A Therapeutic Approach to Yoga
We will explore optimal ranges of motion for the spine, hips and shoulders to increase mobility and stability and to decrease pain. You will begin to understand how you may be moving with compensations in the body and how that can create excessive tension and possible pain. As you uncover some of these patterns and explore moving differently, you may find your pain is reduced and you are able to move with more ease. You will also learn how to cultivate relaxation through the exploration of breath. In Yoga Strong and Functional Flow we build on these foundational principles to build strength while maintaining a mindful approach to movement.

WHAT IS THERAPEUTIC YOGA?
Therapeutic yoga is a mindful and personalized approach to decrease stress, pain and tension. Therapeutic yoga uses a systematic approach utilizing a combination of yoga postures, breathing techniques and meditation to decrease or eliminate the pain you are experiencing. The process introduces the concept of moving well to unwind tension and increase stability and mobility. When you move better you will feel better.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
Your one-hour session will introduce you to concepts of pure movement. You will learn how to move in your optimal range of motion to decrease your pain and increase your stability. Starting slow is essential to the healing process so that new movement patterns can be developed for long term changes. After your session, we will customize a personal program that fits the needs and demands of your life.
