“Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and wellbeing through the application of the teachings and practices of yoga.
The goals of yoga therapy include eliminating, reducing, or managing symptoms that cause suffering; improving function; helping to prevent the occurrence or re-occurrence of underlying causes of illness; and moving toward improved health and wellbeing. Yoga therapy also helps clients/students change their relationship to and identification with their condition.”
“Yoga is therapeutic when it is systematic and holistic. It is transformational as it harmonizes body, mind and spirit.”
Current research shows that practicing yoga benefits a wide range of conditions and illnesses including, but not limited to, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes mellitus, cancer, low-back pain, anxiety and depression. Research has shown that yoga reduces stress, lowers heart rate and blood pressure, improves sleep, elevates mood, alleviates pain, improves strength and flexibility, and improves overall quality of life.
Yoga is holistic and includes practices for the body, mind and spirit. The scope of yoga therapy practice includes:
Before your session you will be asked to complete a Total Health Assessment and set your goals for yoga therapy. During your first 1.5 hour visit your yoga therapist will review the assessment, your health information, and your goals. Additional assessments may also be done the first session, including posture, Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale (DSS), sleep, nutrition, and pain. You will then be given a set of of practices designed best meet your goals. Short daily practices have been shown to be more effective than longer periods a few times a week for fostering new healthy habits. You and your therapist will determine the amount of time you can comfortably commit, usually a minimum of 15 minutes once or twice a day.
During additional sessions progress towards goals and your experience with the practice will be reviewed. Modifications and additions will be suggested as appropriate.
