Therapeutic Yoga Asana
Whether due to stress, trauma, or injury, or you simply need some relaxation in your life, yoga gives you the tools to take care of yourself. I am a Certified Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists and therefore we can work together on very specific issues going on in your body.
There are bio-mechanical principles within the body that allow the practitioner to align in a conscious way. It is not enough to have book knowledge of how to hold your body and carry yourself. It takes regular practice to understand the principles fully. Good alignment is good therapy. If you are feeling aches or pains in some area of your body, often there is some habit you have developed unconsciously that takes your physical form out of its optimal posture. Through repeated hatha yoga practice over time, you can create good alignment habits and relieve yourself of aches or pains. It is not a quick fix, but it will be lasting.
