Individual Yoga Therapy
Integrated Rehabilitation and Yoga Therapy with Personalized One-On-One Instruction
- I take time in a one-on-one setting to understand each client’s current needs and goals and then design a program just for them.
- Everyone receives a HEP- Home Exercise Program.
The One-On-One Study Process
- The Student fills out an intake form detailing their health history ” and current situation, complaints, goals, etc.”
- The Yoga therapist talks with the individual regarding that history, as well as asking questions about their living situation, current lifestyle, diet, activities.
- The Yoga therapist asks the student to do simple movements so that she can observe what is happening with the student on the physical level. During this process we will often talk with the student about aggravating and relieving factors involved in their problem.
- The Yoga Therapist will instruct each student individually so that she can develop a relationship with each of their students, and the personal element or relationship aspect of our approach is important. Once the teacher understands the individual’s issue(s) and circumstances, she will develop a home Yoga program that emphasizes three things: conscious breathing, physical movements, and individualized purposeful sequencing of those movements in coordination with the breath.
- Each course is carefully constructed to stay well within the physical limits of that person.
- Then the Yoga therapist instructs this personalized program to the student, revising it according to the student’s response. Students will receive written practices using traditional stick figures for visual reference.
The initial consultation typically lasts 60-75 minutes, but follow up sessions are usually shorter, approximately 60-45 minutes in length.
