Therapeutic yoga is a gentle movement practice that focuses on reducing stress and promoting holistic health. Medical research has shown that the regular practice of yoga techniques positively affect the health of body and mind in a variety of ways.
Originating in India, this approach integrates gentle movements, mindful stretching, deep breathing, and relaxation techniques to promote overall wellness. Yoga will help activate your parasympathetic nervous system’s ability to support your healing process. You will make gains in strength, flexibility, immune function and stress reduction.
