Their healing yet playful exercises will include breathwork, self-massage, vivid visualizations, and a gentle sequence of yoga poses (asanas).

What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga therapy combines yoga and counseling to improve wellbeing. It's a holistic approach that uses asanas, breathwork, meditation, and Ayurvedic techniques to address an individual's physical, mental, and emotional needs.

Yoga therapy helps people tune into what their bodies are communicating to them. Ultimately, it can improve mood, decrease chronic pain, and release trauma — which may be stored in the body as stuck energy. Learn more about what a yoga therapist does.

What is Conscious Dating?

Both yoga therapy and conscious dating techniques help you identify conscious and unconscious blocks that keep you from living the life you want.

Conscious dating tools help you:

  • Identify the obvious ways you hold yourself back — like hiding yourself from, or being quick to reject, potential dates.
  • Uncover unconscious blocks — the deeper parts of your psyche that leave you triggered and keep you in unhealthy dating patterns.

The goal of conscious dating is to bring all these parts into awareness, integrate them with radical acceptance, and transform them into strengths. Learn more about what a conscious dating coach does.
