What you can expect from a yoga therapy session?
Yoga therapy is most successful when therapist and client work as a team and together embrace the possibility of transformation. Each therapy session begins with a short explanation of what will be worked on in the session and why so that client can gain a better understanding of the intention behind the practice and continue to apply the principles outside of the therapy session. The therapist will then lead the client through a series of movements coordinated with the breath, helping the client in improving: quality of breathing, joint mobility, circulation, immune function, and to help improve overall body, mind and system functioning. Each session will end with a short relaxation/integration period, clients may be assigned “homework” that they can apply to their daily lives to continue improving between sessions and help maintain progress.
“The word ‘Yoga’ is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘yuj’ which means to bind, join, attach and yoke, to direct and concentrate the attention […]. Yoga, therefore, is the art which brings an incoherent and scattered mind to a reflective and coherent state. It is the communion of the human soul with Divinity.”
