Yoga therapy differs from traditional yoga in that it addresses psychological and mental health issues, in addition to physical complaints or problems. Based on traditional Hatha yoga science, Lifeologie’s psychotherapeutic yoga therapy focuses on the powerful relationship between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems – eg: the flight or fight response. Our minds and bodies respond to stressors without checking with us to see if the response will help. This leads to a cycle of escalating symptoms, which can be almost impossible to break.
Rather than focusing on fitness-based yoga methods and practices, yoga therapists first assess clients’ emotional and mental health needs through listening, questioning, observing and consultation with the therapeutic team.
Yoga therapists look for ways to help their clients reduce or manage their mental or physical symptoms, improve their functioning and overcome frustrating challenges. After this initial assessment, yoga therapists establish appropriate goals, develop a practice intervention, and then teach clients to practice that intervention. Yoga therapists choose yoga techniques that will specifically benefit individual clients.
