How Does Yoga Therapy work?
From a physical perspective, the combination of breath and movement through yoga postures strengthens and balances the entire organism, assisting metabolic function; the cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, and musculoskeletal systems, to function effectively and efficiently. Breath and meditation/relaxation techniques lower blood pressure, slow pulse and breathing, and improve mood and concentration, thus reprogramming the body’s habitual response to stress.
Yoga Therapy clients are actively engaged in developing and undertaking a customized personal care program.
