yoga therapy while all yoga can feel therapeutic, not all yoga is yoga therapy
effective treatment tailored for your specific needs
Yoga therapy is a healing art (and increasingly researched science) developed from the ancient insights of yoga and Ayurveda. Yoga therapy is most effective when it is tailored for each individual, meeting you where you are, to move toward greater ease and less pain. Even when working with a small therapy group, each individual must be evaluated and considered, and contraindications for the individual made aware.
Yoga therapy is different than physical therapy in that it uses protocols of corrective movement as only one piece of the multi-dimensional experience. There are as many treatment strategies as there are people. Recommended therapies may include awareness practices, mindfulness, breath work, corrective movement, meditation, relaxation, guided visualization, or cleansing practices specific to your condition.
Who is yoga therapy for?
Yoga therapy should be considered for people looking for help with the following conditions:
- Pain relief
- Stress Management
- Balanced mood
- Trauma recovery
- Improved sleep
- Addictive behaviors
- Heart conditions
In addition to relieving physical pain, sessions can shed a new light on what we have the ability to control, giving us more tools to help relieve anxiety, manage stress, and improve mood. This integrative approach helps to achieve sustainable results and lasting transformation.

I have been working with Roxie Sweikar for over a year, and each session brings new insights to my physical and emotional health. She is the consummate professional, truly skilled in her craft. Roxie has an empathic spirit that aids her well. She listens closely to what I say and more importantly, to what is unsaid. Each time we meet, she instinctively knows how to address any issues I have, tailoring my yoga to fit me. I feel extremely blessed to have connected with her.
