WHAT EXACTLY IS YOGA THERAPY?
The work I do as a teacher, yoga therapist, studio owner and business woman has grown out of my work as a curious student of life. In college, I studied English and Psychology following my love and wonder of language and stories and human consciousness. I am still curious about how we make meaning out of our experiences, how we communicate with ourselves and others and how we evolve our consciousness.
Yoga therapy is of modern coinage and represents a first effort to intgrate traditional yogic concepts and techniques with Western medical and psychological knowledge. Whereas traditional Yoga is primarily concerned with personal transcendence, Yoga Therapy aims at the holistic treatment of various kinds of psychological or somatic dysfunctions ranging from back problems to emotional distress. Both approaches, however, share an understanding of the human being as an integrated body-mind system, which can function optimally only when there is a state of dynamic balance.

I have been studying yoga with Dayna for over 2 years and have learned many things. Yoga offers me a sense of stability. It has made me calmer, and more centered on a daily basis. Yoga has also improved my flexibility and core strength. The breathing helps me deal with anxiety issues. I have learned to self harm much less, and focus on the importance of clearing my mind! Yoga is a personal journey, different for each and everyone of us! Stacey T
