In the past decade, modern medicine and scientific studies have documented how body, mind and spirit all closely influence overall health. This concept has been integral to classical yoga for thousands of years, and because yoga addresses the whole individual - physically, mentally, energetically, and spiritually - it provides healing at many different levels. Yoga as therapy is one of the original forms of holistic health management.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Is Yoga Therapy like physical therapy?

A. No. Although some postures are used in the same manner as in physical therapy, yoga therapy also incorporates breathing practices, relaxation therapy, energy work and various forms of meditation.

Q. How many sessions will I need to see improvement?

A. There is no set number. Each client is given an individualized program for home practice. If the client continues with a dedicated practice at home, improvement can be achieved within a short time, even with one session.

Q. How much does a session cost?

A. A first appointment is 2 hours to assess needs and develop an appropriate program that will work with your condition and time constraints; the investment is $200. Follow-up appointments to adjust or progress a practice may vary but are generally 1 hour long for $120.
