PRIVATE YOGA THERAPY SESSIONS
1-on-1 Private Sessions
Private yoga therapy sessions empower you to discover simple yoga-based practices that can be incorporated into your lifestyle to enhance your overall health and wellbeing. Yoga is not a one-size-fits all modality. Therefore, the yoga therapy model of health takes into consideration every aspect of a person’s life, rather than only looking at one symptom or condition in isolation. Additionally, yogic philosophy recognizes that when we have trouble in one aspect of our health (e.g. back pain), it will manifest in other areas of our lives as well (e.g. mood, breathing patterns, social interactions, etc.). For this reason, yoga therapy takes a holistic individual-centered approach to health to address your needs at every level.
During this 90-minute session we will discuss your history and lifestyle, any relevant conditions, injuries, or symptoms you may be experiencing, and the reasons you are pursuing yoga therapy. The consultation also includes a physical evaluation to determine where musculoskeletal imbalance may be present in your body. This evaluation involves looking at your posture and habitual movement patterns, as well as the testing of key muscle groups that may be contributing to areas of pain or discomfort. Additionally, we will assess your breathing pattern as dysfunctional breathing can greatly affect our experience at the physical, mental, and emotional levels. Taking all of this into account, we will develop specific and attainable yoga therapy goals that will guide our work together. Following the first session, I will provide you with a personalized plan of care. This is a home practice that you can do between sessions to help you achieve your goals.
Like the world around us, we are dynamic and always changing. Therefore, what we need from our yoga practice is likely to shift overtime. Follow-up sessions are an important part of the process as they allow an opportunity to track progression, discuss what is working and adapt what is not. Most individuals benefit from 6 weekly/biweekly sessions in the beginning followed by maintenance sessions overtime as needed.
Throughout our work together, we will design and adapt home practice plans for you to do between sessions. These plans can be as short or in-depth as you see fit and will be designed to support your goals. Home practice is a key aspect of yoga therapy. It empowers you to make the practice your own and to do the work necessary to see results.
