Therapeutic power of YOGA

Yoga by nature is therapeutic and has healed and transformed the lives of many people for many years. However, over the last 5 years, we've seen "Yoga Therapy" become it's own discipline. Health care practitioners are including yoga techniques in their healing modalities. Western physicians and physiotherapists are prescribing yoga to patients to assist in the healing process for everything from PTSD, chronic pain, acute injuries to specific diseases, like cancer, crohns and other auto immune diseases. The effects of yoga have been studied by a number of different universities and fascinating articles have been published on the power of this practice for healing. Check this article out on the effects of yoga therapy for chronic lower back pain. 

We at believe deeply in the power of yoga to heal and transform and we're blessed to have Leanne Kitteridge's teachings on our site. Leanne has been teaching for over a decade & specializes in yoga as physical therapy. She also works in one of the top physiotherapy clinics in Canada as a movement educator. When she's not at the clinic, she can be found teaching public classes, immersions, specialty workshops and teacher trainings. We highly recommend Leanne's classes to anyone looking to specifically address certain areas of the body or just simply educate yourself on healthy alignment and movement. 

Leanne has a number of great yoga classes on, however these are 2 of our Favourite Therapeutic classes, that we know you'll love.
