Matthew Sommerville will give a presentation on the way yoga therapy addresses structural,

functional, and psychological imbalances, and the methods though which yoga therapy helps to bring these imbalances
back to a state of health. The presentation will be held in the community room at the Market Café located at 614 N. Bullard St.

First, he will explain how yoga therapy is tied to the traditional practice of yoga, and how
it differs from the way we think of and practice yoga as we know it in modern times. We
also look at the way yoga therapy diverges from the traditional practice of yoga while
borrowing traditional yoga methods.

Next, it’s shown how yoga therapy is similar to and different from other therapies such as
physical therapy and occupational therapy. Namely, that yoga therapy is able to address
not just physical imbalances, but can be useful in helping to correct functional aspects of
the body, as well as address psychological issues such as stress and depression.

The presentation concludes by discussing the fact that yoga therapy is often most
effective as a complementary therapy to, say, physical therapy and, finally, the advantage
yoga therapy has in that the therapy can be continued as an ongoing home practice once
the other (eg, physical therapy) therapies have been completed.
Matthew Sommerville began his yoga path some 20 years ago. He is a certified yoga
therapist practicing in Silver City, and is teaching therapeutic yoga classes at The Lotus
Center in Silver. He is currently finishing his second yoga therapy certification (500 hr.)
with the Svastha Yoga Therapy Program based in Chennai, India with Dr. Ganesh Mohan.
