“Yoga Therapy is the adaptation of yoga practices for people with health challenges. Yoga therapists prescribe specific regimens of postures, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques to suit individual needs. Medical research shows that Yoga therapy is among the most effective complementary therapies for several common ailments. The challenges may be an illness, a temporary condition like pregnancy or childbirth, or a chronic condition associated with old age or infirmity.”
-Yoga Biomedical Trust (England) Robin Monro, Ph.D.
“Yoga Therapy is of modern coinage and represents a first effort to integrate traditional yogic concepts and techniques with Western Medical and Psychological knowledge. Whereas traditional yoga is primarily concerned with personal transcendence on the part of “normal” or healthy individual, Yoga therapy aims at holistic treatment of various kinds of psychological or somatic dysfunctions ranging from back problems to emotional distress. Both approaches, however share an understanding of the human being as an integrated body-mind system, which can function optimally only when there is a state of dynamic balance.”
-George Feurstein, Ph.D.
To me, Yoga Therapy is a wellness practice. It takes into account the ayurvedic composition (body type) and seeks to create balance in the human system where imbalances arise. Furthermore, as a therapist, my prescription for each patient is unique to their own needs and abilities. As a practice, Yoga therapy integrates positive psychology with a system of movements and lifestyle choices that help an individual create sustainable joy on a daily basis.
New patients will go through an extensive intake exam to assess the malady or issue for which they are seeking treatment. Depending on the nature of the malady, the treatment time will vary, however, a minimum of three sessions are required for all new patients. Ideally, the patient will be seen three times within a two to three week period. Aside from customized work done during the session, the patient is given a home practice along with lifestyle recommendations to maximize the effects of the treatment.
Yoga therapy is very adept at treating a wide array of issues: Gastro-intestinal disorders, respiratory issues, neurological conditions, reproductive systems, fertility problems, oncology and end of life transition, chronic pain, cardiovascular disorders, and all types of corporal or anatomical maladies.
