Yoga Therapy


Yoga Therapy with Shira Cohen, learn what it is and how it can transform your life and your loved ones lives. A story, a passion and a practice to empower.

Nov 11, 2021

Montserrat G. Mukherjee, C-IAYT yoga therapist and founder of The Yoga Therapy Institute share with Shira, how an injury in a yoga class started her road to yoga therapy.

We discuss the importance of the client's story and how we need to adapt and change the practices to evolve our choices according to the person and present reality, how the state of our world reflects our hormonal state, and that following our evolution we will find the solutions.

Montserrat shares the wonderful work she, her amazing team and students, do through the Yoga Therapy Institute, and the results of completely adaptive work; if one way doesn't work then we find another way. Leading to life transformative changes, sometimes.

The essence of yoga therapy is the person and finding they way for the individual, never giving up, including the environment, and all relationships; food, family, money, work, sleep, and is often the path of the desperado. 

Montserrat eludes to an often overlooked link between health and dis-ease as our social connection; love, physical touch and the emotions relationships invite regulating hormonal homeostasis as an important aspect of healing.

We talk about the incredible importance of stories and how they connect connect us, the importance of critical thinking when a student to prevent power dynamics.
