What is therapeutic yoga?
Therapeutic yoga offers the support of thousands of years of yogic practices combined with an understanding of common, modern treatment practices. Yoga therapy sessions may include movement, breathing exercises, visualization, guided relaxation, mantra, or other tools from the giant toolbox of yoga.
Yoga therapy takes a holistic view to invite healing through all of the complicated layers of being a person. Our goal is to help you find healing, process what’s stuck, and set a healthy foundation for your future.
At Unbound we specialize in the following:
- Trauma and post-traumatic stress
- Combat veterans
Q: Do I have to have an established yoga practice?
A: No, it’s not necessary to have any background in a yoga practice to dive into therapeutic yoga. We will meet you where you are right now and introduce practices that are in line with your goals and comfort level.
Q: How often should I have a yoga session?
A: As often as you’d like. We recommend checking in 1-2 weeks after your first session, then it’s up to you and your goals. It can be helpful to have a regularly scheduled session to continue forward momentum and to hold yourself accountable for your progress, though it’s not necessary for everyone.
Q: Is Unbound yoga accessible to people of faith?
A: Yes, Unbound yoga is a secular practice based in the traditions of yoga. We can integrate your beliefs into our practices if requested.
Q: Can I bring my child in for a session?
A: Yoga can be very helpful for teenagers, though we ask for parents to help hold their children accountable for their at-home practice. We are happy to work with a teenager with commitments from both teen and parent.
