Yoga is an ancient practice that brings us into the present moment by engaging us in the here-and-now experience of our breath, body, thoughts, and emotions.
Psychotherapy techniques allow us to examine who and how we are, so that we have a clearer understanding of the patterns that bind us and prevent us from stepping into who we want to be.
Yoga Therapy, as a combination of yogic and psychotherapeutic techniques, gives us an opportunity to pause, reflect, get into our body, and reunite with who we are at the core of our being. It is in this place, in our deepest sense of Self, that we can discover the wisdom and insight that will illuminate our path and help us to live fully and authentically.
This powerful framework for transformation, healing and growth combines various combinations of yoga postures, talk therapy, meditation, and healing touch. The combination of these tools helps us to go deep into the mind-body network and shift the ways in which we contribute to our own internal struggle. When we change the way we relate to ourselves, we change the way we relate to the world.
Yoga Therapy is a deep and beautiful experience with oneself, in the presence of a loving, compassionate, and experienced therapist. It is safe for all levels, and is a trauma-sensitive approach that is completely client-centered, meaning the process is as gentle and tentative as feels safe for the client.
