The mind/body connection is an integral part of overall physical and mental wellness — your body responds to the way you think, feel, and act. Unmanaged stress from a life event can contribute to numerous health conditions from low energy and weight gain to headaches, stomach issues and high blood pressure.
Yoga offers numerous ways to breathe, move, and meditate to cultivate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. We are pleased to announce that Sarah Greco, C-IAYT, ERYT500, has joined our wellness staff, adding yoga therapy to our practice, providing our patients access to one-on-one sessions that bring individualized attention to specific health conditions.
According to Sarah, being mindfully aware through yoga therapy has therapeutic benefits from decreasing stress to empowering personal growth to recovering from trauma, depression and illness. “My clients are men and women who feel disconnected and at odds with their bodies. They may be in pain and discomfort physically, mentally and emotionally. Yoga therapy is an important part of their recovery process from illness, injury, trauma, bereavement and/or addiction.”
Classes are 75 minutes in length and begin with gentle movement to warm up. Postures and breath techniques are chosen in response to the specific condition the client is experiencing. Yoga postures enable clients to access deepened states of meditation and relaxation to care for their physical bodies; Yogic breath techniques help to care and regulate emotional states; and Yogic meditation techniques offer clients ways to take care of their mental health.
