Medical Therapeutic Yoga

Medical Therapeutic YogaMedical Therapeutic Yoga is a form of integrated and functional medicine delivered by an experienced medical professional. It provides a new model for fitness and rehabilitation that helps you maintain health in a simpler and more holistic way. MTY benefits everyone, whether you are a patient or are simply seeking a more prevention-driven and holistic medical model.

 Programs and Care for Moms-To-Be and New Moms

Post-Partum Evaluation & TreatmentPregnancy and Childbirth bring about many changes in the body, including soft tissue lengthening, strength and coordination changes, and postural alignment challenges. All women benefit from guidance and help  during pregnancy and after delivery as they learn to re-connect with their bodies after giving birth. Some of the things that we evaluate and treat during pregnancy and after birth:

  • Pelvic Ring Pain (pubic symphysis, SI, and "sciatica")
  • Diastasis Rectus Abdominus (DRA)
  • Painful episiotomy scar or C-section scar
  • Urinary incontinence 
  • Back, neck, and joint pain
  • Painful intercourse

Preparing to give birth takes 40 weeks; as your body recovers from this journey, we can help you regain strength and resume exercises and activites.

Yoga for Moms-to-Be and New(er) Moms

Yoga for moms to be and for new moms is currently scheduled individually or in small groups to meet your time needs. These sessions  allow mom-to-be and new moms to explore the changes occurring in balance, strength and mobility safely and to Learn new strength and core development and prepare for childbirth (and the weeks immediately after) as a new mom in this class. Learn to restore, revitalize, and strengthen as a mom! 

New moms: babies "in arms" (non-mobile) are welcome. 6 weeks is by no means the "recovery time" standard...your body is still recovering, and we encourage enjoying those first weeks caring for yourself and your new family member. If you attend the class before 6 weeks postpartum, we do request a note from your midwife or MD stating OK to return to activity.

If you have any questions about the class, please email rebecca@embody-pt.com or call us at 412-259-5342.
