Yoga is an ancient, sustainable practice created to unite the body, mind, and spirit. It is meant to be a life-long practice, leading to a deeper understanding of self, while strengthening our relationships with others. A consistent yoga practice can help stretch what is tight, strengthen what is weak, and allow our bodies to move more efficiently in our everyday functional activities. It promotes a sense of calmness and clarity.
Physical therapy is an evidenced-based practice based upon western medicine. It embraces a scientific understanding of the human body. Physical therapists utilize extensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and movement analysis to help people regain functional movement, reduce their level of pain, and learn new skills in order to experience a more full and energetic lifestyle.
PhysioYoga is a unique blend of these two respected disciplines. It differs from Yoga Therapy because it is delivered by a licensed Physical Therapist, with hours of training and years of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of movement disorders and imbalances.
PhysioYoga differs from a traditional physical therapy because it uses yoga philosophy, breathing techniques, and yoga postures as the primary approach to wellness. The focus is on self-empowerment and self-healing rather than a “prescription approach” related to a diagnosis.
PhysioYoga is NOT meant to replace traditional physical therapy.Please consult your primary healthcare professional prior to starting any new or different physical activity.
