Yoga Therapy is a holistic and integrative approach to provide a complementary process of Health Care. At the Yoga Therapy sessions each person is thought individually and with the focus on dealing with the cause rather than the symptoms of the problems. Medical Yoga Therapy does not stop with just curing physical illness but extends holistic healing to those seeking relief from any problem – be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Yoga Therapy is based on the laws of the nature so it is totally harmless and natural way of healing.
Yoga Therapy can restore the physical (musculoskeletal), physiological (digestion, respiration, cardiovascular, endocrine, and immune), and mental/emotional systems. Apart from reducing pain and suffering it can also contribute to positive stress coping strategies.
Our mission is to heal people through yoga.
YOU ARE REQUESTED TO ATTEND A MINIMUM OF FOUR CLASSES,
TO ENABLE US TO HELP YOU BETTER.
Yoga heals or hurts?
There are so many articles and so much information about how yoga benefits our health. Even some doctors recommend yoga practice to their patents. I have client who was referred by lawyer to try yoga to manage their stress levels. There are no doubts about how yoga benefits our health. Just changing your breathing patterns your body gets more oxygen so in return you feel more relaxed and you even sleep better( my students stated that even after first yoga class, they were able to sleep better!) , at the same time you feel more energized all while improving your immune systems and your metabolism. By practicing physical yoga postures you can increase your flexibility, strength, help release body pains, and loose weight. Meditation also helps to clear your mind.
But sometimes we hear stories about accidents that happened in yoga class, or if you look online you can easily find plenty of information about how yoga practice is not safe, or not beneficial.
Yoga is like a sharp knife the sharper knife is the more delicate pieces you can cut, but if you don’t know how to use it you can hurt yourself.
If you have been hurt in a yoga class I would put the question about incompetence of your yoga instructor. There is not a secret that some “yoga instructors” watched yoga DVDs and now they are teaching people. In my four years of teaching the yoga experience I have had no accidents that hurt my students, but I meet a lot of people who were injured in a yoga class by a incompetent ” yoga instructor”.
The other reason why yoga class doesn’t feel beneficial to you is because you have special body limitations, issues, pains, and problems. But tell me: when you go to the doctor does he work with a group of people, or only with you? The same goes with yoga if you are healthy and seeking just general stretching, relaxation or to get more energized group yoga lead by a professional experienced yoga instructor will work for you perfectly. But if you have pains, limitations in your body or breathing problems you need special attention, a special program designed just for your needs. This is called YOGA THERAPY.
What is Yoga Therapy?
“ Yoga Therapy is a holistic and integrative approach to provide a complementary process of Health Care on a one to one basis. Since yoga is a holistic discipline — teaching that the mind, body, and spirit are connected — Yoga Therapy can often go beyond the results that are possible with physical therapy. Yoga Therapy based on the sound principles of the legendary Yoga Master T Krishnamacharya, who is widely believed to be the architect of modern day Yoga, and especially Yoga Therapy.
A wide range of tools which include Asana (Physical posture) , Pranayama (Breathing), Meditation (Mind practice) and other means prescribed by Yoga Therapist will be utilized to design unique practices for every medical Yoga Therapy Student. The practice is developed considering the nature of the problem, the capacity of the individual and other vital parameters such as age, occupation, responsibilities in life, energy level etc.
With Yoga Therapy you can manage high blood pressure, cope with the effects of cancer treatments, diabetes, asthma, allergy, gastric disorders, depression or anxiety and many other illnesses. Lately it’s become especially popular for musculoskeletal issues like lower and upper back pain, sciatica, and shoulder, neck and hip pain.
