Yoga Therapy

Discover your potential and improve your health with yoga-based movement, techniques and principles, adapted to your needs.

Yoga therapy is a movement and breathing based therapy aimed at improving self-care and well-being through yoga postures, functional movement practices, healthy breathing and mindfulness practices.

Complementary to conventional medicine, yoga therapy helps individuals manage and improve a wide range physical, mental and spiritual health issues. It puts the individual first and promotes: self-acceptance, movement of body and breathing, mental focus and mindfulness.

In most cases, Yoga therapists are Yoga teachers who have followed specialized training that allows them to work 1-on-1 with clients who suffer from injuries or have been diagnosed with certain medical pathologies.

Yoga therapists are trained to:

  • Evaluate and assess client’s general physical/mental capacity and needs.
  • Approach the client’s needs in a natural and holistic manner, addressing body, mind and breathing in an attempt to address overall well-being and the source of the symptoms.
  • Highlight client’s potential and help them expand their abilities (i.e: physical and mental strength and mobility).
  • Create wellness strategies (or action plans). Plans often include a series of postures and exercises that the client is guided through during the 1-on-1 sessions, as well as practical postures, breathing exercises and/or lifestyle habits that can be practiced as homework.
  • To work in collaboration with other heath care providers and physicians, and provide clients with complimentary practices.

Although some may be highly intuitive, yoga therapists are NOT trained (or legally permitted) to:

  • Diagnose medical pathologies.
  • Prescribe medications or medical protocols.

After several sessions, yoga therapy clients often report feeling more accepting of themselves. They feel more aware of how their body functions and better aligned and equipped to manage or welcome what life has to offer them.
