Larry Payne’s Yoga Therapy Rx Wellness Plan is a synthesis of the ageless wisdom of Yoga from the East with the most recent knowledge in complementary health from the West. Using the 8-Step Wellness Plan, you can:
- Reduce stress
- Eliminate pain
- Increase productivity
- Enhance energy and stamina
- Improve mental health and well-being
- Achieve a balanced state of body and mind
Health professionals agree that good health results from a balanced state of body and mind. Chronic back pain and resulting stress lowers our resistance and immune power, resulting in a psycho-physiological imbalance that affects other areas of our life. Here’s how the program works:
The initial visit is a full hour and includes: a detailed personal history, an evaluation of your strength and flexibility in simple Yoga postures, a breath capacity analysis and the initial recommendations for your personal Yoga program.
A complete evaluation of your body alignment throughout a typical day. A short course on sitting, standing, lifting, walking and sleeping. A special emphasis is placed on walking or gait training.
Personal Yoga Program
Designed to bring both strength and flexibility to your spine as well as an over-all state of balance to the body and mind. Incorporated are principles of: breathing, Yoga asana, dynamic and static movement, and sequencing. A 15-30 minute format is recommended to fit your busy schedule.
The first phase provides a dialogue for changing situations that aggravate your symptoms. The second phase provides you with a simple system to record the progress of your Yoga program and to rate your overall state of wellness.
Recommendations for healthy food choices are essential to any life-style change program. We offer suggestions to meet your individual needs. Our own research shows that an increased level of water intake is very beneficial during rehabilitation work.
Rest and Relaxation
There is no substitute for an adequate amount of rest and relaxation. Yoga offers proven techniques to quiet the mind and totally relax the body. We emphasize Yoga breathing methods, Meditation, the use of sound, and Yoga Nidra, the art of relaxation.
Renewal & Yoga Vacations
Most self help programs like Yoga need support systems. We offer on-going private lessons, group classes and annual Yoga vacations.
