Yoga-Informed Therapy: Integrating Ancient Wisdom & Psychotherapy

In our fast-paced, modern world, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, stressed, and disconnected from ourselves and our loved ones. At Experience Therapy Group, we understand the importance of holistic approaches to mental health and well-being. That’s why we offer Yoga-Informed Therapy, which draws on the evidence-base of Somatic Therapy to offer a unique and effective way to improve your mental and emotional health.

Yoga-Informed Therapy can be a valuable tool on your journey towards a healthier, happier life.

What is Yoga-Informed Therapy?

Yoga-Informed Therapy combines the evidence-base of traditional psychotherapy with the time-tested wisdom of yogic philosophy and practices. It’s a holistic approach that recognizes the therapeutic value of the mind-body connection and the profound impact it has on our mental and emotional well-being. This therapy integrates evidence-based therapeutic approaches with movement, mindfulness, and breathwork to promote healing, self-awareness, and personal growth.

Emotional Regulation: This therapy enhances emotional intelligence and self-leadership, helping you better identify, understand and manage your feelings.

Body-Mind Integration: By connecting with your body through yoga postures and movements, you can release physical tension, increase distress tolerance, and foster a more compassionate relationship with your body. We’ve found it to be particularly helpful for clients hoping to find healing from: chronic pain, body image issues, and chronic & traumatic stress.

How Does It Work?

Our experienced therapists at Experience Therapy Group will work with you to create a personalized therapy plan tailored to your needs and goals. During sessions, you can expect a combination of traditional talk therapy, movement, and mindfulness & breathing exercises. If you are interested in incorporating Yoga-Informed Therapy into your sessions, it is often not the sole focus of your sessions, but instead is usually integrated into therapy as a way to help you stay regulated and connected to your body as you process through challenging emotions or life events. Many therapy participants also appreciate learning practices that they can utilize outside of sessions to help lessen stress and anxiety and cultivate more consistency outside of the therapy office.
