Asya Haikin, RYT 500, C-IAYT (Yoga Therapist)

Yoga Therapy uses movement, breathing, mindfulness, and relaxation to help you move towards greater wellness. During your Yoga Therapy session we will work together to design a practice that is uniquely tailored to your needs. If you are a beginner, I will make yoga accessible to you, if you are a seasoned practitioner, Yoga Therapy will help you more fully experience yoga’s healing potential.

I apply yoga structurally to work with back, hip, knee, and shoulder issues, and have a special interest in working with chronic conditions that affect mobility (MS, Parkinson’s, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia). Yoga Therapy’s integrative focus on movement, breath and mindfulness can be of great benefit for these conditions. I apply Yoga Therapy to manage weight, high blood pressure, reduce anxiety and depression, and improve sleep.

The first yoga book I read over 25 years ago was called “Yoga Therapy for Common Ailments.” Since then I have sought to apply yoga to improve my own health, and that of people around me. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 500) with Yoga Alliance, and a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) with International Association of Yoga Therapy. I am a senior yoga instructor at Sun and Moon Yoga Studio in Arlington, where I teach Gentle Yoga and Yoga Therapy workshops. I also have MA from University of Pennsylvania.

Initial Yoga Therapy Consultation: 75 min, $110. Subsequent Yoga Therapy sessions: 55 min, $95.

Home visits can be scheduled for those with limited mobility (please inquire about cost).

Yoga Therapy expenses can be reimbursable from your FSA/HSA (a letter from your medical practitioner will be needed).
