12:00 pm: Yoga as Therapy, by Stephanie Fischer
Whether you are new to yoga or have a regular practice, most of us have experienced the effects of “feeling better” after an asana practice. This might be relief from back pain or simply quieting an overactive mind. Practicing yoga is an opportunity for self-study, to see where we feel healthy, and where we feel discomfort or dis-ease, and to take these observations as our path to self healing. Yoga as a Therapy will be a brief discussion of what health means in a yoga context, and how we can use the practice of yoga to move towards a state of health.

In Carla’s extensive experience, treatment and healing from an integrative approach can promote optimum health.
