Yoga Therapy is a whole-person approach to health and wellbeing that recognizes the interconnectedness of your thoughts, emotions, and physical body to navigate personal healing and change.
Yoga Therapy uses a variety of yoga practices – postures, breathing exercises, meditations, and relaxation techniques to promote awareness and connection to oneself. This sets the foundation for a more grounded and balanced internal system where healing begins.
What happens in a yoga therapy appointment?
First you will go through a yoga therapy assessment, which considers your physical body (posture, movement, injuries, mental & emotional health, etc.) alongside your breathing style, emotional/mental health, and personal history and goals. From this information certain yoga postures, breathing exercises, meditations, and relaxation exercises will be selected.
All the yoga practices experienced in a yoga therapy session are gentle, adaptable, and appropriate for beginners. The setting is kept very peaceful and quiet to help you connect inwardly and ground you in the experience of embodied mindfulness .
How does yoga therapy help?
Yoga Therapy bridges the gap between yoga and many other health professions as it allows you the healing benefits of yoga within a safe, therapeutic context promoting connection of the whole-self, and provides you with the opportunity to reconnect with your innate wisdom as a source of guidance and healing.
Yoga therapy helps to reduce stress and regulate the nervous system making it particularly helpful for managing and reducing symptoms for anxiety/depression, PTSD, and various illnesses and injuries such as chronic pain, arthritis, auto-immune disorders, heart conditions, and cancer.
