The most significant difference in a yoga therapy class is the intention of the practice. Yoga therapy is the application of yoga (practices) for health & wellness. Classes are “topic” driven. One class might focus on heart health, in another digestive function might be covered. Stress management and balancing the hormones are very popular classes. In each class the entire body is addressed including: the physical body, the mental body, the emotional body, and the spiritual body.
Yoga Therapy Classes are 90 minutes. It’s pretty hard to get the experience we are aiming for in any less time. During class, a topic will be introduced with some discussion. The practices will begin with a seated body scan and forming an intention. After that we practice: pranayama, asana, expressive movement, nada yoga, dharana, dhyana, yoga nidra, and meditation. Every class is different and the practices are chosen to accomodate the students with most of what they need, and some of what they want.
All are welcome. Chairs & Assorted Props are available.
