Yoga Therapy - A Science that Heals the Body and Mind

What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga therapy is a unique application of yoga in which the student, working with the therapist, is given a custom-designed practice to improve overall health and address specific conditions, illnesses, or diseases.

A practice may include exercises/postures, breathing, sound, gestures, visualization, guided self-inquiry, and meditation, and can be designed in an infinite number of combinations. The student's practice is non-invasive, progresses over time, and complements allopathic and alternative healing modalities.

Gentle yoga therapy combines commitment, about 1/2 hour 5 times p/week (my job), with loads of knowledge and creativity (Anita's job). It is individually designed for me and the results...greatly reduced pain, added flexibility and strength...speak for themselves even after 25 hours of back surgery.

How Can Yoga Therapy Help Me?

By applying yoga’s tools in a manner that is comfortable, appropriate for daily practice, and is specifically designed for your situation and goals, yoga therapy can help you:

I’ve been working with Anita to reduce anxiety for four months and have experienced very positive results. We have concentrated on yogic breathing and gentle exercise and the outcome has been remarkable. My anxiety has lessened significantly during that time, as has a tremor. Anita is smart, a good listener and observer, and a caring practitioner. I look forward to continue working with her and I recommend her highly.
