What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the teachings and practices of Yoga. ~International Association of Yoga Therapists
Yoga Therapy uses traditional Yoga practices, including movement, breath work, and mindfulness to cultivate a sense of well-being within the client.
Why Yoga Therapy?
Unlike a traditional yoga class, this is not a vinyasa based practice, though movement may be prescribed. Yoga Therapy is taught in private individual sessions, or small group sessions with a specific health need in mind. Through intake and inquiry, a personalized practice will be used to treat the specific health needs of each individual, or small group.
Who Benefits from Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy can be used to treat a number of conditions including depression or anxiety, grief and stress related issues. Experiences with pain, skeletal deviations and illness rehab, such as cancer, cardiac and respiratory dis-ease can be improved through Yoga Therapy. As can women’s health experience during prenatal, postnatal and the menopause transition period. Done in a safe setting, Yoga Therapy can enhance the client’s quality of life.
