FAQ About Yoga Therapy

What is the difference between Yoga Therapy and a regular yoga class?

Yoga Therapy is specifically designed to address your health conditions and challenges. A yoga class can also be therapeutic but does not necessarily seek to tailor a practice for you. A Yoga Therapy session, one-on-one or in a small group, can focus on specific concerns with the intention of bringing ease, relief, and enhanced healing. Yoga Therapy can be used to achieve whatever goals the client and therapist set forth that work toward a state of well-being.

How many sessions will I need?

Each body is unique, and every case is different. Most clients will experience some benefit after just one session. Depending on your individual needs and concerns, more sessions may be necessary or desirable. I generally recommend a minimum of three (3) sessions, but will work with you to design a plan that is best suited to meet your goals.

Where do sessions take place?

Yoga therapy sessions can occur in your own home or in our Shrewsbury location. Sessions at our location will be provided in a private room fully equipped with all the props necessary to support your practice.

How much time will I have to dedicate to my home practice?

Ideally, clients will devote at least 20-30 minutes daily to their home practice. The therapist will make every effort to accommodate your unique circumstances and time constraints. To that end, the therapist may recommend “mini practices” that can be incorporated into your current schedule. Part of each Yoga Therapy session will be devoted to discussing how the client’s home practice is proceeding so that adjustments can be made. 

What if I can’t afford this service?

Wisdom Tree Yoga (WTY) understands that the cost of private yoga therapy may be prohibitive for some. In an effort to make our services available to everyone, WTY offers regular, therapeutic classes for back care, bone health and arthritis taught by Beverly Davis-Baird, a certified yoga therapist. WTY also offers special packages for Yoga Therapy at a discounted rate. WTY reserves the right to consider and make other financial accommodations on a case-by-case basis.
