is an approach to yoga whereby it is a vehicle for healing the body, mind and spirit.
It requires a depth of knowledge and years of study in order to effectively address issues arising, within a scope of practice.
It is well suited to those whose bodies are tight, injured and aging - where special care is needed. It is also highly beneficial for those suffering from stress, depletion, trauma, anxiety and emotional pain. Yoga therapy serves to meet an individual where he or she is at, and to support them there.
It is said that sitting is the new smoking - that a sedentary lifestyle is the pre-cursor and a major contributing factor to illness and disease.
We are meant to move, not to sit at desks or in cars or on couches for several hours
at a time.
MOVEMENT heals. It keeps us limber, mobile and vital. Movement lubricates joints, keeps muscles and fascia supple and adaptable, and it supports healthy organ functions. MOVEMENT is LIFE.
