The education and skills required to work as a yoga therapist surpass those of the average yoga teacher, necessitating a comprehensive understanding of anatomy, physiology and psycho-spirituality from both the eastern and western traditions. Yoga therapy is a highly personalized experience that focuses on your specific condition and needs. It offers a means for safe, personal healing to people living with chronic pain or illness. You can expect a tailored program unique to you that incorporates breath, movement and meditation. Individual yoga therapy is ideal for those with special needs or conditions, who prefer a slower-paced program and a one-on-one setting.
BendnMove offers a 4 week yoga therapy program that includes one 90 minute intake session to assess and begin the private practice. Each remaining session is 60 minutes and can be scheduled up to 3 weeks apart. The 60 minute sessions include review and assessment of the personal practice designed in the first session and changes to help personalize and deepen the practice. This is a highly personalized experience that provides a deep look into how the tools of yoga can help you transform your life.
Does yoga therapy replace other treatment modalities?
Yoga therapy is leading edge and uses yoga as a complementary treatment to traditional medical healing practices. Based on on-going treatment studies, these weekly sessions are ideal for those with chronic lower back pain, neck pain and auto-immune disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis, among many chronic conditions.
