INDIVIDUAL YOGA THERAPY IN
GENEVA

Life can be challenging. Our daily lives or the events in our lives (health diagnosis, death of a loved one, separation, stages of life…) can provoke strong emotions that we wish we could manage.

Keeping a peaceful mind and a certain distance in all situations is not a superpower that some of us are born with. It’s a skill we learn and nurture throughout our lives.

Keeping a peaceful, positive mind, staying centered, having an anchor point. These are the goals Maria aims to achieve for her students, so that they can live more serenely and cope with their difficulties.

What is therapeutic yoga?

Yoga therapy is a wellness care practice that can complement conventional treatments. Derived from yoga, it works on various physical and mental aspects (body, emotions and thoughts, which interact constantly and make up each individual).

Yoga therapy can be preventive, but it can also strengthen the health resources of people in distress. It involves taking charge of patients who have a health problem, to enable them to cope better with their situation, illness, treatment or hospitalization.

What are the benefits of therapeutic yoga?

Yoga therapy techniques can :

  • Reduce episodes of insomnia
  • Improve sleep quality by reducing feelings of fatigue
  • Manage stress and anxiety (reduce anxiety episodes, post-traumatic stress disorder)
  • Improve post-operative quality of life through meditation and gentle movement,
  • Improve quality of life for patients with chronic illnesses. For example, people with type I and type II diabetes, metabolic syndrome and fibromyalgia.
  • Help people who have difficulty managing their disorders to cope better with hospitalization and medical care.
  • Help keep fit even for those who have difficulty moving and/or are bedridden.
  • Improve self-esteem.
  • Provide tools to get out of a crisis of discouragement/depression.
  • Reduce inflammation and chronic inflammatory pain.

When participants make the necessary lifestyle changes and integrate the short, personalized practices proposed, they feel better, with more energy and better overall health.

How does a first therapeutic yoga session work?

We will discuss your health issues, taking into account any diagnosis made by your doctor. This exchange will help you to better understand what can be adapted or suggested to you.

For example: postures, breathing, meditations, lifestyle.

At the end of the session, we establish the objectives for our follow-up, and you leave with some initial advice to put into practice in your daily life.

This first session lasts an hour and a half.

How does yoga therapy work?

In yoga therapy, we work on different levels and consider that every person and every state of health is different. Consequently, we work in stages.

This means that we start with the easiest, most accessible layers of imbalance, and then, if the person wishes, we can go deeper and reach more subtle layers of their being.

Even for the most superficial layers, there’s a process of learning new habits and unlearning old ones that will take time and motivation to implement. That’s why it’s not enough to give you the keys to better health; the hardest part is changing your habits.

The first class lasts an hour and a half, with subsequent classes lasting an hour.
