Yoga As Therapy
Our Approach in the Bay Area
Our approach to yoga is holistic and resonant of the 5000-year old system of total wellness from ancient India. Yoga therapy is about combining yogic tools and techniques to suit your conditions and temperament for an optimal relaxation and mindfulness, which is necessary for healing. In our yoga therapy program, we offer individual attention and followup with home practices and lifestyle education. We place emphasis on breath awareness for sharper focus, loosening practices to prepare for yogasanas and hatha yoga poses for mind/body awareness, and pranayama/meditation for a deeper connection with oneself.
We offer yoga for back pain, neck pain, arthritis, respiratory disorders, diabetes mellitus, metabolic disorders such as cholesterol problems, mental health conditions, cancer, neurological disorders and women's health conditions among others. We also provide therapy for children's special needs such as ADHD and Autism Spectrum. All our classes are a combination of pranayam and yoga asanas chosen to address the specific requirements. Our teachers are certified yoga therapists who strive to provide you a positive health experience and support. What is yoga therapy? Learn More
