Therapeutic Yoga

SportsFit Physical Therapy's vision includes offering an array of treatment options in order to obtain the most optimized recovery. Yoga therapy is one form of therapeutic exercise that is used at SportFit to enhance the outcome of treatment for our clients. Individuals intending to return to a healthy yoga practice, ones requiring mobility, flexibility, and strengthening may be assigned therapeutic yoga exercises in order to better prepare for their future goals. Yoga therapy at SportsFit is performed on a one-on-one basis under the supervision of a doctor of physical therapy and with specific goals and intentions based on each individual's unique circumstances. Clients will learn to complete a yoga flow and are taught modifications based on their injury, and lean the proper way of performing poses and yoga techniques. At SportsFit, we believe that this individualized, supervised, and guided practice will allow our clients to safely return to a full yoga practice. If you intend to return to yoga and have had difficulty returning to your practice, schedule a session with a SportsFit yoga therapist.

Therapy is creating the reality of utilizing self knowledge in order to treat a source of impairment. Yoga therapy is applied to recover from injury and in order to maintain health. In yoga, healing occurs by movement and by promoting the flow or breath (prana). SportsFit yoga therapy sessions are offered one-on-one in order to assure proper form and to avoid common mistakes made when personal attention is not made in the practice of yoga. Yoga therapy leads to a better understanding of our unique body and to gain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance. At SportsFit, our belief is that the body is not just matter, and in order to treat any dysfunction, a multi-disciplinary approach which, includes attention to the mind and the body, is required for a complete and optimized recovery.
