What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga therapy is a powerful method of facilitating changes in your body and managing pain. It is a hands-on technique that brings a greater sense of awareness and consciousness to your body. As a result of this increased awareness, you will feel more enlivened and areas of your body that were previously tight or “numb” will begin to open up. Some people say they experience a change in their body “equivalent to 3 or 4 Svaroopa® yoga classes.” This work is appropriate for those who are in so much pain that they are hesitant to try a regular yoga class. During a Yoga Therapy session, you move into fully supported poses and the practitioner does specific, targeted adjustments to help facilitate a release of tension.
What is Embodyment®?
Embodyment® is one of the techniques used in Yoga Therapy and may be done as a separate session, or as part of a Yoga Therapy session. In an Embodyment® session, you rest in Shavasana (Yoga’s relaxation pose) while the practitioner places their hands on specific points in your lower spine. This promotes a release of deep tension in the muscles connected to your spine. The session is very relaxing and requires no effort on your part.
How often should I do it and how much does it cost?
Yoga students often find that Yoga Therapy and/or Embodyment® therapy helps to “fast-forward” the changes that they experience in Yoga classes. Some students enjoy having a session once or twice a month. In special cases, such as recovering from injury or physical problems, students may benefit by having more frequent sessions for the first one or two weeks.
A one-hour session is $80.00. A discount is available if you choose to buy a series of sessions.
