What is Yoga Therapy RX?

There are many different types of yoga out there and even at Purple Yoga, we will pull various lineages to create our unique class schedule. Now you will see a new program arrive at Purple Yoga! Yoga Therapy RX is a program designed for those of you that are dealing with health challenges--whether it's physical, mental or emotional. Yoga Therapy is the marriage between Western medicine and Eastern philosophy to empower the progression of overall health. Let's face it, not every yoga class is suitable for students with injuries of limitations. At least, not right away! As yoga therapists, Noelle and Kim will educate you on what postures are beneficial vs. harmful based on your physical condition. Our goal is to get you into a group class with the knowledge of exactly how to care for your body. After all, it's the only place you have to live! The first Yoga Therapy session usually takes 90-minutes to review your history, perform an evaluation that tests your range of motion, lung capacity, mental and emotional health, and learn yoga techniques specifically designed to suit your needs. This session closely resembles a physical therapy or rehabilitation appointment; however, what sets it apart is specific breathing exercises and relaxation techniques that open up the body's capacity to heal itself. If you are looking for a personal yoga program that will improve your overall health and well-being, Yoga Therapy RX sessions could be the right fit for you. If you are interested in learning more, please come to the FREE informational session on October 6th in Long Beach! Noelle and Kim will be there to answer all of your questions. In addition, if you'd like to register for this new program, please email us at info@purpleyoga.org to schedule your appointment.
