Yoga Therapy

What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga Therapy is a holistic healing art that applies evidence-based yogic practices in the treatment of specific health conditions. It strives to achieve dynamic balance of the body-mind system, addressing the whole person.

Tamara is our Yoga Therapist here at OM. She has a degree in Kinesiology and has been in the industry for over a decade! She has a thorough understanding of kinetics and body mechanics, and you’ll know right away that you’re in good hands. Yoga Therapy is a modality Tamara uses to achieve balance throughout all of your body systems, creating an enjoyable experience – combining movement, breath and stillness so you feel your best, mind and body!

“It feels like I’ve known Tamara forever. She makes you feel so comfortable right from the start.” – Client Review 

 

Yoga Therapy is rooted in the practice and beliefs of yoga, but is not the same as a yoga class. A Yoga Therapist incorporates movement, meditation, guided imagery, and yoga postures in a 1:1 session, to improve and maintain physical and mental health. Yoga postures are used to address specific concerns or goals, and incorporate breathing techniques used to energize or calm.
