Therapeutic Yoga Practice
Taught by De West
Therapeutic Yoga Practice teaches us to work with the natural intelligence of our bodies through a series of gentle, focused and healing movements. This simple, profound approach calms the mind and relaxes the body, creating a safe space for us to build a foundation for creating change.
Therapeutic Yoga Practice is a movement practice that allows people of all ages and abilities to experience a positive, relaxed and transforming experience in both body and mind.The Therapeutic Yoga Practice is an individualized process of working with one’s own body, mind, and nervous system. The Practice establishes an overall sense of safety and well being in the participants, resulting in less physical discomfort and stress, and more energy and openness. This practice addresses not just the muscular/skeletal body, but layers of circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine, organ and nervous systems as well.
The vision of this Therapeutic Yoga Practice is to build a community of individuals with a common interest in deepening awareness within themselves and in relation to others through a movement practice. The hopeful outcome of the practice will be a life of greater reflection, kindness and compassion. The practice and offerings are uniquely designed to be inclusive to all who are interested and open to possibility.
Why Therapeutic Yoga Practice?
The practice is about quieting our busy mind. Our busy mind is an expression of our pains, fears, and blockages that bounce around and distract us from what really matters. Therapeutic Yoga poses, sequences, and breathing exercises are our guide to understanding ourselves in a state of well-being that permeates all areas of our lives.
Why is it a healing practice?
The practice allows for better function in the body and a deeper connection between mind, body and spirit. By correcting old patterns and releasing blockages that no longer serve us, we create greater awareness of our physical and emotional health.
