Tampa Yoga Therapy
Under the guidance of a licensed physical therapist, also trained in yoga, a modified yoga program is developed. Yoga exercises are utilized to promote deep abdominal breathing, relaxation, improve posture, flexibility, strength, balance and coordination. Yoga is helpful to reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol, enhance feelings of relaxation, and wellbeing. Yoga exercises are gradually put together into a natural flow that provides the benefits of aerobic exercise including increased blood flow, improved muscle development, and natural endorphin production. Throughout the process, the focus is on breathing, comfortable movement, and non-competitive community with mindful awareness. Participants are gently guided to be aware of their physical limits while moving towards greater strength, flexibility, focus, and balance in a supportive, positive, atmosphere.
