Theraputic Yoga Therapeutic Yoga is a package of a 1.5 hour massage/assessment, 1 hour private yoga class (according to the assessment) and regular follow-up yoga class. This yoga class is for people who had injuries, surgery, or have in general a small range of flexibility. Mary, Therapeutic Massage Therapist, and Gebhard, Authorized Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, use their knowledge and experience to create Therapeutic Yoga sequences or use modifications and props to enable the practitioner to practice according to her/his capability. This will help the practitioner to be able to practice yoga and to improve strength and flexibility. During the massage session Mary will assess what the exact condition is. Mary and Gebhard will than discuss and decide, which poses would help and how to practice to help reduce and counteract a certain condition.
By taking this class you will eventually strengthen your body and get more flexibility, depending on your capability and regularity of practice.
The practice is based on the classical Ashtanga Yoga system, of aligning breath, movement and gaze, called Tristhana. The concept of this class is, that a person with any issues can practice yoga and get the benefits of a consistent yoga practice.
