Reducing Pain and Stress While Improving Your WHOLE Health in the Process
Healing Your Burned Out Body
As women, we are often taking on a lot, as we live by the mantra -“keep pushing through”
In small short doses stress can actually give us the energy and motivation to get things done. However, long-term, chronic stress can impact our mental and physical health in significant and devastating ways making existing health conditions worse or leading to burnout.
Burnout isn’t just a state of mind, it’s a real syndrome that affects countless women.

When life is eaten up by anxiety and chronic stress, your body begins to break down. Sometimes it’s gradual. Other times it can feel like it comes out of nowhere.

What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga therapy is the self- empowering process where individuals with the assistance of a Yoga Therapist, implement a personalized therapeutic plan for the purpose of improving health and well-being through the science and practice of yoga.
Yoga Therapy uses gentle movement, yoga postures, breathing techniques and various other yogic tools to support client needs in a multi-dimensional, non-invasive approach. Through a holistic therapeutic relationship, a Yoga Therapist acts a guide supporting clients deepen their self-agency while providing a variety of approaches using yoga principles and Ayurveda philosophy to empower the client to manage their health condition and reduce their pain and symptoms while promoting personal growth and healing.

What's the Difference Between a Yoga Teacher and a Yoga Therapist?
Although there is overlap between what a Yoga teacher and Yoga Therapist learns in their education and training, there is a significant difference.
A Yoga Teacher must obtain a 200-hour level training with a Registered Yoga School in order to be recognized as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) by the Yoga Alliance which serves only as a directory, not an accrediting body for Yoga Teachers. This is why there is a great deal of variety among Yoga Teachers teaching styles as they guide students and classes.
A Yoga Therapist also requires a 200-hour level training prior to beginning their extended 800 hours of training, including a practicum under the mentorship of another Yoga Therapist, with a school that has been accredited by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) – an organization that has collaborated with physicians, allied health practitioners and yoga professionals to create an accreditation process for standardized Yoga Therapy training.
Yoga Therapists are trained extensively in anatomy and physiology, movement and biomechanics, and the integration of body-mind system, as well as basic knowledge of disease and mental health disorders. Yoga therapists are also trained in various assessments to measure client progress through an individualized therapeutic plan.
