EYT offers a means for safe, personal healing to people living with chronic pain or illness.

Yoga Therapy is a means to utilize the various tools of yoga: intelligent movement, breath, meditation, visualization, and life-style to facilitate an individual’s healing process. Essential Yoga Therapy offers a gentle, therapeutic orientation to yoga that is supportive of those with limited mobility. The spring board for developing our programs arises from the same fundamental teaching of yoga: That we bear responsibility for reducing suffering in ourselves; and once we have achieved a level of health we are to be in service to others. Whether you are entering our door as a client or a student-teacher, the EYT orientation will help you to grow in wisdom and self-awareness, assisting you in living a more conscious, joyful and fulfilling life.

Our founder and director Robin Rothenberg brings 30 years of experience, education, and training to her work. She supports clients through life-transforming changes, assisting them in shifting out of chronic pain on the physical and psycho-emotional levels to achieve a higher quality of life and overall sense of well-being. Meet our team of yoga therapist and mentors, or use the EYT Directory to find a yoga therapist near you.
