What is a ‘Yoga Therapy' Session? 

Yoga techniques (postures, breathing exercises, relaxation/mediation practices) are customized for specific health challenges. Regardless of your health issue, a yoga practice can be developed to help manage symptoms, restore balance, increase vitality, and improve attitude.   

Why book a Yoga Therapy Session?

  • Yoga Therapy protocols and interventions have been developed for many conditions, including: addiction, anxiety, arthritis, asthma, autoimmune disorders, back pain, cancer, depression, diabetes, eating disorders, fatigue, fibromyalgia, heart disease, high blood pressure, hormonal issues, insomnia, joint pain, menopause, migraines, neurological issues, obesity, smoking, stress - this is just a partial list.
  • Yoga Therapy is designed to complement (not compete with) conventional medical approaches.
  • Yoga Therapy empowers you to participate in your own healing at all levels (body, mind, and spirit). It is an ongoing, personal commitment to health, happiness, and well-being.
  • A Yoga Therapist will develop a customized practice for your health issue. Ask questions and build a confident foundation that will support your continued practice. Learn how established yoga practitioners make yoga practice a daily priority.
