Yoga Psychotherapy

Holistic Healing on and off the mat

 

Yoga Psychotherapy merges together two powerful, effective, complimentary and transformational modalities. Combining psychotherapy with yoga creates a holistic approach, treating and healing that which is interconnected: psyche (mind), soma (body), and pneuma (soul). 

 

Yoga and psychotherapy both positively affect the nervous system, contributing to greater overall health and well-being. Both of these practices also tap into the brain’s neuroplasticity- the brain’s ability to form new neural networks. In other words, your brain has the remarkable ability to re-wire itself in response to changes in thought, environment, behavior, and other new situations. This optimizing, reorganizing, and regenerating organ is capable of significant self-repair and healing. 

 

Because we hold everything in the body (especially trauma), by moving it and opening it up you can work to release powerful mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual blocks. Both the practice of psychotherapy and yoga create an inward shift of our attention and allows you to become more attuned to yourself, and to others.
