What Is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga therapy is not just about the postures and breathing. This integrative approach to therapy heals the body as a whole. You will learn to tune into your natural ability to regain balance and find that perfect alignment of body, mind and spirit. 

At yoga therapy you will practice grounding techniques and try some new experiences such as diaphragmatic breathing, singing, or humming as part of your session.

  • Increasign body awareness. You will be guided you to tune into your physical sensations and identify the areas of tension or discomfort. Your therapist will help you to release those blockages you have in your body. 
  • The intricate connection of our emotional state and body symptoms is helping us to learn to recognize the moments of approaching anxiety and use techniques in time to release the tension and prevent stress to build up. 
  • Help with burnout.
