Yoga Therapy

What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga therapy integrates traditional yogic knowledge and techniques with that of the Western medicine. Yoga therapy is a holistic treatment of various physiological and psychological conditions ranging from chronic illness and injury to anxiety and depression. Both approaches share an understanding of the human being as an integrated body-mind system, which functions optimally when there is a state of dynamic balance and wholeness.

What Can Yoga Therapy Do For Me?

As your yoga therapist, I offer a personalized program of traditional yogic and modern Western techniques, to address your specific concerns and needs.  The goal is to alleviate discomfort and suffering while stimulating healing in a non-invasive and supportive manner.  Medical research shows that yoga therapy is among the most effective complementary therapies.  It can reduce challenging symptoms, increase the body’s natural energy and vitality and stimulate the body’s natural healing capacities.

What Happens in a Yoga Therapy Session?

In a yoga therapy session, we explore postures, breathing exercises, and mindfulness techniques. As your yoga therapist, I tailor a wide range of mind/body practices to meet your specific health needs and objectives.
This is a dynamic process that is adapted to meet the evolving needs of the individual through their unique process of healing.

Do I Have To Have Previous Yoga Experience?

All yogic methods are easily accessible and adapted to each individual whether they are experienced or a beginner.  No prior yoga experience needed to gain all the benefits of yoga therapy.

What Do I Wear To a Yoga Therapy Session?

Special yoga attire is not needed for your yoga therapy session.  Comfortable clothing is all that is recommended.
