We have held so much in our bodies. Formal talk therapy is effective in assisting clients to become aware of maladaptive patterns along the way, attachments that do not serve us, and in gaining greater awareness of self. When therapy and bodywork combine the opportunity for release, shifting and release can occur. Yoga-informed psychotherapy offers a combination of therapy and gentle breathwork, movement, and guidance from the practitioner.
What is yoga-informed psychotherapy?
Yoga-informed psychotherapy bridges therapy and yoga together through movement and discussion. The goal of this practice varies and past clients have reported feeling a deep release of emotion and improved sleep. Clients have also described their sessions to provide a deeply informative experience which may lead to exploring psychotherapy or a deeper desire for consistent yoga practice.
