Medical Therapeutic Yoga
Yoga was developed up to 5000 years ago in India as a comprehensive system for well being on all levels. These levels include physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Yoga is a system of techniques and guidance for enriched living with higher awareness and fulfillment. Although there is a wide variety of approaches to its practice, all approaches to Yoga, especially medical therapeutic yoga, are intended to promote wellbeing.
In medical therapeutic yoga, practice can be modified to accommodate those with physical limitations or illness. As you breathe, move, stretch, and meditate with this ancient practice you can improve breathing, lung capacity, circulation, lymphatic flow, increase flexibility, strength, balance, and focus, while decreasing inflammation, anxiety and stress. Through breathing techniques (Pranayama), meditation (Dhyana) and poses (Asana) the practice of yoga will help you find the mind-body connection bringing a deeper understanding of your own personal experience and allowing the body to find its own path to healing from the inside out so you can begin your journey towards transformation and lifelong wellness.
