2/23 Yoga Therapy for Sleep
February 23, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm$20
Experience Yoga Therapy
Over 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders. Approximately 10 million people in the U.S. use prescription sleep aids, estimating $15.9 billion is spent in national health care costs. Since there is no one solution for all sleep issues a holistic approach is recommended.
Yoga Therapists work with students one-on-one to assist them in creating positive change in all aspects of life. Whether the student is experiencing a specific health condition such as herniated discs, sciatica, depression, anxiety, addiction etc., or is looking to upgrade outdated habits; a Yoga Therapist is equipped to develop customized practices to meet the students needs, achieve goals and faithfully oversee the students progress as they move out of imbalance and towards a state of optimal health and joy.
Yoga Therapists utilize a multi-dimensional model to understand the clients specific needs, assessing physical, mental, emotional and energetic wellbeing and then offer tools at every level to improve relationships, lifestyle, career, self-care practices, diet, posture, musculoskeletal conditions, lung capacity, stress management, digestion, communication, mental clarity, mindset, emotional patterns, perception of reality and spiritual practices. In effect, Yoga Therapists assess and treat the whole person and are considered lifestyle management experts!
