"Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being
through the application of the teachings and practices of yoga.”
International Association of Yoga Therapists Educational Standards for Yoga Therapists.
As an empowering holistic approach to health, yoga therapy provides specific practices to help us reduce or eliminate symptoms that cause pain, limitations or emotional drain so that we can increase our potential for ease of body and mind and experience greater energy and vitality. As a yoga therapist, I work with people suffering from burnout, anxiety, fatigue and mild to moderate depression.
To benefit from yoga therapy we need two things:
1) A yoga therapist to provide the knowledge to know what, when and how to incorporate specific practices; and
2) The discipline/inspiration for practice.
I work with people who have limited mobility, those who are new to yoga, athletes, and with experienced yoga students and teachers.
1) We identify your starting point and goal;
2) I provide the recommended practices; they could include specific asana sequences, meditations, breathing techniques, nutrition, journaling, aromatherapy or lifestyle practices;
3) We review and practice to ensure integration and understanding of the practices; and
4) Once this has been established, we determine how often you will incorporate the practices and when to continue with the yoga therapy sessions.
The recommendations are always realistic in terms of time management and they are gradually integrated for optimal results.
How many sessions will be required?
It depends on your starting point and goal. Some come twice and then practice on their own. Others come weekly and some come every two or three weeks for 6 to 24 weeks.
Whether it's the demands of daily living, an illness, injury, work issues, change or...With yoga therapy, we gain greater self-knowledge and develop habits/routines/rituals to move towards our aspirations. Tired and stressed is not our natural state. We have the power to feel energized and calm.
