Yoga Therapy

We can define Yoga Therapy as a source of pure energy  and well-being. 

It is the attention and care that  our being, physical and spiritual,  needs and deserves.

It's the time we have to dedicate to a truly fulfilling and fully lived quality of life, or much more simply to a happy life full of potential and awareness.

Yoga Therapy is for everyone and takes care of any need, be it physical, mental or of any other nature.

Yoga Therapy sessions take place strictly on an individual level and are studied  to dedicate the necessary attention to physical and mental imbalances, which need attention in order to bring the person to a state of well-being.

It can be defined as a therapy suitable for improving our body, our lifestyle and allowing us to materialize our most coveted expectations.

This practice brings the body and mind back into balance, and can lead to a good recovery or significant changes in the quality of life.

 

Today we have finally come to appreciate this form of therapy, considering it necessary and indispensable in all of our lives to  to cope with the constant demands of an increasingly chaotic and complex everyday life.

Yoga Therapy  begins to be increasingly appreciated and understood also by the world of traditional medicine.

The acquired knowledge highlights how Yoga is much more than simple Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, Yoga Nidra, Mantra and Meditation.

Yoga della risata

Yoga is now also implemented in hospital practices, schools as well as drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and obviously for rehabilitation purposes for an important number of pathologies.  

 

Lately Yoga Therapy has been widely used in nursing homes. It seems impossible, given the positions that appear unattainable, how much the elderly can derive significant benefits from this practice, obviously if practiced and supervised by a Yoga Therapist.

  • Who is Yoga Therapy suitable for?
    For those who want to learn to breathe better, have more energy. For those with musculoskeletal and neurological problems/pathologies. For those who need a post-surgery rehabilitation program or preparation for surgery. For those with heart and respiratory problems. For those who want to better manage emotions, anxiety and stress. For those seeking deep rest, the method that uses Yoga Nidra-therapy is particularly suitable in this case. To rediscover a certain serenity and joy in life.
  • Who is the Yoga Therapist
    Yoga therapists, in addition to knowing the ancient discipline of yoga, have scientific knowledge achieved by obtaining a diploma issued by the International Association of Yoga Therapists and are fully present in hospitals, rehabilitation clinics and other structures where rehabilitation personnel are needed. The Yoga therapist often collaborates with the general practitioner or with specialists such as cardiologists, internists, urologists, oncologists, physiotherapists, osteopaths and psychotherapists.
  • The first date
    The first meeting is dedicated to getting to know each other. It will be important to learn your medical / health history, your wishes, your motivations and your expectations. Your posture will be carefully evaluated, as well as particular attention will be given to how you move and especially how you breathe. These assessments are important to be able to acquire a complete picture of your person and any problems in movement or other impediments. Of course, all sessions are completely pain-free. You will be explained all aspects of Yoga Therapy, specific movement techniques and exercises that will be based solely and exclusively on you. The correct breathing techniques will be discussed and explained (Pranayama). In some cases various relaxation techniques can be used such as visualization, guided meditation and Yoga Nidra. All of these methods are essential for Yoga Therapy to bring improvements to your well-being and help reduce the symptoms and causes that cause pain and discomfort. Sometimes it may be appropriate to perform physically intense yoga classes such as Vinyasa/ Vinyasa Flow, focusing on breathing and meditation. All appointments are held privately and are suitable both for those approaching Yoga for the first time and for people who have been practicing for longer.
  • The path of Yoga Therapy
    Yogatherapy is not limited to solving specific pain or discomfort but aims to restore the general well-being of the body and mind. The Yogatherapeutic path must gradually be calibrated on the person in a fluid and natural way and the changes made in a calibrated way and based on the client's natural progress. All sessions last approximately 75 minutes. The number of sessions required can be chosen by the client, which in itself is not a time-consuming process, but surely for someone it could become a practice that will become part of life and which they will not be able to do without thanks to the considerable benefits that this practice is able to give us. Yogatherapy should not be seen as a hasty method to resolve any discomfort; it should rather be experienced as a way of embarking on one's own journey that leads to recovery or greater well-being, a feeling of total harmony and wholeness. The improvements are already perceptible after the first session but it is above all in the long term that you will be able to experience all the benefits, which will make you feel fitter, physically and mentally stronger, in perfect balance with yourself. Yogatherapy is for anyone who wishes to experience greater well-being and does not require any previous experience in the practice of Yoga, anyone can approach this discipline and benefit from it. This is the great gift of Yoga.

We are our change, 
Yoga is the medium. 

Life leads us to think that a good balance and well-being are dictated by factors such as, for example, the environment, family, social status and more, but if you pay attention to these  they are_cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ all  “external” factors.

It goes without saying that, in case of need, if we wanted to change some aspect this would not be possible instantly, precisely because we should have the possibility to change what surrounds us and does not directly belong to us.

Fortunately, however, we can change the way we live these experiences, how we relate to them, and how to face them with awareness. 

 

And here is the turning point, here is the real change. 

 

Just learn how to handle this new “power”. 

Yoga comes to our aid.

I met Wendy by chance because I had back and shoulder problems.  Wendy immediately entered my heart, for her smile, for her professionalism, her skill and she makes everything easy and very possible for you to do.  I already had experiences with yoga, but the Yoga Therapy she does is absolutely another world.  It makes you enter another atmosphere, it makes you realize what you are doing, the reason why you do it and I especially like it when it takes me to another dimension with its relaxation, Yoga Nidra. My experience has been magical.  In my opinion whoever tries a lesson with her will never abandon her, just as I will never abandon her again, unless she decides to change city.
