Yoga therapy is Lifestyle medicine. It is a self-care multimodality practice to help us find balance, harmony and perfect health in our body and mind.
Many of our modern aliments are metabolic in nature occurring in our physiology and biochemistry and this is exactly where yoga can help. Learning that we are connected in our body and mind and that we need to learn how to self regulate our daily stress and reactivity through the tools of present moment living, mindfulness, meditation and breath work. The physical practice helps to keep our body strong, limber and mobile and out of pain and discomfort and all the other aspects help our mental and emotional wellbeing.
Yoga Therapy gives up the tools to liberate from the pressures and tensions of life that lead to anxiety, panic and depression and lifestyle and behavioral practices to thrive!

Wisdom of Yoga Therapy
In Yoga Therapy we use many different assessment tools to find where there is an imbalance in the body or mind. We are energetic beings and we are connected to everything in us and around us. The microcosm is in the macrocosm. When you raise your awareness to this you then can begin to harmonize yourself in your physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual layers.
Pain and suffering comes from disconnection and you may be stuck in patterns that need to be broken to find relief. You can learn how to reconnect through the wisdom of yoga. The tools in yoga are mindset shifts and raised awareness, asana, breath work, meditation and finding a spiritual connection to the intelligence of life.
Is your energy stuck (physical pain), too high (anxiety), too low (depression)? Assessing the energy of your body and mind is another way to uncover healing opportunities. Once you find the cause you can implement changes to your routines, lifestyles and behaviors to heal.

"Would like to say how much I enjoy and look forward to Debi’s Yoga for osteoporosis and Yoga for balance classes. I have been doing yoga for a number of years and started taking classes with Debi about two years ago. I have been really happy with her practice and find her classes both strenuous and relaxing at the same time! Debi is very knowledgeable and caring in her practice. She gives individual attention to everyone. I hope to keep taking her classes for many sessions in the future!"
"Thank you for being such an enthusiastic Yoga teacher, utilizing your training, constantly building on that by personally taking classes to learn more about the human body and passing it on to us; your latest
venture to India. Debbie you are so full of life and excitement about anything you tackle or decide to do--it's tough sometimes when you increase our level of stretching, holding a new pose & you encourage us because you think we can do it--we all need a little push. Many of us feel good knowing we did something important for ourselves, spiritually & physically!"
"I feel grateful for my yoga teacher Debi Robinson. She is my yoga for osteoporosis teacher on Tuesdays and Thursday each week. She teaches Dr. Fishman's yoga for osteoporosis and his 12 poses .she is very patience and full of knowledge and shares it with our class. I’ve been taking Debi’s classes for 3 years and feel so much better after each class."
"I have been taking yoga for osteoporosis for three years now from Debi. I have gained such confidence in my balance and making my bones stronger by doing the 12 poses for osteoporosis that Debi teaches. Debi's great! Not only does she teach us the poses but also gives us healthy food suggestions and relaxation technique's she's the best. Thanks Debi!"
"I have been taking yoga classes with Debi Robinson for 6 years. She is a wonderful teacher. She explains and demonstrates the poses. I had sinus attacks for 45 years. In our yoga classes we do amazing breathing. I can say that I have not had a sinus attack in the last 5 years. I attribute this to the yoga breathing. Also my doctor is impressed with my strong core. My health is very good and now only see my doctor once a year."
