What is Therapeutic Yoga?
Therapeutic Yoga is a practice for those recovering from, or living with, injury or illness. It combines restorative yoga (supported postures), gentle yoga, pranayama (breath work), hands-on healing, and guided meditation. Therapeutic Yoga is an excellent choice for those who need something gentle yet effective for bringing the body into balance and reducing stress. It allows you to step away from the busy-ness of the outside world and access the deeper wisdom that resides within you.
Our therapeutic yoga wall series is based in the alignment based Iyengar Method. Students will learn yoga postures that address and correct postural habits and muscular imbalances that can either cause or aggravate existing injuries. The goal of the series is for each student to develop a short, personalized daily home practice of self-applied care, learning to manage and reduce pain, and prevent future injury. This therapeutic course is appropriate for anyone experiencing pain, stemming from injury, chronic conditions, or for anyone experiencing occasional to chronic discomfort. No prior yoga experience is required.
