Yoga therapy is based on three primary concepts – exercise, breathing, and meditation. Traditional yoga can be traced back thousands of years to ancient India. It is a highly effective stress reducer that inspires mindfulness, confidence, and clarity. Yoga has many benefits. It can improve circulation, digestion, posture, breathing, pain management, sleep, and flat feet. Those who practice yoga may see an increase in flexibility, strength, balance, peacefulness, energy, bone strength, and elasticity of lungs. It can also relieve asthma, arthritis pain, menstrual irregularity/pain, and headaches.
Our yoga programs blend traditional yoga styles such as Kripalu, Iyengar, and restorative yoga with physical therapy, current movement science, and motor control/learning theories. Medically targeted yoga programs are tailored for pre and postnatal women, oncology patients, athletes, seniors, asthmatics, and individual suffering from digestive disorders, pain, arthritis, migraines, stress, and osteoporosis.
RITWW offers medically targeted yoga therapy in group classes and one-on-one sessions.
Learn how to perform yoga safely, and work with pain or injury, not against it. Group classes are small to allow for individual attention and a supportive environment.
One-on-one sessions utilize yoga based physical therapy with experienced instructors who will show you how to incorporate yoga into your plan of care. Each program is tailored for individual needs such as musculoskeletal issues, pain, post-surgery healing, areas of weakness, and particular muscle groups that may require stretching and/or relaxing.
