About Yoga Therapy
Yoga Therapy is the professional application of the principles and practices of yoga to promote health and well-being within a therapeutic relationship that includes personalized assessment, goal setting, lifestyle management, and yoga practices for individuals or small groups.
Unlike a regular yoga class, yoga therapy is typically conducted on a one-on-one basis, and the practices and techniques are tailored to meet the specific needs and goals of the individual. A yoga therapist will typically conduct a thorough assessment of the individual's physical, mental, and emotional health, and will then develop a customized home practice that is designed to address their specific needs.
Yoga therapy may include a variety of yoga practices and techniques, including physical postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), meditation, relaxation techniques, and lifestyle modifications, medicated oils and teas.
Overall, yoga therapy offers a holistic approach to health and wellbeing that aims to address the 5 Koshas (layers) versus a singular physical body of the Western system. In Addition to the Physical Body the Koshic system includes The Subtle Bodies, The Mental Body, The Higher Intellect and the Bliss Body.
When a client presents with an imbalance, the Yoga Therapist will look to the 5 bodies (Koshas) to help determine the source of the imbalance. So for example when we are looking for the source of a client's pain or suffering we have multiple layers to assess. Pain is a body’s way of getting attention and together we can unfurl its messages to us.
Sometimes what presents as a physical pain can be deeply rooted in an imbalanced pattern of holding, alignment issues or even in a more mental or emotional stressor or lifestyle imbalance.
The 5 Koshic Model helps us to evaluate potential underlying causes and then develop solutions.
