“Therapeutics, treatment and care of a patient for the purpose of both preventing and combating disease or alleviating pain or injury. The term comes from the Greek therapeutikos, which means “inclined to serve.”
Yoga serves the greater field of healing through its expansive health system. For thousands of years the yoga techniques have been successfully tested. Now yoga is recognized as a respected therapy. Yoga focuses on increasing prana (qi, chi) as health is connected with the steady flow of this life force.
A holistic approach is at the core of TriYoga Therapeutics. This includes diet (plant-based), conscious movement of body and breath, art of relaxation, self-reflection, and meditation. Through the study of subtle anatomy, including the three bodies and five sheaths, various disciplines are practiced to encourage balance and harmony.
Yoga that is practiced systematically is therapeutic. In India the ancient healing system is called yoga chikitsa (healing, therapy). In the same way, TriYoga Therapeutics supports those recovering from, or living with illness or injury. There are many healing modalities under the umbrella of yoga chikitsa to tailor a program based on the individual need. TY Therapeutics provides the foundation in understanding your personal needs. We often hear that many people start yoga because of an injury or body pain. Then later they say it was a blessing in disguise as it brought them to the far-reaching benefits of yoga that they may never have discovered.
Supported postures are held for several minutes and longer
with rhythmic breathing and mindful awareness.
This encourages the connective tissue (fascia) and muscle to lengthen.
Joints become more mobile and ease of movement returns.
The healing power of prana responds to this natural surrender of body.
It is where asana and yoga nidra merge. Alpha brain waves
and deeper meditative states are experienced as awareness expands.
To relieve suffering, the yogis prescribe self-enquiry. Whether it be for body or mind, understanding the cause is a beneficial step in healing. Even when the direct cause is not realized, healing can begin through implementing positive lifestyle changes. Yoga is transformational.
There are various themes to choose from based on your personal preferences. Asana sessions are individualized to support one in understanding how to modify the posture and/or to use the correct prop support to align and relax the body. Each session is relaxing and rejuvenating. Whether you are recovering from an injury or simply want to recline and relax, TriYoga Therapeutics is available for all to attend.
Includes postures or series helpful for:
- Stress reduction
- Chronic pain, such as back
- Recovery from injury or illness
- Injured areas, such as knee or wrist
- Beginners or athletes who feel extra tight

- Increasing mobility in joints
TriYoga is inherently therapeutic for many reasons, including its systematized approach; the slow, conscious movement; focus on breath and alignment; and use of props and modifications. The comprehensive approach deeply heals with stretches and strengthening to all joints throughout the range of motion.
