Yoga Therapy in Lansdowne, PA
What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy Programs Can Help Address trauma, anxiety & more
Comprehensive Yoga Therapy (CYT) is an individualized lifestyle approach to health and healing for the mind, body, and spirit. This modality incorporates somatic or body-oriented therapy with yoga philosophy and practice which can include mindfulness, meditation, breath work, energy work, individualized yoga sequences, relaxation, nutrition, healthy goal setting, and creative expression through the arts or movement. Trauma, anxiety, stress, depression, and other mental health concerns can show up in our bodies in things like racing heart, shortness of breath, disconnection from body, and more.
Yoga Therapy + Talk Therapy
Yoga therapy is an excellent evidence-based addition or supplement to talk therapy as it gives clients personalized tools for managing physical stress symptoms, regulating overwhelming emotions, and developing a deeper relationship with their bodies, mind, emotions, beliefs, and the world around them.
Our Yoga Therapists in the Philadelphia area are C-IAYT Certified
One of the safest ways to utilize CYT as a healing modality is to pair it with traditional talk therapy. Our yoga therapists are C-IAYT yoga therapists, meaning they are certified through the International Association of Yoga Therapists and have a specializiation in yoga for mental health, including anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, body image, and more. We know that trauma and anxiety can live in the body. Yoga therapy can also be a powerful tool for clients to access challenging feelings and memories that they may not otherwise be able to verbalize. And our yoga therapists collaborate closely with our psychotherapists, or are therapists themselves, so they can safely and effectively help our clients to make sense of the thoughts, feelings, and memories that show up during yoga therapy practices and process these experiences for healing and growth.
