Frequently asked questions

I've been doing Yoga for years. (Why would I want to do Yoga Therapy?)


Individualized attention is so often left out in today’s world of competitive, fast-paced, and performance-based yoga. Traditionally, yoga was taught one-on-one. This was to assure that the student’s needs were meet based upon age, body-type, spiritual goals, and injury history. The lack of this kind of teaching model, detailed assessment, and medical history has led to an epidemic of yoga-related injuries in today’s marketplace.* As we age, our pre-existing injuries and poor postural habits can begin to wreak havoc on our bodies. As yoga classes have increased in popularity, injuries have disproportionately increased as well. Many yogic practitioners are forced to discontinue practicing due to the neck, back, wrist, and knee injuries that have a compounding destructive effect. Working with Trevor can help you maintain your yoga practice over the course of a lifetime. Additionally, if you would like to teach yoga or be learn in a group environment, you can read about the Yoga Teacher Training and Lifestyle Submersion Course. *According to the NEISS yoga injuries have nearly doubled over the last four years. Further information on the rise in yoga-related injuries here> Yoga Therapy Sessions can help an experienced practitioner: • Refine basic and advanced postures • Learn proper range of motion for joints • Learn proper alignment to prevent injuries • Assessment of your Neuromuscular and Ayurvedic body-type and learn: • How to practice for your unique body-type and stage of life • How to maintain joint health • How to deepen meditative aspects of yoga to still the mind and emotions

Research shows Yoga Therapy can: • Be more effective then Physical Therapy for low back pain. • Decrease high blood pressure • Reduce depression • Help to manage anxiety • Help in managing Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome Simple yoga practices can help us with a long list of medical conditions and help us to feel great in our bodies again.

Yoga can be an excellent exercise for the non-athletic body-type. Yoga has been sold to us as something for skinny women in bikinis. This is false advertising! Yoga is for EVERYBODY!




I've got Acute or Chronic pain. (Is Yoga Therapy enough?)

Working with both Yoga Therapy and Massage is an outstanding way to address many kinds of chronic pain. It is always recommended to consult with your doctor. Yoga Therapy has helped many reduce chronic pain and stress. It is not a substitue for your doctors proffesional medical advice.




How is Yoga Therapy different than Physical Therapy


Yoga Therapy and Physical Therapy have key differences that are important to note: • Yogic Meditation and Mindfullness help to integrate Yoga into a whole system. • Yoga Therapist do not diagnose but we can offer assessments of the muscular skeletal system. • Yoga Therapy is excellent next-step in integrating your Physical Therapy treatments, stress reduction programs and dietary approaches. • In addition to Musculoskeletal techniques, Yoga Therapy uses Breathing, Meditation, and Mantra, and Ayurvedic Lifestyle choices to address physical AND emotional/mental imbalances.
