All yoga is potentially therapeutic and healing. Yoga therapy specifically applies yogic tools – postures/exercises, breath work, meditation techniques, visualization 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.
I will work with you to address your specific goals to optimize your health and well-being. Together we develop a flexible plan that may include: Movement. Breathing techniques. Meditation. Visualization. Journaling. Physical postures. Any combination of tools like these. "A common misconception is that yoga therapy is all about stretching or movement, but, in fact, yoga therapy can be beneficial to people who can’t move at all as well as active individuals. 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 your well-being. A yoga therapy session is tailored to your individual needs." ~ Yoga Therapy.Health
