Yoga Therapy for Health

Imagine depending on your primary doctor when you need a specialist. Consider why healthcare protocols are delivered one-to-one, and prescriptions aren’t the same pill, dosage or frequency for everyone. Similarly, how many people could benefit from yoga delivered in a personal, targeted, accessible way that transcends the mat and integrates into career, family, health or illness? This is the purpose of yoga therapy.

Yoga therapy utilizes clinical evidence and global research to determine safe, effective, customized yoga protocols for various health concerns including:

chronic pain and stress management

cognitive processing and mental health

metabolism, inflammation, muscle and hormone balance

respiratory, digestive and sleep disturbances

healthy aging for balance and bone density

neurological and neuromuscular health

spinal and joint issues

illness and trauma support for heart disease, cancer, diabetes and MS

lifestyle management for challenges or changes

Yoga Therapy applies an interconnected biopsychosocial therapeutic intervention to optimize outcomes by integrating the mind, body and life, targeting imbalances that weaken the whole, and adapting for limitations, challenges and goals. Individuals participating in yoga therapy develop useful personal practices of self-awareness, mindfulness, breathwork, postures, movements, relaxation and meditation to recognize and overcome their imbalances.

IAYT-Certified Yoga Therapists have a minimum of 1000 hours of specialized yoga training with supervised clinical experience adapting yoga for biomedical, musculoskeletal and psychological health conditions beyond the 200 hours of yoga postures and techniques required of yoga instructors to teach classes.

Empowered 2 Wellness Yoga Therapy at Midtown Medical Park in Sarasota provides individual yoga therapy under the ownership of C-IAYT Yoga Therapist, Paula Morris. Consultations are free.
