Yoga as Therapy
Assess, Address, Recover
For a yoga practice to be healing and effective, it is crucial to take into account our starting point – our body, posture and alignment as they are now. Whatever postural tendencies we have and whatever postural imbalances exist in our bodies – we bring them into our practice. These tendencies will affect the way we move into the poses and the way we hold the poses. If we become aware of our postural tendencies and associated muscular imbalances, we can practice intelligently to unravel restricting movement patterns. If we aren’t aware of them, we might unintentionally keep strengthening their grip on us through practice as our bodies will always take path of least resistance, which means falling into our habits rather than reversing them.
During yoga as therapy session, we will first look at where you are now – assess your posture. We will then look at how your posture, muscular imbalances (if any) and past injuries or current pain/discomfort areas affect your movement. Together, we will develop a progressive plan to bring the body back in balance, unravel restricted movement patterns and improve your posture. You will also gain an insight into how to apply yoga poses to your own body for them to work therapeutically and assist your recovery.
