Yoga therapy is a valuable tool to learn how to reconnect with your body! Through mindfulness, relaxation and breathing techniques, we will explore reintegrating and intertwining the mind and body.
What is therapeutic yoga?
Yoga therapy is typically conducted one-on-one or in small groups. Often, a session more closely resembles an appointment with a physical therapist or rehabilitation specialist than it does a typical yoga class. What sets this healing modality apart from others is the focus on linking intuitive movement to deep, rhythmic breathing. Another difference is the emphasis on relaxation. During our session together, we may spend an entire practice consist only of breath awareness and relaxation. The reason behind this is, we spend most of our time racing from place to place, or from thought to thought. Through mindfulness, relaxation and breath work, you will gain skills to slow down and be present. By being present you will learn how to create an open mind, and through this experience, increase your awareness. Awareness is the key to acceptance. Acceptance of struggle, adversity or success is just one benefit to yoga therapy.
