Yoga Therapeutics

Yoga can be used as a therapeutic tool for many physical and mental responses

 

Mind-body research is now demonstrating Yoga's effectiveness as a treatment for chronic pain, mental responses, cardiovascular disease and so much more.

Yoga, from a therapeutic perspective, explores a deeper understanding of anatomy, physiology, plus the integration of Eastern & Western methodologies.

While the focus of a yoga teacher is to teach yoga asanas (poses), the focus of a Yoga Therapeutics Specialist is less about teaching yoga asanas (poses) and more about applying specific yoga techniques to help a person reduce symptoms they may be dealing with through a customized Yoga Therapeutics Session

These are personalized, 1 on 1 sessions, aimed to assist students with living a better quality of life, allowing them to heal and cope with physically demanding lifestyles, sedentary lifestyles, mental responses, ailments, or injuries.

Client Success Story

thumbnail_IMG_9212.jpg

Doing a yoga therapeutics program with Nicole has completely changed my body and improved the constant pain I was in. I’ve suffered from tendinitis in my hips for 10+ years and was formally diagnosed with hamstring tendinosis about 4 years ago, which was unfortunately the end of my running days. My daily pain levels on a scale of 1 – 10 would run around a 7 or an 8, a 6 was a good day. I spent an incredible amount of time, effort, and money on orthopedic doctors, physical therapy, MRIs, chiropractic, massage, and dry needling – NONE of it worked for the long haul. After five sessions over three months with Nicole, my daily pain levels are anywhere between 1 and 3, with the average being a 2. After talking through my goals and habits, she assessed my body to figure out the true source of the issue. Our sessions were a combination of rehabilitation exercises, stretches and yoga, all of which were specifically designed to help strengthen my weak areas. She gave me PDF training plans after each one of our sessions that I can refer to – I call them my little body bibles – I’ll use them to continue the road to healing & recovery. Nicole also combines other modalities with yoga, including well-being coaching, myofascial release, and Thai massage. I don’t know where I would be without her help and will return for more – in addition to be incredibly gifted yogi & coach, she radiates a wonderful light and energy. Highly recommended!
