Yoga Therapy is the specific adaptation of different aspects of yoga for the individual. In a one- on-one-setting, issues are carefully considered, and a practice is then customized.
Yoga Therapy has been used for years to help with conditions such as hypertension, anxiety and depression. Now, there is mounting research, case studies and evidence that yoga has a profoundly positive effect on the body and mind, elevating spirit. Yoga Therapy is a Complementary and Alternative medicine modality implemented in hospitals and institutions. Heading up the continued advances in the field is the International Association of Yoga Therapists ( www.IAYT.org). Yoga Therapy centers continue to populate the East and the West.
Issues for a yoga therapist:
- Mood Disorders
- Musculoskeletal imbalances
- Metabolic issues
- Chronic and Terminal Illnesses
- Psycho-Spiritual Inquiry and more….
Upon deciding to begin Yoga Therapy, you will be given an Intake Questionnaire to complete. Based on this, an approach is formulated. Your first session will typically last 90 minutes. After your initial assessment, you will practice a personalized session. You are welcome to record your session and home session sheets will be written out in most cases. Expected compliance is usually about 20 minutes of home time a few times a week to see results. Yoga Therapy does not replace your doctor’s advice. We can work with other health care providers. Treetop always offers financial assistance to those who are dedicated to practice.
