What is
Yoga Therapy?

I AM Yoga Therapy is a total body stretch and energy opener. It uses wall, prop and assisted poses to help you move into areas of stiffness, constriction, tightness, and pain that you normally avoid. Avoiding areas of tension keeps the tightness intact and allows the body to continue to build up tension and exacerbates misalignments in the body.

Much of the pain and discomfort we experience is because of these structural misalignments that could be addressed by a simple regime of moving and stretching the body through its full range of motion. I AM Yoga Therapy doesn’t just work with the symptoms – it works at the psychosomatic roots. Sometimes symptoms are exacerbated or even caused by unresolved mental and emotional patterns. By holding the body in various positions for longer periods of time, combined with breath and meditative facilitation, we can move into these areas and gently and effectively release multi-level tensions at the physical, emotional and psychic level.

 

It’s purpose is to free that which is hindering the body’s ability to heal itself.
