The Internation Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) defines Yoga Therapy as
“the process of empowering individuals to progress toward health and well-being through the application of the teaching and practices of yoga.”
Yoga has always been a profound healing modality, in fact, many of the luminaries who defined what we now practice came to yoga as a way of dealing with health issues that they had in their youth.
At Sedona Wellness we integrate the yogic sciences with our wide breadth of knowledge in the somatic sciences along with over ten years of clinical experience to address all aspects of our client’s concerns.
Many clients ask “what is a Yoga Therapy session like?” Every Yoga Therapy session is as unique as the individual client and their state of being at that moment. However, a typical yoga therapy session lasts approximately 90 minutes, will be performed one-on-one and may include any number of practices including:
- Cleanses (Sat-Karmas)
- Breathwork (Pranayama)
- Sound Therapy (Mantra)
- Postures that are modified to fit the individuals physical state or limitations
- Ayurvedic Lifestyle Recommendations (or referral to a practitioner)
These practices serve to stimulate or placate the various systems of the body, bringing about harmony and balance in a gradual, healthy manner.
It is recommended to schedule a minimum of four sessions to begin a Yoga Therapy program as this allows the client to gradually integrate the information into a daily practice that will have a long lasting effect.
