Change, Inc. is proud to offer the only 1-on-1 Therapeutic Yoga in the entire St. Louis area!  Our expert yogi, Val Weaver, RYT-200 Yoga Alliance, takes the time, energy, and compassion to work with individuals at their own pace in developing a yoga practice that is right for them, taking into account clients’ years in yoga practice, insight/experience, and individual therapeutic needs and goals.  

But What is Therapeutic Yoga?

In his book, Surgery without Surgical Instruments: The Art of Yoga Therapy, Dr. Kausthub Desikachar explains that therapeutic yoga is  “a self-empowering process, where the care-seeker, with the help of the yoga therapist, implements a personalized and evolving yoga practice, that not only addresses the illness in a multidimensional manner, but also aims to alleviate his/her suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner. Depending on the nature of the illness, Yoga Therapy can not only be preventative or curative, but also serves as means to manage the illness, or facilitate healing in the person at all levels.”

“[Therapeutic yoga brings] awareness to another vast dimension of yoga’s tools and how they can be effectively utilized to help all kinds of people improve their quality of life. The perception that yoga is only for flexible, fit people is challenged when more and more people with severe disabilities of the body and mind are able to benefit from yoga therapy. Yoga therapy also contributes to changing how health itself is understood; yoga therapy demonstrates us that the human body is, in reality, a holistic and dynamic entity that is constantly evolving.”  –Dr. Kausthub Desikachar

Many clients at Change, Inc. pursue 1-on-1 Therapeutic St. Louis Yoga as an add-on to their existing clinical therapy regimen, which may already include breathing, meditation, and mindfulness work. Others simply use it as a standalone service.
