Yoga & Postural Therapy
Our non-medical Postural approach to common issues of chronic pain, joint degeneration, balance problems, and repetitive stress injuries is designed to address these problems and their root cause: how we use our bodies. Sitting, standing, and moving in unbalanced and dysfunctional ways over extended periods can lead to unconscious, problematic, and painful postural imbalance and movement restrictions.***
The more we repeat a specific posture or movement pattern, the more deeply learned those muscular patterns become. After a while, they become so deeply learned that we don't even have to think about them. Sometimes, we develop habits that stress our bodies–like sitting hunched over at a computer, compensating for an old injury, and many other reasons. The only way to change these deeply learned muscular dysfunctions at their root movement cause is to re-educate the nervous system through more optimal movement re-patterning.
We assess these issues and use therapeutic posture and movement re-patterning exercises to engage the nervous system in an active learning process. This approach uses exercise sequences involving specialized, focused, conscious movements designed to educate the body and the nervous system on how to release chronic muscle tension, stand, and move in more natural, efficient ways so that you aren’t continuing to put yourself in pain or doing damage to your body. This supports the body's natural healing process.
Our program is designed to help you systemically address and resolve the bodily imbalances at the root of pain, balance, and movement challenges and allow the body's natural healing processes to take over. All this is to help you attain your goals of relieving pain, shedding undue movement limitations, enjoying more healthy aging, and getting back to an active lifestyle.
