What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy incorporates a therapeutic intent as a preventive or curative means to manage or facilitate healing. It is the facet of the ancient science of “Yoga”, which focuses on health and wellness at all levels: physical, emotional, and psychological.

I haven’t tried yoga before, and I thought at first that it would be too late to start at my age, especially given my health problems. But I was wrong! The restorative yoga that Beth Blanchard is teaching me is gentle, and easy to practice. Thank you, Beth! I enjoy working with you very much.
I suffered a heart attack a couple of months ago, and my cardiologist recommended yoga therapy. A few sessions with Beth Blanchard helped me quite a lot on the way to recovery. Beth is knowledgeable and kind, she listens to her clients and gives them advice that is appropriate for their specific needs and for their physical and psychological condition.
Its been a long journey searching for holistic treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia until we met Dr. Wiseman. Nothing before has helped me more than the intermittent fasting, juicing, and Yoga therapy. I didn't even feel the need to take those 20+ supplements which i was taking to control the inflammation and flare ups. I am very grateful to Dr. Wiseman and my amazing Yoga therapist, Beth Blanchard for helping me to regain the health, energy, and peace i have lost long ago.
