Gary Kraftsow defines yoga therapy as: "the adaptation and application of Yoga techniques and practices to help individuals facing health challenges at any level manage their condition, reduce symptoms, restore balance, increase vitality, and improve attitude." I agree with this definition and have personally experienced many of these benefits with my own practice. 

Yoga is an ancient tool for health and well being that is available to people from all backgrounds and faiths. The practice should support you in practicing your way and relieve tension, rather than causing any.  If you have questions about what yoga might be able to do for you, please call Dharmini at 906.251.0032 for more information.

Group Therapy

Scheduled Sessions

Check out the group sessions where you can work on a specific concern with a group atmosphere to support a specific need such as:

osteoporosis - Yoga For Bones

preparing to attend a standard class -Yoga Foundations

or to do some deep healing - Restorative Yoga

Private

To focus on your needs

Sometimes we want to get into the heart of the issue or tissue by working one-on-one. These sessions last about an hour and a quarter and can consist of discussion, practice of asana (poses), relaxation, meditation, and strategizing. Basically, it is therapy with yoga as our modality. The ancient teachings of yoga guide us in preparing a practice suited to your needs and comfort level. Not all sessions involve poses, but they can. These sessions can be done in person or by phone or Skype. 

Special Groups

For your office or friends

Do you have a group who want to prepare sessions for just you? A special arrangement can be made. Such groups in the past have been for osteoporosis, low back pain and issues that come up with sitting in the office all day, and ship workers who are bent over all day. Sometimes a workplace has specific stresses or injuries associated with it. Yoga is a great practice to address such specific concerns in an atmosphere of fun and relaxation.

Yoga For Bones

A classic favorite for people with osteoporosis, or for those with joint pain. This provides a therapeutic method for increasing pressure into the bones and joints in a safe manner, with gradually increasing intensity. This journey into “more than just poses” offers clients a method for managing symptoms and increasing desire for the practice. This is not a beginning class, though. Some of the poses may be quite challenging for beginners to master. We take it step-by-step. You receive the skills and support to become consistent in practice, and to know how to care for your own bones and joints. (Not a chair class. However, inquire for appropriate options.

Core Emerging

Learn the techniques to begin to build your core, and to maintain it. For our purposes, the core refers to the physical inner core of the body, as well as the core of your own life. We allow the natural symmetry between the core of emotion, meaning, and physical structure to begin to echo and communicate. The results are felt within the body for greater health, and resonate out so we can offer who we are to the people around us. This work is deep both physically and in meaning. Together we create a rhythm in our practice. We get to that core emerging. Chair version available.

Re-Emerging

Sometimes after taking time off from yoga practice, we find the body retains some things and not others. It can be challenging to know how to regain the ability to move and make a connection with your yoga practice again. This course is intended to be more slow-paced, re-establish a love of the practice, and to help cover all the bases of practice so you can feel confident attending a class again. It is also a great refresher for the fun of it.
