Builds strength and awareness
The International Associated of Yoga Therapists was founded in 1989, and the practice of Yoga Therapy hit the ground running! It is continuing to grow as a popular, holistic approach! We are excited to bring this discipline (and Tamara) to share with all of you at OM.
Yoga Therapy at OM
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.
During your first session with Tamara, our lovely Yoga Therapist at OM, will complete a full assessment. Together, you will determine what your goals are, discuss your overall health, wellbeing and lifestyle/limitations and create a treatment plan!
The goal of Yoga Therapy is to empower you to be your healthiest, happiest self! Schedule a complimentary consultation with Tamara to learn more about Yoga Therapy and how it can benefit you or schedule your first appointment today!
Tamara is a Registered Kinesiologist and Certified Yoga Therapist who has been in the industry for over a decade! She also works with our Registered Physiotherapist, Chris, to carry out our in-house Physiotherapy programs!
