Hi, this is Nydia. I offer a unique service that melds the traditional western physical therapy evaluation & treatment practice with traditional eastern Hatha yoga instruction and practice that is geared towards treating the “whole” person. The result is a practice that I call Nydia’s Yoga Therapy.
This practice focuses on listening to and acknowledging the whole person, on reducing the suffering of those who experience acute and/or chronic pain and aims at improving their physical function to positively affect quality of living. This practice aims to teach individuals as much as they care to know about their physical bodies, to reduce the fear of the unknown and to empower them to make informed choices about the care of their most precious possession—their whole health.
I present this practice to the community via Nydia’s Yoga Therapy studio in San Antonio, Texas. The studio’s presence allows me to act as an ambassador for yoga in the medical community and facilitates the continuing education of medical professionals that include physicians, physical therapists, nurse practitioners, chiropractors, etc. I am able to dispel misconceptions about yoga and promote safe and effective yoga instruction and practices that emphasize breath centered awareness, functional mobility and stability, use of proper technique and balanced spinal/joint alignment modified to meet the needs of the individual whether they practice alone or in a group setting. The studio presence also allows me to mentor and train my team of yoga instructors and participate in yoga research so that the healing and transformational approach that is Nydia’s Yoga Therapy can positively impact as many lives as possible.
