Yoga Therapy is a holistic approach to health and healing. In a yoga therapy session you will learn exercises and approaches specific to the condition you are dealing with but you will also experience yourself as a whole person beyond the condition. Yoga therapy will help you to remember and celebrate your whole self which helps to create a richer environment for healing and feeling better.
Your Yoga Therapy Session may include:
- Postural Assessment and suggestions/exercises for mitigating postural habits so that you feel greater
freedom of movement and get out of pain.
- Physical Assessment to determine body misalignments, asymmetries and and challenges along with exercises so you
feel more balanced and move more freely.
- Strengthening exercises to help you
feel confident and steady in your body.
- Flexibility exercises to help you gain movement and grace.
- Relaxation, breathing and meditation to help you cope better with stress and learn how to soothe yourself in challenging times.
- Hands on support and energy work to support your body in healing and to calm your nervous system.
Yoga Therapy can be a wonderful adjunct to your health care plan and support to rehabilitation from a wide variety of conditions.
Clients often seek out yoga therapy as a support when dealing with chronic illness, pain or postural challenges. Yoga therapy can also be a good alternative for continuing rehabilitation after you have completed or as you are transitioning from the care with a P.T., chiropractor or other health care practitioner.
