Yoga Therapy

Are you tired, stressed, confused?  Does your body ache?  Do you have limitations or just lacking in energy?  Do you have an on-going injury that just won’t heal.

Yoga Therapy uses the tools of yoga to achieve specific outcomes according to the needs of the individual.  It is the holistic process of empowering individuals to progress towards improved health and well-being through the applications of the teachings and practices of Yoga.   Through a regimen of breathing exercises, relaxation techniques and yoga postures suited to individual needs, Yoga Therapy works with the individual on a one-to-one basis to prescribe practices attuned to the physical, emotional and physiological requirements to bring about renewed health and well-being.

As a self-empowering process, Yoga Therapy can lead to progressive healing in all areas of your life.

Below are 5 reasons to work with a Yoga Therapist as elucidated by Brandt Passalacqua, an experienced Yoga Therapist:

  1. Head To Toe Thinking
    For physical concerns, Yoga Therapists are trained to think about the whole body. In a world full of never-ending specialization, Yoga Therapists are uniquely positioned to see connections that others may miss. In practice, this often involves strengthening or stretching structures seemingly unrelated to one another. The result is a whole body approach to healing that often has amazing results.
  2. Time
    Yoga therapy sessions are often an hour, sometimes more. Unlike healing professions that are constrained to short sessions because of insurance and other factors, Yoga Therapists have the time needed to take in your full story. It makes us well positioned to see connections that others simply don’t have the time to make. Sometimes we not only need practices to help heal us, we also need someone to help us connect the dots in our daily life. Are we getting enough sleep? Do we need to re-think our medications? Are we unknowingly creating stressors that can be cut out? A Yoga Therapist is able to take in your entire picture and help you make beneficial shifts that others often miss.
  3. Goal
    The goal of the Yoga Therapist is to educate people so that they may heal themselves. Working with a Yoga Therapist should leave a client feeling empowered to self assess as part of their healing process. Independence from the Yoga Therapist is the goal.
  4. Commitment To Relationship
    Yoga is relationship. Yoga Therapists understand that relationship is a key part of any healing process. This mostly applies to our relationship with ourselves, but it also applies to the therapist/client relationship. A Yoga Therapist is a friend on the path entrusted with a certain role and a good therapist is committed to a relationship that benefits all involved. When working with a Yoga Therapist, a client should always feel on equal ground within the confines of healthy boundaries.
  5. One Stop Shopping
    Yoga therapy is interested in all aspects of the self: the physical body, pranic body, mental states and emotions, the unconscious workings of the mind, the heart and its connection to all. Yoga Therapists are trained in practices to facilitate healing connection and balance within all of these parts. For many, this holistic approach can alleviate suffering across the spectrum of their experience. This may eliminate or reduce the need to obtain help from different individuals which is often important since the cost in both money and time can be overwhelming, especially when working with chronic conditions.

There are of course, many more reasons to work with a Yoga Therapist! May this short list inspire you to continue your healing with yoga therapy.  I look forward to being of service.
