What can one expect from Yoga Therapy?
When a person decides to initiate yoga therapy, the therapist will first conduct an initial assessment. This assessment is designed to do the following:
Once the treatment plan is established in this first consultation, the frequency of sessions is agreed upon and sessions are scheduled. From this point, therapy sessions will most likely include the following components:
The therapist will guide the person in therapy through a series of breathing exercises ranging from energizing breaths to balancing breaths.
The therapist will teach the person in treatment appropriate yoga poses that address problem areas. For example, the “Legs Up the Wall” pose is used to treat things like anxiety and insomnia. In this pose, the person lays on his or her back with legs positioned up against the wall.
Relaxation and mindfulness are the focus of meditation when it is combined with yoga poses.
The yoga therapist attempts to calm the body and mind by providing a guided visualization intended to bring inner peace.
An important element for any yoga practice is to find a way to incorporate it into daily life.
