Why Yoga Therapy?
- Non-intimidating, individualized practice designed with consideration of your history, physical limitations, and current emotional state
- Builds acceptance, mindfulness skills, patience, distress tolerance, and self-compassion
- Creates an internal sense of safety, so you can trust yourself, others, and live life with more ease
- Improves body image
- Alters the nervous system to reduce anxiety, depression, PTSD symptoms
- Allows for healing and relief when talking about current problems or past experiences is too overwhelming
- Complements talk-therapy or helpful as a stand-alone practice
- Helpful for improving overall wellness (emotional, mental, and physical)
I can also offer meditation instruction or infuse it into therapy by sharing techniques, education, and with actually guiding you through various mindful meditation practices.
- Regular practice of meditation can literally change your parts of your brain that contribute to anxiety/stress, decision-making, focus, and memory
- Increases your ability to be compassionate, aware, and introspective allowing you to feel more content and accepting in life
- Shows positive effects on emotional, mental, and physical health with consistent practice. Who doesn't want to feel better in mind, body, and spirit?!
