Yoga therapy is an aspect of the ancient tradition of yoga which adapts yoga practice to the individual for healing purposes. Yoga therapy uses practices such as postures, breathing, meditation, arts, and sound, to integrate body, mind and spirit, as well as heal illness and emotional imbalance. Yoga therapy is also preventative, helping to maintain an optimum state of health for life by bringing awareness.
Is Yoga Therapy for me?
Often the pain we experience in our bodies and minds has roots in habitual reactions to stress and circumstances. Our nervous systems tend to react in predictable patterns. Yoga Therapy can help change these patterns with mindfulness to our body and deep unwinding.
Psychology and Yoga

The use of witnessing and dialogue reconnects the client to wholeness, inviting presence through the postures or through direct inquiry and counseling.
