What is Yoga Therapy? As a yoga therapist, I focus on your needs and goals. Together we work towards finding ways to bring better ease and balance into your life using the tools of yoga, asana (postures), mediation, pranayama (breathwork), ayurveda (diet and lifestyle) and philosophy.
Who is Yoga Therapy good for? Anyone looking for more ease in their mind, body and spirit. Some of the life challenges we can address in a yoga therapy session are chronic pain or illness, or acute injury such as recovering from a motor vehicle accident, grief, anxiety and depression. Often people seek out yoga therapy after not having the desired results from other treatments.
How is a Yoga Therapy session different from a Yoga Private? A privates yoga class, focus mostly on asana (yoga postures) where as yoga therapy seeks to clarify what might be the root cause of your imbalance, and provides tools to empower you to make the necessary changes to bring yourself back into balance.
What does a session look like? In our first session, we will review your intake form and identify your most important goals. Then we will begin to build a home practice for you. Your home practice may include changes to your diet or lifestyle, adding in mediation, movement or breathwork. In our following sessions we will discuss how the practice went, and make any changes or additions to keep you moving forward towards better balance and ease in your life. Yoga therapy is a collaborative process.
How many sessions should I do? The introductory package is 4 sessions. Included in the four sessions is a 2 hour intake, and 3 one hour follow up sessions. Yoga therapy is a gentle yet powerful process. It takes time to uncover what your mind, body, and spirit need in order to find ease. I recommend that you do at least 4 weekly sessions before determining if yoga therapy is good fit for you.
How much does it cost? The introductory package is $350 for all four sessions. Additional session are $85 per session or you can buy a package of 4 sessions for $300. If you would like to do yoga therapy and cannot afford it at this time, please send me an email from my About Page.
What are your qualifications? I am a RYT-500 hour teacher (Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher), meaning I have over 500 hours of yoga training. In addition, I am currently enrolled in a yoga therapy training program that will culminate in an additional 1000 hours of training with Essential Yoga Therapy. I have reached the point in my yoga therapy training that I am seeing clients, with the supervision of my mentors.
