Dr. Dilsworth completed her Yoga Therapy training through the Inner Peace Yoga Therapy Program. Yoga Therapy is a one-on-one session that incorporates physical activity to achieve a holistic mind-body approach to wellness.
Yoga Therapy is the ultimate combination of yogic practices and principles combined to meet emotional and psychological needs. A yoga therapy session is designed to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the individual through a more demanding and interactive treatment protocol
The treatment can be tailored for a wide variety of physical and emotional challenges, and is a powerful adjunct to counseling, chiropractic, physical therapy and other traditional medicinal treatments. Yoga therapy is particularly helpful for: chronic illness, pain and mobility issues; depression and/or anxiety; addictions; eating disorders, and much much more. For more benefits, see Dr. Timothy McCall: Yoga as Medicine, the Science and Practice of Yoga Therapy.
Unlike yoga classes, yoga therapy will address your personal characteristics based on personal needs as well as Ayurvedic Principles.
What to Expect
A series of three sessions spaced a week or two apart is ideal. The first assessment will include a structural assessment, ayurvedic assessment, and an individualized take home practice. Each subsequent session will build upon the last and you will leave with a three-month practice. If you choose to return prior to three months, you are welcome; however, the idea is to empower you to establish your own practice and find personal strength in that practice.
Three sessions are ideal for yoga therapy. This will allow time for practicing strategies and getting additional feedback to ensure you are meeting the needs of the assessment
