During this session, I focus on listening to your concerns, asking questions to help clarify the aims you have for your health, and creating a personalized yoga practice that moves you toward those intentions.
Your personalized yoga plan is woven together from an array of yogic tools, including movement and specific yoga postures, breath practices, adjustments to your current routine/lifestyle, meditation, and reflective self-inquiry.
I write out your yoga wellness plan so you can practice at home and make recommendations to local teachers and classes if your plan includes a studio practice, and I refer you to local health care providers as appropriate. This consultation can be a stand-alone appointment, or you may decide to schedule additional therapeutic sessions as needed.
Why Choose Yoga as a Therapeutic Tool?
Yoga, both as a system of beliefs and collect of practices, contains an array of potent tools for well-being. In particular, it offers people the opportunity to breathe, move, and practice being present.
From a 2016 randomized controlled trial looking at the use of yoga to support people living with low moods published in Depression and Anxiety, a peer-reviewed journal :
"Yoga plus regular care was more effective in reducing symptoms of depression compared with regular care alone."
Yoga therapy sessions begin with grounding practices to help you turn inward and identify your intentions for our time together. I then use tailored movement, breathing practices, restorative and assisted yoga postures, deep and reflective listening, guided self-inquiry, meditation, and other tools to address your needs.
