Through the ancient art of yoga, individualized Yoga Therapy facilitates healing. The yoga therapist safely guides the client in body-based cultivation of mindfulness, self-awareness, and inner peace. In the present moment and stillness of a pose, one gains mastery over physical and emotional challenges. The issues that often lie resistant in the tissues are liberated to help foster empowerment in mind, body and spirit. Clients learn techniques on the mat, then carry those techniques off the mat for a life lived more fully in the moment.
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 a “normal” or healthy individual, Yoga therapy aims at the 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.
