FAQ

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOGA THERAPY AND YOGA?

This distinction has arisen because yoga as it is often now taught in the West focuses on a more athletic expression where students move quickly and have a focus on athletic strength, stamina and the ability to do difficult postures.

 

The practice of yoga has classically be one that facilitates a deeper connection to oneself, to life and to a higher level of consciousness. Yoga therapy focuses on supporting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and well-being. It’s practices are not based on how someone looks, or how much one can do; they are based on what brings ease, steadiness, health and healing to an individual.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A YOGA OR STRETCHING CLASS / SESSION?

Please wear comfortable clothing and possibly bring a layer, depending on the weather and the nature of what we may do. Socks are always good to wear at the end of a yoga/stretching practice.

 

Limit your food intake for 2 – 3 hours beforehand so that you don’t feel uncomfortable while doing a session. Eating an apple or something light an hour ahead of time is suggested in order to take the edge off, if class is at dinner or lunch time.

 

If you are having a one-on-one private session, props will be provided. If you are attending a class, please bring your own yoga mat if possible. Other props will be provided.

 

Out of consideration for others in a class setting, please be mindful of scents and body odor.
