Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy is an emerging craft, requiring advanced training and study of the healing aspects of yoga. Yoga therapists are trained to think about the body holistically and are uniquely positioned to make connections other modalities may miss. With their holistic understanding of the individual, therapists tailor practices to meet the client’s specific needs and objectives using a myriad of ancient principles and practices of yoga.

What makes yoga therapy holistic?

Yoga therapy takes into consideration all aspects of self: the physical body, the energy body, the mental and emotional body, the conscious and unconscious mind, the heart and its connection to all. Yoga therapists are trained in practices that facilitate healing and balance within all of these aspects or layers.

What can I expect in a yoga therapy session?

One-to-one yoga therapy sessions begin with an intake questionnaire designed to support the client and therapist to establish objectives and best practices designed specifically for the individual. Once the initial discovery is complete, the sessions entail a specific combination of therapeutic yoga practices designed to move the practitioner towards healing and harmony. Clients are often given “take home” practices to support their progress and objectives.

What conditions is yoga therapy designed to support?

Yoga therapy is an effective treatment for physical and psychological conditions, and for anyone seeking complementary or alternatives to Western treatments. Some of the conditions research has proven yoga therapy to be beneficial for are:

  • chronic stress
  • chronic back pain
  • arthritis
  • high blood pressure
  • diabetes
  • cancer recovery
  • cardiac care
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • insomnia
  • and more

How many sessions will it take to experience results?

That depends. While yoga is the antidote to many of our modern disorders, it is not a magic bullet. How much you get out of it depends on how much you put into it. Yoga is a practice of accumulation. Five sessions is usually the minimum commitment recommended to begin to see desired results. Depending on the objective and starting point, it can take longer.

What is my investment?

A one-to-one yoga therapy session is $125. A package of five yoga therapy sessions is $500.
