Yoga Therapy differs from a yoga class in that the intention changes to individuals or groups with specific conditions. After an appropriate intake and assessment, therapists will often focus on the specific symptoms that trouble their clients and identify methods to help them manage those symptoms.
The therapist’s role is to empower clients to take a more active role in their self-care. The therapist’s job is less about teaching yogic techniques and more about helping clients to overcome their challenges and gain independence.
The job of the therapist represents a different focus, a different type of education, and a different skill set.
Diane is amazing! Super informative, fun, easy to connect to really overall amazing. I very much enjoyedour work together. She has made a great positive impact on my life.
Diane is so knowledgeable and has so much to offer to the community. I was very impressed by the plan she created for me. It has given me more energy, better sleep, and has made me more clear minded.
I have been working with Diane in both private sessions and yoga classes for more than ten years. Her professionalism and gentle nature are what enable her to maintain long term clients.
I started working with Diane in April 2022 after nursing a couple of back issues, primarily an inflamed sacroiliac joint. I’d already been in PT but the results were very slow and unsatisfying. Working with Diane and Yoga Therapy proved to be a blessed event in the realm of healing the physical body. Diane did a thorough interview at the outset and each session came with a thorough follow-up email. She also sent me home with print-outs of the various techniques that had been instructed. I make a point to mindfully check in with my lower back, and re-visit the yoga practice at least once a week. To date, the lower back seems to be at peace and has been that way for several months. I’m back to running, lifting weights and some high-intensity interval training. She is a committed yoga therapist, fully informed about pain management and other aspects of self care.
