YOGA THERAPEUTICS - Lauren Barnert-Hosie, OSYC Director, is certified in Iyengar Yoga Therapeutics (3 yr. intensive training) and is certified with the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
Yoga Therapy differs from the regular practice of yoga in that individualized poses are given to a student who's physical/emotional/spiritual obstacles cannot be addressed in general classes. Unlike Physical Therapy, yoga therapeutics addresses each student "holistically" to help the student unearth the root of the issue that impedes well-being. Asanas (physical poses), pranayama (breath work) and meditation are the tools of yoga therapeutics.
OSYC offers "Private" Yoga Therapy; a weekly Yoga Therapeutics Class and Specialty Yoga Therapy Workshops/Classes.
