Integrative Yoga Psychotherapy
Integrative yoga therapy uses a broad range of yoga-based modalities (asana, pranayama, mudra, Yoga Nidra, mantra, and meditation) to support healing of mind and body. It can be applied to specific conditions or used as an approach to overall wellness. It can be seen as operating in part through mechanisms that conventional medicine has begun to explore in the realm of psychoneuroimmunology.
Yoga therapy works on three levels. First, it promotes the flow of prana, or vital force, by ameliorating energy blockages within the body. Second, it promotes changes in musculoskeletal and organ structures that can create realignment and better circulatory flow. Third, it promotes psychic transformation through knowledge of our true essence as interconnected beings that are part of an infinite source of positive energy.
Yoga views the body as having energy centers called chakras, each of which is related to specific systems of nerves, endocrine/organ functions, and personal qualities. Yoga stimulates the energy of each chakra, sheds light on emotional blockages, and moves them into the conscious mind.
The Center provides yoga therapy through the work of Nancy McPartland, either directly or as an adjunct to her practice of psychotherapy.
