Frequently Asked Questions


What is Yoga Therapy?

Different from a group yoga class, Yoga therapy is a type of movement therapy that uses yoga postures, breathing exercises, meditation, and guided imagery to improve mental and physical health. Focusing holistically, yoga therapy encourages the integration of mind, body, and spirit. Modern yoga therapy covers a broad range of therapeutic modalities, incorporating elements from physical therapy, traditional yoga practices and various wellness techniques.

Because of its concentration on mind and body integration, yoga therapy is extremely effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders, chronic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction.

Yoga therapy sessions are conducted in one-on-one or small group settings and are customized to the client’s needs. Yoga therapy can be provided as an adjunct therapy to complement other forms of treatment, or it can be used to directly address a specific issue—before or after—other forms of treatment.

What Happens in a Yoga Therapy Session?

Yoga therapists use movement, yoga postures, breathing exercises, meditation, and guided imagery as tools to empower their clients and help them improve their mind, body and spirit.

The initial session kicks off your yoga therapy program and lasts approximately 1.5 -2 hours. This time frame includes going over intake questions and a doing physical assessment to determine what your program will involve. We’ll then try on some movements and techniques appropriate to your needs and goals, then decide together on what sounds reasonable for your home practice (what you will be doing at home in between sessions.)

The following sessions, lasting approximately 1-1.5 hours each, will build on the previous, customizing the content of your program to bring about your desired results and leave you with an individualized home practice to continue on your own.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

This depends on the client and their needs. I have seen some clients just a few times, and others have been coming for years. Some pop back in for a “tune up” of their program as they progress or come up against new obstacles, some I never see again.

It is in the client’s best interest to invest in themselves with at least 6 sessions, as it usually takes between a month and month and a half for them to really see and feel results and feel comfortable enough with the practices to continue on their own.
