Adapting and applying the tools of yoga to create a personalized yoga practice which serves an individual’s unique health condition.
A key benefit of yoga therapy is that Yoga Therapists draw on the study of both Eastern and Western health models. Your therapist will conduct a complete assessment to determine the right tools for you - whatever condition you are in and whatever situation you are dealing with. In this way, the practice grows with you along the course of your life.
Yoga Therapy does not seek to cure an illness. Rather, it helps you manage symptoms while fostering a calm, clear mindset and an open heart to ride the inevitable tides of life.
We can't always control what happens, but we can control how we respond. Yoga Therapy gives us a toolbox for that response.
THE YOGA TOOLBOX INCLUDES:
Postures: to address structural conditions
Breath: to optimize energy, enhance the nervous system, and unplug from "fight or flight"
Relaxation: to turn on the body's natural healing mechanism
Meditation: to develop a calmer outlook, which enhances immunity and longevity
Chanting: to stimulate cognitive and emotional centers of the brain, linking us to our inner wisdom and higher purpose.
Lifestyle habits: to identify how our choices affect our health.
Yoga Therapy can help in so many different situations because it deals with the person, not the condition.
This is the promise of a living tradition, handed down for millennia to those who seek to reconnect to their inner self.
Your first session includes an intake and assessment, followed by a take-home practice video and worksheet. We schedule follow-up sessions based on your needs.
