Restorative Yoga Therapy And Treatment

Take Control of Your Body, Breath and Mind

Restorative Yoga Therapy And Treatment

At AESM, we customize yoga therapy sessions to your individual needs and goals. Our treatment draws from a number of modalities, including physical postures and sequences, breathing practices, hands-on work, awareness/meditation exercises and relaxation techniques. Restorative yoga (employing props) also adds to the yoga therapy experience.

Yoga’s aim is to create harmony in body, breath and mind. Physical postures (asanas) promote balance of strength and elasticity in the muscles, healthy range of motion in the joints, and restore symmetry and alignment. Breathing techniques (pranayama) oxygenate muscle tissue and massage organs, promote awareness and are used to energize or relax our nervous system as required. Awareness of breath and body sets the stage for concentration and meditation.

If you suffer from any discomfort or disequilibrium, whether chronic or acute, you will likely benefit from yoga therapy. Here is a short list of ailments that are addressed through AESM yoga therapy sessions:

  • athletic injuries, especially from asymmetrical sports
  • overuse, or repetitive injuries
  • asthma
  • arthritis
  • stress
  • insomnia
  • fatigue
  • performance anxiety
  • depression

 

Of course we offer several therapeutic yoga services, including:

  • workplace yoga (small groups or private instruction at your workplace)
  • office yoga (seated practice at your work station, with customized short routines)
  • lecture/demonstrations on yoga

 

Yoga therapy stands either on its own or complements other physical therapies. No prior experience in yoga is needed.
