Exhale Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MTY)

Medical Therapeutic Yoga utilizes a holistic, biopsychosocial model of care, prescribing yoga in a safe and effective manner. It combines the expertise of a physical therapist with the traditional components of yoga, making it safe for all ages and medical diagnoses.

Through dedicated, one-on-one hour-long appointments, we will work together to identify obstacles to healing through altering lifestyle choices and taking control of your health and well-being.

How does Medical Therapeutic Yoga Differ From Other Types of Yoga?

Medical Therapeutic Yoga classes are taught by a Professional Yoga Therapy Institute®-trained physical therapist who takes into account your specific condition and can adjust and adapt your program on the fly. We begin by focusing on breath work and yoga pre-postures, providing a safe platform to build upon.

Together we’ll tailor a plan to your specific needs that provides instruction and education on best movement patterns based on your medical history. No previous experience with yoga is required!

One-on-one Physical Therapy Visits

Most health plans have benefits for the physical therapy portion of your treatment, less any required co-pays/co-insurance/deductibles. The integrated model of Medical Therapeutic Yoga incorporates a studio session with your physical therapy components, so there is a separate small yoga studio fee which is not a covered health plan benefit or an approved expense with HSA or FSA plans.

Call 919-388-0111 today to schedule your one-on-one physical therapy appointment!

Group Classes

Group classes will take place in our private yoga studio, located inside the Cary BreakThrough Physical Therapy clinic. Classes will cost $25.

Small class sizes (max 8-people) ensure you quality instruction and hands-on facilitation. Participants are asked to fill out a short medical screen prior to their first class and must be able to get up and down from the floor independently. Exhale yoga classes are beneficial for a wide range of medical diagnoses, all ages, and all experience levels. No prior yoga experience is necessary.
