A gentle, subtle yet transformative approach that promotes self motivated healing through a daily practice.
This daily practice is meticulously prescribed by a yoga therapist in collaboration with the individual. A daily practice is specifically designed to suit all the needs of the client physically and mentally. The practice may have subtle strengthening and stretching movements, based in yoga, for any injuries an individual may have or on just maintaining a healthy body through an evidence based lense. This is similar to how a physio may prescribe some exercises for rehabilitation. The difference is that Yoga Therapy aims to treat each person as a whole being so it doesn’t focus on healing the symptoms it focuses on healing the cause. The practice supports our mental health through different movements, sounds, meditations, and breath practices from ancient yogic teachings. A practice could be done at any time of the day (but usually the same time each day) and can range from 5 - 30 minutes depending on how much time the client has.
Anyone! From an experienced yoga practitioner to someone who has never even done yoga or exercised before. Yoga Therapy is for everyone - it is accessible and inclusive and all stems from an individualized perspective creating the daily practice that YOU need for YOU.
