In ancient Greece, Asklepian temples were safe and sacred places people could visit to access healing wisdom within their mind and body. In the practice of Therapeutic Yoga, that same kind of environment is created and navigated into through the use of supported restorative poses, gentle yoga movements, breathing techniques, guided meditation, and a nurturing environment. The safety and support created by the practice provides a gateway to access stored emotions and wisdom in such a way that facilitates healing.
