What is Yoga Therapy? Yoga therapy is an effective complement to traditional medicine and therapy for treating chronic conditions such as:
back pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain and other physical complaints
anxiety and depression
Yoga therapy is not a substitute for medical care, psychiatric care, or prescribed pharmaceuticals, but it can be a powerful complement to traditional care. For complex conditions that haven’t resolved after PT, specialists’ care, and meds, yoga therapy can offer a new approach.
Yoga therapy is not appropriate for acute conditions.
How does it work? Yoga therapists work one-on-one with clients using a variety of tools, such as physical poses, breath work and meditation to help them learn how to find healing and balance in their lives.
Therapy is conducted in private, one-hour sessions.
Practices are tailored to your specific needs.
Do I need yoga experience? You do not need to have practiced yoga to benefit from yoga therapy. A yoga therapy program can be designed for you regardless of any physical limitations. What can I expect?
Every person is different and therapy is tailored to your needs.
First session is a full intake and initial assessment.
Second session may include more assement and an introduction of yoga practices.
Following sessions include practicing, adjusting, and adding or subtracting practices.
You may feel improvements quickly, but as with any lifestyle change, real benefits result from consistent practice over time.
