Gabriel’s Yoga Therapy is a safe, modern, therapeutic progression of yoga therapy that builds structural integrity and functional ease of motion.
It is the belief and experience of Gabriel’s Yoga Therapy that the modern Western body cannot do traditional yoga poses without the serious risk of long-term disability or injury. Traditional yoga today emphasizes flexibility at the cost of structural strength, causing pain and injury to the long-term stability and functionality of the modern Western body.
Gabriel’s Yoga Therapy develops structural strength first and foremost.
In Gabriel’s Yoga Therapy, we combine “neutral spine” yoga therapy poses with weight-bearing exercises, creating a body strong in muscles and joints and functional in tendons and ligaments. Neutral spine poses place less stress on the weaker areas of the spine, such as the lumbar (low back) and cervical (neck) areas. As the spine has less stress and strain, the body’s muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints can perform their intended functions without risk of serious injury.
