In a typical one-on-one yoga therapy session, you could expect:
A thorough intake inquiring into your medical history, along with your physical, mental, energetic, and spiritual needs. An analysis of your breath, posture, gait, and various yoga poses.
Physical poses are chosen and adapted for your needs along with breathing, meditation, and relaxation practice.
(yoga is like magic, but in order for the magic to work- you have to practice!)
