As a Physical Therapist and Yoga Therapist, Sylvie uses the framework of western medicine combined with traditional Yoga practices to help people improve their physical, emotional, and spiritual health. She offers weekly Yoga Therapy classes to our patients at an off-site studio, with the aim to educate, empower, and enable individuals to take an active role in their own health and wellness process. These therapeutic classes include a series of physical movements, breathing exercises, and mindfulness practices. Sylvie uses a variety of props, including chairs, blankets, blocks, and belts to modify poses to best meet the needs of each person.
“I always receive personalized attention at Medical Therapeutic Yoga classes at SOPT. Sylvie is very attentive and creates classes using exercises, breathing techniques, and relaxation practices that are good for my many medical conditions. These classes have helped me significantly improve my mobility and reduce the pain in my joints and lower back.”
