What is healing yoga?
Healing Yoga is yoga for health and healing—movement, breath, and awareness practice guided by an experienced teacher skilled in applying yogic principles and tools to specific health concerns. In yoga, the source of healing is understood to lie within and yoga for healing is designed to support the whole person, regardless of condition.
Individualized practices, designed by your teacher, incorporate movement, breath and focused awareness to help you progress toward improved health and well-being. Your practice will help you release deeply held patterns and restore the flow of physical, mental-emotional and spiritual energy within the body.
Your teacher will work with you privately over time to create short- and longer-term practices that complement and support other treatments you may be receiving through medical and rehabilitation therapies.
