Yoga Therapy

What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga Therapy is the customization of yoga practicea  for the individual. In a one-on-one-setting, issues are carefully considered, and a personalized session is created. Yoga Therapy has been used for years to help with conditions such as hypertension, anxiety and depression. Clinical studies can be referenced on PubMed, IAYT's quarterly publications and other academic platforms.

Yoga Therapy is a Complementary and Alternative medicine modality implemented in hospitals, wellness centers, schools and more. The International Association of Yoga Therapists,, accreditates yoga therapy schools and has set the criteria in 2014 requiring at least 800 hours and a minimum of two years to be certified, earning the designation of C-IAYT. It has been a master's degree program at Maryland University of Integrative Health since 2015. Ena Rodriguez has established a cross-referral system with local providers, including psychotherapists, psychiatrists, physical therapists and accupuncturists in Fort Collins and neighboring cities.  

Issues Ena has treated wth yoga therapy:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood Disorders
  • Sciatica
  • Metabolic issues
  • Surgery and injury rehab
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • PTSD
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Cancer/Chemo and radiation
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Psycho-Spiritual Inquiry 
  • and more...

Before your first Yoga Therapy session, you will fill out an Intake Questionnaire and Prakriti Chart (an Ayuvedic tool). Your first session will last 90 minutes. After your initial assessment, you will practice a personalized session handrawn by Ena Burrud. You are welcome to record your session. Expected compliance is usually about 20 minutes of home time a few times a week to see results. Yoga Therapy does not replace your doctor's advice. We work in a complementary function with other health care providers. Treetop sometimes offers discounts to those who are dedicated to practice.
