Instructors: Ketna Shah & Lea-Ann McMillan
Yoga in it's complete form was intended to be an adjunct to any practice which nurtures the elevation of mind, body and spirit. Ayurveda, the science of self healing, is the oldest system of medicine known to man. Ayurveda embodies a complete guide to disease prevention, maintaining good health, and recovering from poor health (rejuvenation). This includes efficient breathing, relaxation, diet and nutrition, constitutional body types & characteristics, and the skillful application of food & herbs designed to support good health and lasting change. Although we do not teach Ayurveda specifically, it's time tested principles are interwoven into our Yoga Therapy program.
If you are looking for a holistic approach to improving the quality of your health, or, recovering from an injury and looking for some new and lasting tools for restoration, Yoga Therapy may be a good adjunct for you. You will work one on one with a Certified Yoga Therapist who will carefully (& non-judgementally) listen to your concerns, evaluate the quality of your breath, posture, movement, and constitutional type. Based on their findings, simple but potentially life changing breathing exercises, relaxation practices, and restorative yoga postures will be administered. State of mind, environment, & lifestyle adjustment recommendatons may also be shared.
Yoga props such as specialized cushions are used to make restorative yoga postures more comfortable and enjoyable. If a person has lost flexibility, these props along with expert instruction will allow them to perform and practice a posture with ease. They will then be able to apply the efficient breathing that has been shown to them and gain the maximum benefit of the posture or stretch.
