While all yoga can feel therapeutic, not all yoga is yoga therapy.
Yoga therapy is a healing art and increasingly researched science developed from the ancient insights of yoga integrated into mainstream health and wellness programs.
Yoga therapy teaches people who are suffering from pain, illness, or disease how to move to a place of ease.
A yoga therapist has been trained with knowledge of diseases, pain management, trauma, addiction, structural injuries, and Ayurvedic lifestyle. Accumulating over 1000 hours of training along with clinical supervision, a yoga therapist works alongside other health professionals to meet individuals who are suffering physically and/or emotionally to bring about healing.
Recommended therapies may include awareness practices, mindfulness, breath work, corrective movement, meditation, relaxation, guided visualization, or cleansing practices specific to your condition.
This integrative approach helps to achieve sustainable results and lasting transformation.
Individual yoga therapy services are offered at Physicians HolisticHealth Alliance (PHA) by appointment on Monday’s and Wednesday’s.
