online yoga therapy made easy

Yoga therapy incorporates strategic and evidence based techniques of breathing, poses and postures to address physical, mental and mental health challenges you want to address. It's not only holistic, but a powerful complementary path to healing.

How is yoga therapy different from yoga?

Yoga integrates mind, body, and spirit through physical postures, breathing, and meditation. Yoga therapy uses yoga techniques to manage specific health challenges, as assessed through physical, mental, and emotional health. It is often used to complement traditional medical treatments, improving quality of life and overall well-being.

Is yoga therapy just PT?

No, yoga therapy is not just physical therapy. While both may involve similar physical movements, yoga therapy takes a holistic approach to healing, combining physical, mental, and emotional well-being practices. Additionally, yoga therapy is often used as a complementary therapy alongside traditional medical treatments, while PT is typically used as a primary treatment method for physical injuries or disabilities.

Conversations with your healthcare provider

Yoga therapy is applied to so many challenges many of us face. The effects of yoga therapy vary based on each person’s experience. It often complements traditional medical treatments, improving quality of life and overall well-being.

While research is ongoing to learn more about the effects of yoga therapy on the body and mind, current studies are limited. There’s promise in the practice but it isn’t proven to treat any underlying conditions.

yoga therapy, emotional & mental health

Yoga therapy has been shown to be effective in helping to alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, and loneliness. Yoga therapy is a holistic approach that combines physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation practices to help improve mental and emotional health.

Here are some ways that yoga therapy can help with depression, anxiety, and loneliness:

  1. Reducing stress: Yoga therapy has been shown to be effective in reducing stress and promoting relaxation, which can help to alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety.

  2. Boosting mood: Yoga therapy has been shown to increase the production of endorphins, which are natural mood-boosters. Regular practice can help to improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression.

  3. Improving self-awareness: Yoga therapy can help to improve self-awareness and promote self-care, which can help to reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation.

  4. Enhancing social connections: Participating in group yoga therapy classes can help to enhance social connections and reduce feelings of loneliness.
