The Therapeutic Method:
Yoga Therapeutics targets a number of areas in the body by using a series of individualized postures chosen to address the imbalances in these specific areas. All of the postures are taught in a precise, methodical, and conscious manner. The sequence is focus is on the bones, joints, muscles, breath, and consciousness. As a student progresses in personal practice, he or she is progressively able to stay in poses with lightness and ease. Maintaining the posture in a dynamic state allows positive physical and psychological changes to occur, which brings the student closer to peacefulness, equanimity and inner connection.
The Therapeutic Method Consists of:
- Specific instruction on how yoga can ease various ailments and stress and build strength in all of the systems of the body.
- Props to adjust the poses for those people who are inflexible or unable to do the pose and also to facilitate more opening.
- Standing poses to develop strength, stability, and stamina. If a student can not do the poses, we modify with props, as for example, using chairs and the floor and the wall.
- Initial postures address the gross imbalances, and these postures are followed by more challenging poses to address the deeper and more subtle layers of challenge or injury.
- Opposing muscular actions and internal traction, which increase disc and joint space while strengthening the muscles.
- Each sequence to increase the student’s understanding of how to work correctly.
- An tailored sequence for the student to take home and practice. Once the student has worked on the sequence and experienced personal changes, the sequence will be modified to respond to the changes that are taking place.
- Passive postures which help to highlight student’s pain. These postures enable the student to learn different actions necessary to maintain stability.
