Yoga therapy encompasses not only the body and the movements we do on the yoga mat but how we live and treat others and ourselves off the mat, which is ultimately what matters for a healthy and whole life.

Simply and elegantly stated in the words of Judith Hanson Lasater, yoga therapy is “the use of the techniques of yoga to create, stimulate, and maintain an optimum state of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health.”

In this course, we work towards

teaching greater body awareness

teaching proper alignment not only for yoga but for daily life

teaching simple movements to deal your ailments that you can do at home

discover ways for you to relax and distress
