Functional Yoga Therapy honors ancient yoga techniques while combining modern wisdom to identify imbalances and facilitate your healing and wellness path.
Functional Yoga Therapy techniques can be utilized in your daily life to enhance your comfort levels - body/mind/spirit.
The Functional Yoga Therapy process is based upon the Panchamayakosha model of yoga, recognizing our human existence as consisting of 5 sheaths or layers:
•Anamayakosha - the physical body and its systems
•Pranamayakosha - the energy body and breath
•Manomayakosha - the psychoemotional body
•Vijnyanamayakosha - the watcher state or higher mind
•Anandamayakosha - the bliss body, higher consciousness and the enlightened state
