What exactly does a yoga therapist do? 

First, the yoga therapist performs a formal health intake and also a bio-psycho-social-spiritual assessment with the client.  This assessment includes discussing the functioning and sensations in the physical body and the breathing patterns.  Additionally, it might include improving awareness around if the client is stuck in their sympathetic nervous system, or is able to get into the relaxation response quickly and effectively.  The assessment also includes looking at the mental habits that are supportive and life-giving or not so helpful.  The yoga therapist and client will explore with mindful attention how mental habits impact the client’s perception, communication style and relationships.  In some cases, if the client desires, there might even be an exploration of their spiritual connection or lack there of.  The assessment could include the ability or inability of the client to finding meaning and purpose in life.

Next, a daily plan for lifestyle changes and daily practice is developed and agreed upon by yoga therapist and client.  The goals are set mutually depending on the time, energy and focus the client can offer to the healing process.  These results of the lifestyle changes are tracked and adjusted over time to create optimal results.  When the yoga therapist is actually able to help people reach their goals, they will find clients returning again and again for more lessons.

Yoga therapy can also be offered to groups of 6-12 people who are experiencing similar symptoms or disease pathology.  The yoga therapist would still do an initial assessment and goal setting, just in a less comprehensive way, with each student.
