Once you know what yoga therapy can do for you, there’s no turning back.
Although yoga therapy is a new and emerging profession in the modern world, its roots reach back thousands of years into Vedic teachings and science with the power to transform suffering.
Yoga therapy is instrumental in addressing challenges in modern Western health care by shifting the paradigm from one based on illness and practitioner-oriented care to a paradigm based on wellness and holistic self-care.
My job as a yoga therapist is to understand why my clients have come to see me and what I can do to support them. I am trained to assess clients through listening, questioning, observing, and helping to release the energetic blocks that create the pain. I offer practices to help my clients reduce or manage their symptoms, improve their function, and help them with their attitude in relation to their health conditions. After assessing clients, I establish appropriate goals, develop a practice intervention, and then teach clients to practice that intervention. Examples include helping clients with pain management, fatigue, or sleeplessness.
