Therapeutic yoga

Although we may often think of yoga as a discipline that is taught in a group environment, it can also be used individually as a therapeutic modality to support rehabilitation and wellness. Yoga differs from standard physical exercise in that it is often executed with the profound inwardly directed awareness or focus. It also tends to be performed at a slower pace with emphasis on quality, rather than quantity of movement. Yoga is typically process focused, rather than goal oriented, and it emphasizes listening to your body and learning to pay attention to your feelings. Scientific studies reveal that practicing yoga not only increases flexibility, strength and stamina, but that it helps reduce stress and tension as well. Research shows that yoga can also be helpful for many medical conditions. See our services page for more information.
