Ouch! When everyday activities cause pain it is time for yoga therapy. Have you lashed out at a loved one for no apparent reason? Day to day living getting overwhelming?
It is time for Kelowna yoga therapy.
The medical field is more accepting than ever of yoga therapy as a legitimate curative process to supplement prescribed therapies, be they medicinal or rehabilitative. Many health professionals recommend and embrace yoga therapy as an integral part of a prescribed patient program. You don’t however need a prescription to take advantage of yoga therapy. Start with a beginner’s class, learn the fundamentals then you can target yoga therapy to cure what ails you.
In addition to curing what ails you, yoga therapy is also preventative. Do you suffer from stress headaches? Learn from your yoga therapist techniques you can apply for a quiet moment or two at the home or office to ward off that pain’s onset.
What yoga therapy does is adapt common yoga poses, breathing and spiritual awareness to specific maladies that each of us has in one form or another. Practicing yoga in either its beginning or advanced stages, you can learn to focus on the area(s) that trouble you most. It is important to remember that yoga is an individual endeavor and its practice is unique for each practitioner. Although in a class setting for the most part, you learn and improve at your own pace and take it with you after class and can practice at home. Yoga therapy, by natural extension, individualizes your specific practices to cure, relieve or prevent your specific health challenges.
It is important to remember that yoga therapy not only applies to physical ailments but the psychological and spiritual maladies as well. Yoga unifies body and mind to a single state of being and if it is stress and worry that afflict you, yoga therapy applies to you as well. Imagine just before a stressful event, like speaking in front of a crowd, you breathe deeply and empty your mind of the event and simply relax. For those who haven’t practiced yoga this may not be possible, but for those who have, you are much better prepared for that speech and for everyday life.
When everyday activities are performed without an “ouch” or you when you haven’t lashed out a loved one or when you easily cope with day to day living; then you’ve mastered yoga therapy.
