Yoga has been a popular exercise for generations because it is provides a balance between strengthening and stretching all parts of the body.
Many people turn to yoga when they are injured and want a form of exercise that’s easy on the body. However, group classes are not usually conducive to one-on-one yoga instruction or addressing individualized concerns—and could possibly do more harm to the injury than good. Yoga therapy recognizes not every pose is suitable for every body.
Yoga therapy adapts the practice of yoga to an individual’s specific needs, whether it involves an injury, health concern and/or physical limitation. One-on-one yoga is a wonderful way to be introduced to yoga if you are a beginner; and if you are already a yoga practitioner, it is an excellent way to learn corrections on postures.
At the end of your one-on-one yoga session you will have a series of exercises and/or poses specifically designed for your needs and anatomical build, which can be practiced at home.
The hands-on support provided during one-on-one yoga therapy sessions is invaluable.
