"Yoga therapy is the ancient science of yoga that focuses on health and wellness at all levels of the person: physical, psychological and spiritual. Yoga therapy focuses on the path of yoga as a healing journey that brings balance to the body and mind through an experiential understanding of the primary intention of Yoga: awakening of Spirit, our essential nature." Joseph LePage, M.A., Integrative Yoga Therapy (U.S.A.)
As a Yoga Therapist, we develop a full set of skills to assist an individual or group with finding the correcxt "prescription" to heal from within and find balance . The client takes an active role in their own healing. Often, yoga therapy clients may not be able to get the attention they need in a regular yoga class.
The medicine we use are yogic tools and holistic healing modalities from physical postures (asanas), breathwork (pranayama) and relaxation techniques (meditation), to reiki, massage and more. My goal is to help you feel your very best and restore balance in the body at all levels. High amounts of stress affect the body turning on the "fight or flight" response.
Many chronic health conditions are caused by the stress hormone called cortisol. Symptoms include insomnia, obesity, arthritis, cardiac illnesses, neurological conditions, arthritis, autoimmune disorders, depression and anxiety. "Gesture becomes hanit becomes posture" We often do not align with our highest good- misaligning our bodies creates stress on the muscles & joints creating chronic aches and pains. Spiritual needs may go unattended as well, In a fast paced, confusing and ever changing world, life may become chaotic and unpleasant. Yoga therapy can help you regain connection.
