Yoga for Medicine

Yoga for medicine is a modality that promotes deep muscle relaxation, reduces  joint pain, stretches the whole body and releases tight fascia. The personalized one on one or small group sessions are performed on a yoga mat and the individual is taken through a progression of yoga stretches while being supported by the practitioner. The yoga sessions can be customized. So, no matter if you are a seasoned athlete wanting to increase flexibility, prevent injury, improve balance/coordination; if you seek assistance with peak performance; or are someone who is looking to reduce joint pain, muscle soreness, and stress; this is for you! 

Everyone can benefit from improving circulation, and balancing the body energetically. 

Medical Assisted Yoga is a great way to focus on specific areas that may require more attention and assistance than a typical “cookie cutter” yoga class. This will especially benefit those who have never tried yoga, and worry that “I’m not flexible enough,” Medical Assisted Yoga is a great way to start to work out the tightness that are a result of normal everyday living.
