modifications and markers of distress or progress in your yoga students. Mentorship sessions address specific mental and spiritual concepts, including business procedures and professional ethics.
What is iRest® Yoga Nidra? Yoga Nidra is an ancient form of meditation, guided and personally led. iRest, short for Integrative Restoration,was adopted and named such by the US Military in 2006. The researched protocol soothes and heals symptoms of physical and emotional trauma, like those of PTS. The process can also be delivered in a dyad, or a question and answer session. You may lay back or sit up and the result is typically incredibly peaceful. The method is immediately effective and over a few sessions, you will feel deeper insight and emotional resiliency increasing. Ena, one of six iRest teachers in Colorado, facilitates weekly group iRest for InnerBalance Addiction Recovery Center in Loveland, Co as well as her in private sessions.
Treetop Yoga Therapy serves Northern Colorado in Fort Collins, Greeley, Windsor, Loveland, Berthoud, Estes Park, Longmont, Wellington, Boulder, Denver and Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Since our first fire-pit gatherings, the human experience has been a popular discussion. We have expressed our stories through cave drawings, dance and war. We realized purpose through hard won spoils and loss. We have regaled and reflected on our adventures. But, we are not unscathed. After battles and narrow escapes, we shook at the scrape of a tool on a stone or is it a tiger? We experienced fearful visions and performed ceremonies to repel them and other plagues. These rituals, however, did not always work. The concept of healing arises, not only the mending of a broken leg, but also the tending of a wounded mind.
