What Can Yoga Therapy Do For You?

Let's start of with what Yoga Therapy is, then we will dive deep on what it can do for you!

Yoga therapy is a mind-body practice that focuses on your physical, emotional and mental health. The practice uses movement, mindfulness, meditation, relaxation and breathing exercises to help you relax, relieve stress and manage underlying conditions or symptoms in addition to treatment by a healthcare provider. Each class is focused on one area of the body and each class is different. From chest/shoulder openers to hip/glute openers or your feet and legs we cover it all! Props (bolsters, blocks, blankets, straps) are used throughout the class. To help you ease into the asana (postures).

Every class touches on the whole body with a heavy emphasis on one major area. A special treat that our offered during Yoga Therapy at Green Lotus are the use of massage balls, and EFT tapping, This beautiful combination is used to help you improve your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
