What is Yoga therapy:
Today, the ancient wisdom becomes easier for science and medical profession to understand and accept the powerful benefit it brings to the individual.
“Yoga therapy is that facet of the ancient science of Yoga that focuses on health and wellness at all levels of the person: physical, psychological, and spiritual. Yoga therapy focuses on the path of Yoga as a healing journey that brings balance to the body and mind through an experiential understanding of the primary intention of Yoga: awakening of Spirit, our essential nature.” - Joseph LePage, M.A. Integrative Yoga Therapy (U.S.A.)
What happens in a yoga therapy session?
Yoga Therapy is a deeply heart centered approach to guide you through ancient yoga wisdom techniques that can awaken your true core being. It is more than yoga poses and breath work, it is a process to educate and understand the human being as an integrated body, mind, and spirit.Within each session you explore self regulation techniques which are effective and profoundly liberating when combating the debilitating effects of anxiety.
You will learn breath work, meditation and gentle movement techniques that help to break the psychological, biochemical, and physical cycles that keep anxiety in your life, and to eventually overcome anxiety.
Mindfulness is a practice, to respond rather than react, & to be aware of each thought...
Yoga Therapy is a blend of traditional Yoga practices, Ayurveda, Alternative Medicine, and modern medical science. You will experience aromatherapy, sound healing and movement. The more you know about anxiety and how to defeat it, the more empowered you become to drive your own self-healing journey.
Not all methods work for everyone, but there is one or more methods that will work for all. The combination of the methods that you will explore are very powerful. A presentation of what happens in your mind and body while experiencing anxiety, and tools to “turn off” the fight or flight response, and “turn on” the relaxation response will be taught in the first session. A Meditation technique called Yoga Nidra (Yogic sleep) is offered at the end of all sessions to experience a deeper level of self-awareness and relaxation
