Yogapathy:

d

describes a practice of yoga with the intention to meet ourselves in healing and health, based on evidence-based therapeutic approaches of empowered self-care. 

There is beautiful word in sanskrit, sarvodhaya (sar-vo-dye-yah). It can be translated as meaning "self-care". Therapy is a word which is greek in origin, meaning an intentional, healing change. And yoga is sanskrit word often translated as "union", a bringing together of kindness and care for self-healing and empowerment. This is the aspiration of Yoga Therapy at Sangha Yoga.

Yogapathy's Intention: Empowerment of the Practitioner

Yoga Therapy at Sangha is multidimentional. Physical concerns often have their roots in emotional patterns, impressions, and habitualistic thinking. How we inhabit the body is the starting place for yoga therapeutics; how we breath, how we look outside ourselves into the world around us, how we carry our past into the present. Yoga practice interacts with these natural ways of our being, and we can become conscious of these patterns and co-create with them. Naturally, compassionately, wisely. 

Foundation: Maitri (Loving Kindness) 

Learning to authentically offer ourselves kindness and care, so we can offer it to others without depleting ourselves. This is one of the many gifts of yoga; through the practice of the postures we find our literal and metaphorical sense of flexibility, adaptability, mindful attention, and spacious sense of self both as an outward and as an inward experience. 

Compassion: Stewardship of the Practice via Research 

Becky Morrissey is a certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) and a licensed Mental Health & Substance Abuse Therapist who offers yoga therapy modalities as well as conventional therapeutic approaches. See Solace Counseling Support: www.solacecounselingsupport.com for more information about Becky's yoga therapy based counseling practice. 

Joy with Equanimity: A Safe Place of Sanctuary and Support 

Everyone who enters the space is welcomed into an open-minded, non-judgmental and compassionate environment. Our goal is to provide yoga programs that offer something for everyone. We encourage all to come as you are, without an agenda, and become a part of one larger community.

Evidence-based research into Yoga Therapy's true utility guides Becky's yoga therapy class offerings, workshops, teacher trainings, and her own personal practice, from which the roots of her teaching practice originate. 

Currently  Sangha is offering a class series called Embodied Breath. This class focuses upon finding space, safety, and swatantrya, freedom, via our practices. This class will offer support for trauma, anxiety, depression, and mood, via a certified yoga therapist and licensed mental health provider.
