Yoga Therapy private sessions can look very similar to Physical Therapy or meditative counseling. Professional Yoga Therapists are trained extensively in the structural rehabilitation of many injuries and illnesses as well as in the mind-body-soul approach to healing. This enhances the physical healing process with the addition of Neurological Re-Pattering, Breath Awareness, Emotional Balancing and Mental Focus.
It is important when choosing a Yoga Therapist that you choose one who has the full professional level of training to insure that you receive the highest level of care available to you. All Professional Yoga Therapists carry a minimum of 500 hours of training in the therapeutic applications of yoga, while many have advanced their training in areas of specialties which may include Mental Health, Structural Rehabilitation, Heart Health, Cancer Care, Ayurvedic Medicine, Dance Therapy, Somatics, Yoga Nidra & Meditation.
Yoga Therapists honor the allopathic medical community's expertise, referring when ever possible to local Physical Therapists, Primary Care Providers and Mental Health Workers on an as needed bases.
