Therapeutic Yoga

Therapeutic yoga blends restorative yoga (supported postures), gentle yoga, breath-work, hands-on healing, and guided meditation techniques combined in such a way that it is an excellent choice for those who need something gentle yet effective for bringing the body into balance and reducing stress. Certain therapeutic asanas are used and other postures avoided. We go deeper than average yoga classes, covering the connection between the asanas, physical and mental imbalances and the subtle energy of the chakras. The importance of affirmations are emphasized whether the client wishes to work on a spiritual, psychological or “purely” physical level. Clients are guided to understand how a personal practice of meditation and prayer can be of great assistance. Therapeutic yoga can be defined as applying the techniques of yoga to alleviate specific problems (physical, mental and/or spiritual) coupled with a combination of knowledge (specific to the problem), experience and intuition. Therapeutic yoga has very positive side effects, as ones whole being comes into a healthier state of balance.
