About Therapeutic Yoga Classes

Iyengar Yoga Therapy Classes allow students who have back, shoulder, neck, knee, organic ailments, or emotional and stress related problems to work with an experienced and specially trained teacher in a small class setting.

Students will learn how to practice a healing adaptive yoga program that should enable them to make progress in overcoming their ailments or injuries. This highly individualized work has been developed over the past 60 year by BKS Iyengar in India where Laura studies.

Each therapy class begins with slow, passive ranges of motion to see how each part is moving and feeling during normal ranges of motion. The yoga sequence is carefully selected and taught to provide safe strengthening and flexibility tools for these areas; and develop individual home practice sequences to balance the joints. Many students find they can expand their activities outside the studio, which may be limited by an injury, weakness or limitation.


About Therapeutic Yoga

Yoga Therapy is based on using yoga poses in a modified fashion - often with yoga props - to gently, safely, and gradually get students to start accessing their body with more awareness. As the practice progresses over time, there is healing and students begin to reduce the level of modifications and may even advance from a remedial/recovering practice to a strengthening and more general practice or group class.

In therapeutic yoga, postures are modified and carefully sequenced for use in treating a wide range of health conditions such as:

  • Depression
  • Head aches
  • Grief
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Arthritis
  • Respiratory problems
  • Cardiovascular conditions
  • Digestive problems
  • Injury of knees, neck and shoulders, and lower back
