What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga therapy can reduce, manage, or eliminate symptoms while improving function, though is not intended as a cure for disease. I will work with you to co-create and implement a therapeutic plan appropriate to your needs, goals, life circumstances, and which fosters self-inquiry and curiosity for your physical, mental, emotional, energetic, and spiritual healing. As its core, Yoga therapy puts you at the center of your own well-being.
While there may be similarities and some overlap, Yoga therapy not a private yoga class, nor is it psychotherapy nor physical therapy. It is its own distinct, highly specialized field of study that integrates evidence-based modern western science, ancient Ayurvedic science, and time-tested Yogic science.
Yoga therapy can be an ideal adjunct therapy to your other existing medical and therapeutic interventions, as it is a fully tailored, holistic approach that considers you as a whole person, rather than treating a symptom, complaint, or diagnosis.
