Yoga Therapy

The Practice of Yoga is more than 5000 years old and goes beyond a system of exercise and poses that may appear to be pretzel like or standing on your head. Yoga as an ancient tradition, has studied every aspect of human life, it is a way of life that incorporates a mindful awareness of the mind, body, spirit practices and transformation through;

  • Body movement

  • Breath work

  • Nutrition

  • Meditation

  • Relaxation

  • Moral and Ethical studies

  • Spirituality

Balance in one's life is one of the many fruits of a Yoga practice.  A regular yoga practice, gentle or rigorous, promotes a sense of well-being and wholeness.

Yoga Therapy works with the whole person and their health from a psychological, physiological and spiritual perspective, assessing emotional wellbeing, physical conditioning, ailments, behavioral patterns, relationships, environment and the integration of these conditions.

After the evaluation, the yoga therapist and client work together to develop a wellness plan to promote positive change and the best possible health outcomes.  Integration of the ancient practice of Yoga Therapy as a complimentary practice to Western medicine has made great strides through science and studies.
