Yoga Therapy for Chronic Conditions & Illness

Meena Meditating

Yoga Therapy Classes Tailored to Treat Chronic Pain and Illness

Yoga is highly effective at treating pain caused by chronic pain or illness. At Yoga Care for You, our classes are specifically designed to work for you.  

The process starts when you reach out to me, Meena. First, I need to get to know you, your lifestyle, your health, and your goals. I might ask you some questions about your health history and your mobility (for example I will ask if you can move up or down), this will help give me a better idea of your abilities.  

You can either try in-person classes or online classes.  

In-person, classes have a total of eight people in the room and the room is spaced out, so you never feel crowded or overwhelmed. Online, I only teach four to six students at a time, because yoga in a digital space requires more attention from the instructor.  

Either format is highly effective against chronic illness or pain and my students often see results after just a few sessions. 

What is Yoga Therapy? 

Yoga therapy is a specifically designed yoga plan meant to help those touched by cancer or other chronic illnesses and pains find the path to wellness.  

I believe that everyone learns, grows, and recovers at their own pace. Class will include physical activity and education. My approach focuses on the concept of vinyasa yoga, or the practice of stringing postures and poses together so you can seamlessly move from one to the next while focusing on breathing.  

You will notice a draining of the lymphatic system, and I will give you instructions on sitting and how to get a breath of airiness. In addition, you will be instructed on the movement of your spine while breathing and I will give you some practices you can do at home every day.
