Wellness. Made Easy.

An Integrative Approach

Yoga Therapy

Yoga emphasizes the connection between the mind and body in the healing process. It recognizes that emotional and psychological issues can manifest physically in the body. 

Yoga Therapy allows  you to discover how to channel the energy that radiates from a state of alignment, how to connect the points of your experience into a coherent whole that resonates with clarity and purpose.

Well-Being Within

Our thoughts, beliefs and attitude influence our overall sense of wellbeing resulting in a complex relationship between body and mind. Mental state, either conscious or unconscious, has a physiology attached to it with either a positive or negative associated feeling felt in the physical body. We may have a situation that causes a visceral reaction and have no idea why we are reacting.

Yoga is an inherently holistic approach, simultaneously working on the body, mind, and spirit. We consider your whole being; characteristics, preferences, needs, spiritual beliefs and motivation. Then, customize your session to help you heal a wound, conquer your fears, boost your self-confidence, and bring your mind and body into sweet harmony. Most importantly, we bring back the vital life force within you, so you can gradually improve every aspect of your life.

Movement for Wellness

Yoga therapy helps improve mental health by combining traditional yoga practices with modern therapeutic techniques. It’s tailored to individual needs, providing a personalized approach to wellness.

 

Here’s how it helps:

  1. Stress Reduction: Yoga practices, including meditation and breathing exercises, activate the parasympathetic nervous system, promoting relaxation and reducing stress levels.

  2. Mindfulness and Self-Awareness: Mindfulness practices in yoga encourage self-awareness and acceptance, which can help you better understand and manage your emotions.

  3. Reduced Symptoms of Anxiety: Regular practice has been shown to lower levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) and increase serotonin (a feel-good hormone), which helps alleviate symptoms of anxiety.

  4. Physical Activity: Movement-based practices improve mood, increase energy levels, and promote better sleep, all of which positively impact mental health.

  5. Connection: Yoga practice fosters a deeper sense of self-belonging and inner harmony, which is crucial for mental well-being.

  6. Resilience Building: Yoga teaches coping mechanisms and emotional regulation, which can help us become more resilient to life's challenges.

  7. Neurobiological Benefits: Studies suggest yoga changes brain structure, improving areas associated with emotional regulation, attention, and empathy.

Yoga therapy can be an effective complementary treatment for mental health conditions and is used alongside conventional therapy treatments.
