Yoga therapy is the specific application of yogic tools – postures, breathing, meditation techniques, and more – to address an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional needs. Yoga therapists have in-depth training to help them assess and keep their clients safe. They work with you to address your specific goals while considering any limitations you might be experiencing.
The yogic model of health is unique because it addresses every aspect of life rather than considering each body part or system separately. Yoga therapy is a safe way of working with the natural capacity of your body and mind to optimize well-being. A general public yoga class can certainly ease everyday aches, pains, and mood complaints. But a yoga therapy session, whether one-to-one or in a small group, goes much further because it is tailored to the individual.
Whether in person or online, the commitment to yoga therapy requires consistency and repetition. As with anything in life, the more you put into your commitments, the greater the results. Results can be and often are felt immediately, but for them to be life-changing, there must be consistency and repetition. As your yoga therapist, I will partner with you to created achievable goals and sustainable practices. To do so requires 5 sessions minimum. Session duration and frequency will be determined based on individual needs and health goals.
