What is Holistic Yoga Therapy?

Yoga is holistic and healing in that it offers a wide variety of tools that promote health, healing, and transformation. Tools of yoga include, but are not limited to: postures, breathing techniques, meditation, gestures, use of sound, self-inquiry. A yoga therapist utilizes these tools to create unique practices to meet the needs and goals of a client. These practices are refined over time so that they continually meet a client where they are and encourage a client in the direction they want to grow.

A yoga therapist works with a client one-on-one to holistically address wellness. I am a yoga therapist, as well as mental health therapist. While I work with a variety of individuals of different ages and conditions, I specialize in helping people with depression, anxiety, various traumas, and coping with depression related to chronic medical and physical conditions.

Yoga therapists use the tools and practices of yoga to empower clients toward improved health and well-being through the use of postures, breathing practices, meditation, and lifestyle. Yoga therapists understand the multidimensional nature of the individual and work from the premise that the physical, energy, emotional, and spiritual levels are fully integrated and inter-related. In yoga therapy the ancient wisdom, tools, and techniques of yoga combined with traditional and contemporary best practices are adapted to each individual’s unique situation and health challenge with the goal of helping clients improve, maintain and optimize health.

Understanding that the mental and emotional states of individuals influence overall health, clients may also receive guidance to help shift attitude and perspective in relationship to life's challenges. Each individual is unique, and should be encouraged to progress at his/her own pace and comfort level.  As overall health and self-awareness improves, the ability to live a more balanced life is enhanced.

Yoga therapy can be used to address musculoskeletal issues such as lower or upper back pain, sciatica, headaches, carpel tunnel, and major joint pain.  Yoga practices can also be used to manage high blood pressure, arthritis, emotional challenges (such as depression, trauma, grief, and anxiety), fibromyalgia, and neurological disorders.
