I had a gradual release of tension and better understanding of how past trauma has contributed to my physical health. The releasing of tension in my hips was a totally different focus than traditional PTs and OTs had identified since my pain manifested in my shoulders and neck.

What is Yoga Therapy?

Although all yoga is potentially therapeutic and healing, yoga therapy is the specific application of yogic tools - postures/exercises, breathwork, meditation techniques, and more - to address an individual's physical, mental, and emotional needs. Many people first learn about yoga through its physical practices, but a common misconception is that the discipline is all about stretching or movement. In fact, yoga therapy can help people who can't move at all, as well as active individuals!

The yogic model of health is unique because it addresses every aspect of life rather than considering each body part of system separately.

Yoga therapy is a safe way of working with the natural capacity of your body and mind to optimize well-being. This approach can help with a range of concerns:

  • Pain, including low-back pain, arthritis, PMS, and other types of chronic pain such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome

  • Neurologic issues and complications of stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disease, and traumatic brain injury (TBI)

  • Mental health, including concerns like anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, insomnia, and others

  • Major illness like diabetes, cancer, and heart disease

  • Healthy aging, including osteoporosis and fall prevention

Yoga therapy can also support people who are dealing with stress, and those who simply want to increase their well-being and overall health.
