What is Svaroopa® Yoga Therapy ?
Yoga therapy are individual sessions that provide pain relief, speed healing from recent illness, injury or surgery, promote greater relaxation and reduce stress. It is beneficial for anyone in physical or emotional pain or for anyone who wants to maintain optimal health.
Sweet Pose offers two kinds of yoga therapy
Embodyment® Yoga Therapy
It is a simple therapy where you rest comfortably on your back, with your legs supported on props so your body can soften and spine can relax. The therapist places her hands on specific muscles of your spine, which allow for the release of tension in these muscles. These tensions block your body’s innate healing ability. Embodyment® allows your own healing energy to flow freely through your body and your mind. A session is completed with a reclined spinal twist pose and a gentle massage up the length of the spine. The experience is truly relaxing for the body and the mind.
Svaroopa® Yoga Therapy
Deep release of tightness in the body (hips, back, knees, shoulders, neck) using hands-on adjustments, holding the body, support with props and yogic breathing.
Specific adjustments, poses and props are chosen according to the specific needs of the client. The experience is deeply nurturing and healing on all levels. Yoga Therapy is great for beginners or experienced students who want to explore more opening. This approach emphasizes "core release", beginning with the tailbone, into and through your sacrum, lumbar spine and into your ribcage and neck.
Is yoga therapy for me?
One or two sessions can be very helpful for a regular Svaroopa yoga student to get deeper openings.
If you are not practicing Svaroopa yoga, at least 3 sessions are recommended to achieve relief in pain whether it be physical or emotional.
If you are in chronic or severe pain often more sessions are recommended. Inquire about Overlap healing sessions.
Embodyment® Yoga therapy and Svaroopa® yoga therapy for treating pain does not replace traditional medicine care. If symptoms persist, consult your medical doctor.
