Is Your Client Feeling Stuck Or Struggling With Unexplained Health Issues?
Add yoga therapy to your treatment plan.
Try Nervous System Regulation
Yoga therapists are experts in breathwork. Specially prescribed breathwork activates the body’s relaxation response. This leads to a decrease in the production of stress hormones, lowers the heart rate and blood pressure, and increases parasympathetic nervous system activity. Breathwork promotes relaxation, healing, and optimal functioning of the body and mind.
Try Somatic Work for Trauma
Our yoga therapists have a trauma-informed approach and assist clients in healing trauma directly without the triggering need to recount their story. Instead, the focus is on disrupting patterns, facilitating new interoceptive experiences to promote changes in the brain, and establishing a sense of safety through grounding techniques.
Refer your clients experiencing childhood or chronic trauma, PTSD, acute trauma, and IPV. Contact us if you are experiencing vicarious trauma, burnout, or want to experience these practices for yourself.
Try Meditation for Brain Change
We prioritize identifying the simplest, most accessible, and enjoyable meditation practice for our clients. Meditation helps rewire the brain’s circuitry through new brainwave states, altering brain activity and fostering novel patterns to promote expanded awareness and transformative shifts in perspective.
Refer your clients dealing with addiction, eating disorders, OCD, depression, grief, loss, or challenging life transitions.

How Yoga Therapy Helped A Man Suffering From Anxiety
N.R. was a man in his 20s suffering from anxiety associated with college transitions and the accompanying changes in routine. His symptoms were dominated by episodes of stomach discomfort, lack of appetite, and urinary retention that lasted for several days at a time.
He was referred for yoga therapy by his talk therapist. His previous attempts at managing symptoms included moderation in caffeine and alcohol, taking showers, and reading, but these were not enough at the time of yoga therapy intake. He was preparing to move upon graduation and didn’t want to experience another episode. He was looking for a different way to take charge of his own health.
His yoga therapy treatment plan for home practice included breathwork, gentle movement, and meditation.
After 3 months of practice, he hadn’t had an episode. He moved upon graduation without experiencing any adverse symptoms of anxiety. He felt empowered by his ability to self-manage his symptoms.
N.R.’s experience is not atypical.
Our clients often come to us when they exhaust other treatment options. Yoga therapy offers mind-body practices that can be transformative for symptom management.
