What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga therapy is a holistic approach that fosters healing through movement, breath-work and stress relieving practices. It uses techniques from traditional yoga, Indian medicine and modern/western science-based approaches to assess, treat, and help move individuals towards optimal physical and mental alignment, health and overall well-being. Essentially, it serves as a compliment to western medicine and psychology and each session is tailored to your specific and overall needs needs.
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.
