Yoga Therapy, like physiotherapy, is a private, individual assessment to gain an understanding of your current health needs. You do not need to know anything about yoga to benefit. Some people come because of injury, chronic health problems or stress which yoga can address. Others wish to delve deeper into yoga with an experienced teacher. You will meet with Barb, a certified Yoga Therapist, to create a personal, supportive yoga practice for healing and for the stabilizing benefits of yoga.
What to expect?
The initial consultation and assessment will take 1 1/2 hours. Dress in relaxed, comfortable clothing. You will leave with a clear and easy to follow daily yoga practice. Follow-up sessions will be based on your needs as you experience changes in your health and your desire to improve your well-being.
The cost is $90 per hour.
