It’s no secret that life can be stressful. From little stresses like traffic to large ones like a pandemic, many of us struggle to process the impact of these events in a healthy way. Over the long term, our bodies bear the impact of this and may present symptoms like anxiety, depression, or chronic pain. So how do we start handling our stress in a healthy way?
Yoga therapy is a highly individualized process to help patients acknowledge and manage stress. Therapists work one-on-one with an individual to address a specific health challenge or manage wellness goals. Often, people who have challenges in a group class setting see great improvement through personalized Yoga Therapy.
