Feel better this Spring: Yoga Therapy

What comes to mind when you hear the word “yoga?” Group classes? Stretching? Comfy pants? A combination of those things? Yep – definitely ways we understand yoga. But there’s more. Introducing yoga therapy.

While all yoga is potentially therapeutic, yoga therapy is a more focused approach. It combines many parts of yoga (breathing techniques, poses, meditation, and more) to address your specific needs. The reality is, most of us walk around with a hyped up nervous system and that causes us all sorts of issues. The body is both a complex and very simple combination of lots of moving parts. Any one thing affects many others. Rather than address a single part of the body, yoga therapy allows us to view ourselves as what we really are – a beautiful blend of mind, body and spirit. Yoga therapy can help us feel more balanced from the inside out. It’s a lovely feeling and, yes, it is possible for you.

The body’s natural state is joy. It wants to feel good and with yoga therapy you can learn how to tap into your innate ability to heal yourself at many levels. In my role as a yoga therapist, I have the privilege of working with folks looking for relief from a wide range of conditions including

  • Anxiety, depression and PTSD
  • Ongoing/chronic physical pain
  • Recovery from injury
  • Stress
  • Support during long-term illness
  • Things we’ve decided are “just the way it is” – sleep issues, irregular digestion, aches and pains…

Don’t live with “this is just how it is.” Let’s explore options for getting you on your path to freedom from what’s in the way of you living your best life.
