that is fulfilling, exciting and sustainable. This work
is about empowerment, and feeling strong and
capable in one’s body.
The /Ascent /Approach
Our /Approach starts with getting you out of pain quickly, we then help you gain mobility and control so you can move better, after that we focus on building injury resilience so you can stay active for the long term.
In Yoga Therapy, we spend the time to focus on understanding WHY one might benefit from yoga, and working within a person-centered approach— have the yoga fit the person, not the person fit the yoga.
Sessions are designed to create an evidence-based, but also wellness-based space, to facilitate safe, sustainable and an exciting individualized practice for each person.
All yoga therapy sessions are provided through a trauma-informed lens, and are presented to build a space for comfort and safety through breathing, meditation and gentle movement. Any physical restrictions found within the body can be addressed through soft tissue therapy and joint mobilizations. Physical limitations and difficulties can then be worked on through various yoga postures and flows.
