Hi this is Nydia.
If you have made it to this website and page, it is likely that you have a pre-existing medical and/or orthopedic challenge and are interest in learning more about how Complementary Alternative Methods (CAM) can assist you in reaching your overall health and wellbeing goals. You might have heard that Yoga can be effective to relieve certain chronic conditions and may be wondering if there is help for you and/or your loved one in their current situation. You may or may not know what Therapeutic Yoga is. No worries……..
Let me tell you about what you can expect when you schedule a private therapeutic yoga assessment with me.
We begin our time together in conversation…which includes a detailed history of your past physical and medical adventures. You will move through a whole body assessment that gives me information about your posture, range of motion, overall torso and extremity strength, mobility & flexibility, quality and efficiency of your breathing, quality and strength of your core abdominal and shoulder girdle stabilizers, past injury history and overall readiness for a yoga practice. By the end of the assessment, we will have reviewed and I will have instructed you in gentle activities that might benefit your individual body in the case that any of the above mentioned areas were deficient or in need of attention. If you have a specific past medical history, we will take this into consideration and adjust the assessment and instruction as needed. The Therapeutic Yoga Assessment process helps me know more about you and what experiences have led you to be at the place you are currently and also creates a space to determine what path we will develop together to help you move towards the place(s) that you want to move forward to in the future. Then we will be able to decide together what your next step is in your practice.
Some individuals will go home to practice the techniques that I have taught them to improve on deficient areas (information is provided on a handout with step by step instructions). Some individuals will be ready and eligible to attend group yoga classes onsite at my private studio on the schedule that I have recommended. There are other individuals who will schedule additional private sessions as they request or as needed in order to meet their individual goals.
In a few instances, there may be individuals who already have a consistent yoga practice that may be interested in determining whether they are progressing appropriately with their practice. They may be recovering from an illness, surgery, injury or may be experiencing a movement limitation. When this is the case, we might go directly into assessing a variety of yoga postures to create modifications (as needed) to meet the individuals specific needs.
The cost of the private therapeutic yoga sessions is $175/hour. Our first session (initial assessment) occasionally takes longer than an hour…the cost is the same, I just like to make sure that we schedule enough time to address all the areas that need attention. I am currently available for scheduling on Wednesdays after the noon hour and occasionally in the early evening, as needed. Please contact me at the studio at (210) 325-4443 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information or speak with me about your particular situation.
I hope that you found this information helpful.
