What does a Yoga Therapy session look like?
Yoga Therapy is highly creative, meeting your individual needs in the moment. While not exact, you can start to think of yoga therapy as traditional talk therapy meets physical therapy, using the tools of yoga all the time.
Expect a thorough intake process prior to your first visit to understand your current lifestyle, physical health, and emotional well-being, as well as your goals for yoga therapy. Sessions are 50 minutes in length.
No two sessions are ever the same as no day is ever the same, and YOU are constantly evolving. Here’s a glimpse of what we might do in a session:
Checking in with conversation and breath awareness
Physical movement, like yoga postures and somatic based movements to help ease tension in the body
Meditation and visualization to facilitate further healing
Personalized plans for practice in between sessions
Yoga therapy meets you wherever you are on any given day. I do not diagnose, treat, or cure, but rather facilitate your own innate ability to heal. We may spend our time on a yoga mat, seated in chairs, or working together via Zoom. It’s wherever your comfort lies in that day.
Want to learn more about yoga therapy?
We often come to yoga for more than the movement. We're searching. We want relief from anxiety, depression, loss, overwhelm, pain. We crave purpose. Connection.
When you join, you'll receive regular down to earth and practical guidance to incorporate yoga therapy into your every day. Learn how yoga can transform the way you live in your body, and ultimately your life.
Say hello. Let’s schedule a 20 minute complimentary consultation.
*Please note: The vast majority of Leanne’s clients are seen via Zoom online. For in person one:one work, Leanne will travel within 20 minutes of her residence in Rhode Island. While in person work is certainly beneficial, healing is healing and online work can provide tremendous support.
