Yoga Therapy Private Sessions

What is Yoga Therapy?

“Yoga therapy is a self-empowering process, where the care-seeker, with the help of the Yoga therapist, implements a personalized and evolving Yoga practice, that not only addresses the illness in a multi-dimensional manner, but also aims to alleviate his/her suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner. Depending upon the nature of the illness, Yoga therapy can not only be preventative or curative, but also serve a means to manage the illness, or facilitate healing in the person at all levels.”
-TKV Desikachar & Kausthub Desikacha

Description

What you can expect in a Yoga Therapy Session: 

Before your first session, you will fill out a questionnaire with a brief overview of your health history, past yoga experience, goals, challenges, and lifestyle. Each private yoga therapy session will begin with a  “check-in”  in which you observe the body and mind in the present moment (this may be in the form of a body scan meditation). Your specific needs that day determine the flow of the session. Yoga therapy sessions look very different from one client to another. I tailor the session to each client; honoring and supporting each person’s own journey.

Depending on your specific goals and needs, yoga therapy sessions can include any of these tools:

Yoga:  Vinyasa or Hatha Yoga (movement with the breath)
Yin or Restorative Yoga (longer holds and deeper stretches)

Adaptive/Chair yoga

Trauma Informed yoga

Breathwork

Meditation & mindfulness techniques

Functional strength training

Stretch and range of motion exercises

Somatic movement (slow, meditative movement that trains the body to move in a more functional way)

Journaling or self-reflection exercises

Yoga philosophy

Mantra or affirmation

Assistance in creating a home yoga practice

Awareness of holistic nutrition

 

While I am in training, I would love to provide yoga therapy sessions at a reduced rate; please contact me for further information or to schedule your appointment
