What can Yoga Therapy address?
Yoga Therapy can be used to address a variety of mental and physical health conditions, including but not limited to: stress, depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction, post-natal depression, back pain, musculoskeletal issues, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer pain relief, autoimmune diseases, IBS, obesity, heart disease, insomnia, arthritis, and osteoporosis.
Please know that most Yoga Therapists have their own specialty. If you are currently experiencing a specific mental or physical health condition that you would like to address through Yoga Therapy, please speak with your Yoga Therapist about your condition in your initial session so that your Yoga Therapist can determine if they are the best fit for your needs.
Initial Yoga Therapy Session
Your initial yoga therapy session may last up to 60 minutes. This session is the first step you take with your Yoga Therapist to identify your primary goal and determine if your chosen Yoga Therapist is a good fit for you and your needs.
Prior to your initial session, you will need to fill out an intake form that provides the Yoga Therapist with information they will need in order to determine the best individual practice for you. It’s important to be as detailed as possible on your intake form, as the information you provide will guide the development of your home practice.
During your initial session, you and your Yoga Therapist will review your medical history, food intake, daily routines, and any concerns that you would like to address through Yoga Therapy. By the end of your first session, your Yoga Therapist will provide you with your home practice. This practice will likely include elements of asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), and meditation. They will provide instructions on how frequently you should be completing the practice and will also schedule a follow-up session with you. Follow-up sessions are typically scheduled 1-2 weeks from the date of your initial session.
Follow-up Yoga Therapy Sessions
During your follow-up yoga therapy sessions, your Yoga Therapist will begin to refine your individual practice. As you begin your practice, you will likely notice some shifts and changes in your mental and physical state. As you begin to see changes, your Yoga Therapist will need to adjust your individual practice according to how you are responding to your practice. Depending on the goal of your Yoga Therapy sessions, you may need between 3 to 5 follow-up sessions with your Yoga Therapist in order to address your goal.
