Yoga Therapy Classes
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
Medical research shows that Yoga Therapy is among the most effective complementary therapies for several common aliment such as anxiety, depression, weight problems, back ache, shoulder pain, headache, indigestion, insomnia, diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure etc.
The focus of Yoga Therapy is understanding of the vital integration of mind, body, and spirit to heal the whole person.
One way to think of Yoga Therapy is as a replacement therapy, that is, replacing old bad
habits with better new ones.
As such, Yoga Therapy encompasses not only the body and the movements we do on the yoga mat, but how we live and treat others and ourselves off the mat, which is ultimately what matters for a healthy and whole life.
WHO DO I RECOMMEND THESE CLASSES TO?
PEOPLE WITH INJURIES/ACHES - The 1-2-1 care of Yoga Therapy makes it possible to tailor the classes to protect the injured area and to provide therapy, thus regenerating and healing it.
Let's take the example of back pain. In a regular Yoga class you would have all 6 movements of the spine (forward bending, backward bending, stretching, contracting, lateral movement and twist). People with lower back pain should avoid forward bending or only practice modified versions. Going to a regular class with several forward bends will not necessarily heal the condition but aggravate it. On the other hand the core should be strengthened, to protect the lower back. Getting to know our condition, poses that help in healing it, and the safe way to practice poses will empower us to go to any class, use any form of exercise, housework etc.
In the long run keeping our back pain free and eventually regain strength and health.
PEOPLE WITH MEDICAL CONDITIONS - Yoga is proven to be very effective to manage or even alleviate certain conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, respiratory conditions, obesity to name a few.
