Strengthen all aspects of yourself with yoga therapyThe connectedness of the mind, spirit, and body cannot be overstated. Living as though they are separate is to ignore the powerful ways these parts of the human can heal each other. Yoga therapy combines talk therapy with mindful movement and yoga poses.
We can go farther together
I teach yoga because the practices have profoundly shifted me at every level of my being. I wish that kind of transformation for all humans. Customized yoga sessions meet my clients exactly where they are and help them realize new levels of holistic health.
How Yoga Therapy Can Help
There are numerous reasons that adding yoga to therapeutic work improves the results, and a growing body of research supports this.
Mind-Body Connection: Involving the body in the work is one way to intensify the integration of new, healthier mindsets. It stimulates both mental and physical awareness.
Physical Health Benefits: The mind, body, and spirit are not separate aspects but part of the whole human. Strengthening and supporting one area strengthens and supports all areas. As physical fitness improves in areas like strength, flexibility, and balance and ailments and health conditions are targeted with yoga practice, so the mind and spirit are clearer to heal as well.
Offset Medication Side Effects: Many mental health medications have undesirable side effects. When these medications are necessary, yoga therapy may help offset side effects like weight gain and exhaustion.
Movement: For some clients, stillness is peaceful. I have other clients who desire to move their body as they move through painful or heavy emotions, experience breakthroughs, or uncover new understandings. Yoga therapy offers a physical outlet for mental and emotional work.
