Private Yoga Sessions for One on One Attention

Medical research is proving that yoga can be an extremely helpful modality for improving physical, mental and spiritual health.  But not everyone can be or wants to be in a class environment. A one on one session with one of our qualified instructors may be the perfect solution!

            Private yoga sessions are great for:

  • Those wanting detailed yoga instruction for alignment and safety in poses.
  • One on one attention making the yoga specific to the persons needs and conditions.
  • For those with limiting conditions that make a yoga class too challenging.
  • Chronic pain, anxiety and depression.
  • Coming back from an injury or surgery.
  • Helping children with anxiety and concentration.

What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga Therapy is a healing practice that treats the body holistically, embracing the idea of both physical and psychological well-being. Yoga therapy is offered one-on-one in a private setting with a trained and qualified yoga instructor. Yoga therapists are certified yoga teachers with additional training in therapeutic yoga techniques.

           
DOES IT WORK?

It’s been validated in research to be a helpful tool in the management of addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), high blood pressure, scoliosis, and insomnia. It is particularly appropriate for many chronic conditions that are aggravated by stress such as anxiety, depression and chronic pain that persists despite conventional medical treatment.

WHO CAN DO IT?

Yoga Therapy is for anyone who desires to use yoga as a way to improve the quality of his or her life physically, mentally or spiritually. It is not a substitute for medical care but rather a therapeutic approach that supports or enhances many conventional medical treatments. It can be applied to every person of any age, regardless of his or her condition or limitations.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN A SESSION?

During the initial consultation an assessment is taken to identify health problems, assess lifestyle and physical capability, discuss goals of the client and the course of treatment. Most Yoga Therapy Sessions include breathing exercises, instruction of physical postures (asana), relaxation and meditation. The yoga techniques chosen are specific to the needs of the client.

EXAMPLES

A typical session could be something as simple as learning to perform yoga poses safely with modifications for limitations or receiving specific poses for back pain. The frequency of sessions varies depending on the needs of the client. Homework may also be given since an important element for any yoga practice is to find a way to incorporate it into daily life. Yoga therapists provide instructions on how to use what has been learned in treatment at home. Schedule a yoga therapy session today and begin the journey towards a healthier stress free life!
