Yoga

3

Yoga has been providing astounding benefits for more than five thousand years to millions of people. Ancient sages wrote scriptures on Yoga as a remedy to people’s sufferings. The suffering has been always there irrespective of ancient or modern times. Hence, the problem is not modernism. AYURYOGA merges the principles of Yoga with the dynamics of modern life. A healthy body has a healthy mind.

This maxim has a universal appeal and application because, once health is lost everything is lost. A sick mind or body cannot reflect one’s real nature or achieve any success in any field what so ever.

AYURYOGA uses the elements of Yoga to heal and to ease the Modern life. There are many Yoga techniques in the scriptures which help to achieve supreme peace, health and happiness. Generally, somebody uses one Yoga technique and popularizes it. The masses will follow it irrespective of appropriateness of the technique to them in the present situation.For example one may do Power Yoga or Hot Yoga without knowing whether it suits him or not. It is like when you lose the way, looking at a map on the road side in which there is no indication of where you are. If you are not aware where you are, even an accurate map would not help you. You may use a map of US to find direction when you are lost in India! In the same way you may do different techniques of Yoga and get lost in the process. Hence it is important to know where you are than to get directions. AYURYOGA raises your awareness to fix where you are and helps to tailor various techniques for you. 

AYURYOGA is based on Patanjali’s Astanga Yoga and imparts the eight limbs in the modern context and consists of:

Live in the Present
Start Inside-Out
Do Svadharma (own dharma)
Regulate Energy
Drop the Baggage
Focus on Dharma (purpose in life)
Enjoy Silence
Allow Transformation

AYURYOGA uses techniques by which you overcome the bondages of the body by restraining senses, mastering the mind; and makes you harmonious with nature, energizes you to face the challenges of life, removes the mala (impurity), viksepa (distractions of mind), and ävarana (ignorance) and helps you to experience supreme peace, health and happiness.

It’s popular these days to say, “yoga is for everybody.” But is that really true?!!!

Can it really be practiced by everyone? Even those who, due to age, inflexibility, weight, injury, or need to practice completely from a chair?

Absolutely !!!

In fact, seniors may be able to get more out of yoga than most students. Since the brain’s two hemispheres are used more equally as we age, seniors can bring a better overall awareness to yoga, thus utilizing the mind-body connection more effectively than younger students.

Keep in mind that many seniors who are physically fit have no limitations when it comes to practicing yoga, except maybe using adaptation devices that many younger people use as well, such as blocks, straps or just a chair. However, for those with balance issues, people looking to start slowly, or anyone who would just feel more confident in starting out this way, chair yoga may be the way to go.

It not only has the benefits of regular yoga, such as helping with stress, pain, and fatigue, but it can also help with joint lubrication, balance, and even age-specific issues like menopause and arthritis.

Gentle Yoga is suitable for people of all ages, but can be especially helpful for seniors. Gentle movement and stretching through beginners yoga poses can reduce swelling in joints while increasing joint mobility and improving balance which helps in reducing falls. Senior’s Yoga improves cardiovascular health, aids digestion and elimination, improves sleep and lowers blood pressure and cholesterol. It has also been shown to speed recovery from surgery and also aid in the grieving process. One of the great things about yoga is that unlike most physical sports or disciplines you can start at any age. You don’t need to be physically fit or active to take up yoga.

Few people retain their strength and vitality in later years which makes yoga classes an ideal way to rejuvenate the body and revitalize the mind. Yoga is a very gentle and relaxing technique that helps relieve stiffness and tension from all parts of the body. Whether you’re 55, 85, or dont feel comfortable in a regular yoga class, it is never too late to take up a yoga practice.

Bring a yoga mat and your partner or best friend and experience for yourself the miraculous benefits of the ancient healing practice of Yoga.

What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga therapy uses the tools and techniques of yoga  (movement, breathing practices, deep relaxation and meditation techniques) to focus on an individual’s or small groups needs.   Practices are adapted to the client’s particular health issues, schedules and frequency of visits.

Yoga therapists do not diagnose health issues.  The goals of a yoga therapist include working with healthcare professionals who have diagnosed medical issues and consider yoga to be a complementary therapy.  Yoga therapists will also listen to individuals concerns and work with them to teach them practices that they can do on their own. Here are some of the health issues that I have had positive results with using yoga and mindfulness techniques:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • ADD & ADHD
  • Anger Management
  • Memory Issues
  • Panic Attacks
  • Chronic Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cancer Recovery
  • Back Pain
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • High Functioning Autism
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

The movements, breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation techniques are helpful for improving:

  • Overall stress response (immune, endocrine and nervous system all working together)
  • Sleep issues
  • Strength & Flexibility
  • Energy
  • Physical and Mental Balance
  • Digestive Issues
  • Focus & Concentration
  • Joint Health
  • Constipation
  • Weight Management
  • And more…

Individual Yoga Therapy

A private yoga therapy session can be just one session, a series of sessions or on-going sessions depending on the needs of the client.  The first session includes an assessment as well as recommended beginning practices.  A client will complete a Client Information Form and submit this to the therapist prior to the session or bring it with them to the session.  The client and therapist discuss the information on the form. A yoga therapist does not diagnose health issues.  Based on the information on the form and the discussion, the therapist chooses a series of movements, breathing practices and relaxation and/or meditation techniques for the client.

Small Group Yoga Therapy

Create your own small group of 2 to 12 people. 

The therapist will create a custom class based on the health needs of the group.
