Clients who come for yoga therapy are interested in one thing–relief from the condition they are suffering from.
As westerners, we are conditioned to respond to these calls for help by tackling the symptoms. But we need to keep reminding ourselves that as yogis our goal is to help our clients achieve a more sattvic state–to bring them into better balance as a mode of healing and achieving long-term results.
This is especially true when working with people suffering from chronic conditions.
While working to alleviate symptoms, we also look for deeper causes of the problem, and we work with clients to help them achieve greater awareness and find ways to heal the whole self.
In this video, Brandt explains why helping people become more sattvic is an important foundation of yoga therapy, and key to our effectiveness as yoga therapists.
