Yoga Therapy

Yoga, with its strong cultural roots in India, can profoundly change the lives of its practitioners. It is a spiritual practice, allowing one to move beyond thoughts and into a deeper state of understanding. This timeless, wordless experience can bring forth insight, wisdom, love and acceptance, providing an opportunity to be freed from suffering. In order to assist with this experience and to help alleviate suffering, yoga therapy provides the environment and relationship necessary for self-awareness and transformation.

Yoga therapy is distinct from Yoga classes

Individuals attend yoga classes to learn the techniques of Asana (posture), Pranayama (breathwork), Dharana (concentration) & Dhyana (meditation), and these techniques can have a substantial effect on physical fitness, disposition, and general health. Instructors, usually certified by Yoga Alliance after completing 200 and 300 hour training courses, offer a wide assortment of styles and atmospheres in yoga classes and this is a great way to motivate people to attempt yoga and stay with regular and community practice.

Individuals can benefit from a personalized practice when dealing with any kind of injury or illness, be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. In this case, it is recommended to seek the help of a yoga therapist certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT). This certification requires 1000+ training hours and practicum experience, as well as a professional code of ethics and scope of practice, so clients can be assured of dependable service.

How does Yoga Therapy bring about positive changes in people’s lives?

The work of a yoga therapist begins with a comprehensive intake. They take into consideration the physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual aspects of their client and focus on providing a personalized approach to their yoga therapy sessions. Through yoga, clients can acquire abilities such as mindfulness and breath work, which can reduce or eliminate pain and distress. The therapist offers assistance to the client and encourages them to become aware of their current condition and to accept any obstructions. Ultimately, the client can gain insight that will modify their situation and they can be empowered by this realization.

Yoga therapists are educated in the areas of recognizing the boundaries of what yoga can do, thus rendering it a supplement to medical and psychological treatments, not a substitute.

What are the advantages?

Make a connection with your body and use it as a source for understanding. Through practice, learn how breath, mind, and body can be integrated to reduce suffering and pain. Seek out and collaborate with a yoga therapist (in-person or online) to create a tailor-made self-care routine. Even if you are already familiar with yourself and your experience, a qualified yoga therapist can give assistance to open up new opportunities for living life differently.

Yoga is transformative. Utilizing yoga therapy can help you to effectively harness that transformative power.
