Visions HealthCare Expands Yoga Therapy Classes and Sessions
Visions HealthCare, in Dedham, is increasing its yoga therapy offerings as part of the company’s integrative services. Students can choose between one-onone sessions, a Saturday drop-in class or an eight-week group program. The next classes take place at 9 and 10:30 a.m., Saturday, January 11. The eight-week program options include Fridays at 10 a.m. beginning January 10 or Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m.
Yoga therapy is said to bridge modern health care and the ancient practice of yoga by combining modified movements, balancing breathing techniques, meditation, teaching and discussion. “Yoga therapy differs from mainstream yoga in the sense that it is a very individualized, gentle practice,” says instructor Alaine Amaral. “It’s ideal for individuals with pain, injury or disability.” Amaral is certified in integrative yoga therapy as well as Kundalini yoga.
Pre-registration is required and the class is limited to 15 participants. Individual appointments with Amaral are available year-round.
