What To Expect In Your First Appointment

After scheduling your initial intake session you will receive an intake form to complete before meeting. This form prepares you and your Yoga Therapist for your first session with information about your health history, lifestyle, concerns and goals for 1:1 Yoga Therapy.

During your intake session:

  • begin to develop a trusted relationship with your Yoga Therapist,
  • have space to voice your challenges and desires, and
  • explore techniques that efficiently guide toward more sustainable health.

Your therapist will then design your individualized practice for daily movement toward recovery and growth.

What Is Therapeutic Yoga

Yoga Therapy (or therapeutic Yoga) is a process dedicated to the recovery and growth of your whole being. As a form of somatic therapy, it is highly complementary to any Western medical care you may receive. Through the lens of how Yoga views and interacts with the human system, you will become more skilled in recovering and maintaining health of mind, heart, and body.

A personalized Yoga Therapy program is developed collaboratively between you and your Yoga Therapist. Your personal practice is drawn from the 8 limbs of Yoga and may include postures, breathing techniques, healing meditation, imagery, chanting, personal study, or lifestyle recommendations. As Yoga is interested in your holistic wellbeing, your therapeutic practice can support your somatic, physiological, cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and spiritual dimensions.

A C-IAYT (Certified-International Association of Yoga Therapist) has a minimum of 1000 hours of training in the field of Yoga Therapy. This includes the minimum 200 hours of training required to be a yoga teacher plus an additional 800 hours of training that may include: therapeutically oriented philosophy, kinesiology, psychology, biomedicine, anatomy, pathophysiology, the adaptation of Yoga tools, and a clinical practicum.

Siara Morrow

Why Yoga Therapy? I have felt and observed how essential it is to speak the ugly, dark aspects of reality, be deeply heard, and receive tailored practices for recovery, maintenance, and growth. My main priority is how the tools of Yoga revitalize your mind and heart (emotional, behavioral, and spiritual dimensions). Your experience is real. I am here for whatever is up, or down, for you.

Experiencing what I teach is my foundation. I have been in ongoing Yoga Therapy since 2020 where my therapist designs my daily practice. I am also continually enrolled in programs by advanced teachers to refine and deepen my understanding of what I share with you. What you receive is from a thoroughly tested tradition, not from my solo imagination.

Ongoing studies: principles and application of Yoga Therapy, principles and application of meditation, Patañjali’s Yogasūtra (philosophy), Bhagavad Gītā (dharma, devotion).
