What Is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga therapy is a process dedicated to treating and healing the whole person, which is sometimes missed in western treatments.

Through the skillful application of 1:1 Yoga Therapy, we begin to recognize how to live and maintain optimal health.

A 1:1 Yoga Therapy program is developed collaboratively between the yoga therapist and their client which may include the 8 limbs of yoga, hatha yoga consisting of, but not limited to, the physical practices including postures, breathing practices, meditation, imagery, chanting, personal study, healthy nutrition, obtaining and adequate rest.

Yoga therapy is not a replacement for western medicine, but instead a powerful supplement that helps one live a balanced life.

Yoga therapy not only promotes optimal healing and recovery but can help you move from a life of simply existing to thriving. Through the process of yoga therapy, we learn to recognize our potential and how to address the obstacles which stand in the way of living our best life.
