You can expect your yoga therapist to tailor your session to meet your individual requirements. Your therapist will take your overall health as well as your fitness levels into consideration during the session.
During your first session, your yoga therapist will conduct an assessment that aims to identify your health issues as well as to review your physical capabilities. You can also expect your therapist to ask you questions about why you are seeking therapy.
This assessment is used by your therapist to customize a treatment plan to meet your unique requirements. Together with your therapist, you’ll decide on how often to schedule sessions. After the initial assessment is completed, you can expect to go through a series of breathing exercises, physical postures, and meditations. Once you learn these techniques, your therapist will ask you to incorporate them into your daily life.
This type of therapy provides the most benefit if you practice what you learn during the sessions at home. These sessions differ from a traditional yoga class as they’re usually conducted one-on-one or in small groups.
