 Karuna Arts Yoga...

Therapeutic Yoga

Therapeutic yoga benefits each student regardless of age or physical condition. 

The therapeutic yoga approach is ageless, our student base ranges from age 17 to 86. Athletes benefit by learning subtle awareness while stress reduction techniques calm the mind.  Everyone benefits using physical activity, breathing practice, and stilling the mind.

Yoga is not a new activity, it has been in existence for many thousands of years.  As modern science has revealed more about health and the human condition in the 21st century we now have the knowledge to adapt and modify classical yoga postures in a therapeutic way so that yoga can be enjoyed and benefit all.  Therapeutic yoga allows each student to flourish without forceful pushing. 

Therapeutic yoga honors the ancient roots and teachings of yoga and meditation practice while guiding each participant into a deeper state of center.  Therapeutic yoga is an evolved practice in that it adapts to the individual needs of each student and requires an educated and experienced instructor adept at observing and adapting for you.

Karuna Arts Yoga, home of Therapeutic Yoga, is located in Des Moines, Washington, serving the local and neighboring communities including Burien, Normandy Park,  SeaTac, Renton, West Seattle, Arbor Heights, Boulevard Park, Federal Way, Kent, Tacoma and beyond with since 2002.  Convenient to Sea Tac Airport, yoga classes are offered throughout the week, private yoga instruction is available by appointment.
