Yoga Therapy For Tourette Syndrome

Yoga therapy is not just about exercise. Yoga Therapy aims to treat the entire individual for the individuals needs. A therapeutic yoga session may or may not include a physical practice. Every session is balanced to what the client needs. Below is a breakdown of the parts of Yoga Therapy.  

Pranayama

            When calming breath techniques are employed 3 or more times a week, the severity of tics associated with Tourette’s Syndrome is reduced. 

Meditation

            Meditation is a proven stress and anxiety reduction tool that can provide relief of TS tics that are brought on or increased by stress.         

Nutrition & Ayurveda

            Many people afflicted by TS report a worsening of symptoms when particular foods are consumed.  By taking a closer look at diet and lifestyle we can determine intolerance's that lead to tics.       

Yoga Asana

            Having a physical practice 3 or more times a week gives the body a chance to physically  release tension by strengthening and lengthening normally unused muscles.
