What to expect from a Therapeutic Yoga Session:
Each session is tailored to the individual, but primarily the practice is slow paced, with most of the work done on the floor, with some standing postures. Sessions begin with guided body awareness & breath work, which are key to the healing process. Sessions include therapeutic movement designed to deepen body awareness, bring flow to the tissues of the body, and gently strengthen & balance the body. Movement might include yoga postures, Thai yoga massage, Neurogenic stress and tension release, somatic movement, yoga Nidra and meditation, functional posture and gait assessment, chair yoga & restorative yoga. Sessions may include body work, in the form of Yoga Therapy balls, massage, aromatherapy, affirmations, mudras ( hand gestures) and energy healing.
