Integrated Positional Therapy
About Yoga & PT
Yoga and PT is about helping you take advantage of your own inner healing power to keep yourself healthy, eliminate or manage pain, and move freely without frustrating limitations. Laura combines the ancient discipline of yoga with the biomechanics and anatomical reference of Physical Therapy for an integrative and effective approach to pain relief and improved well being.
Combining her knowledge and experience as a licensed Physical Therapist with her training in Hatha Yoga allows Laura to find new ways to promote healing where traditional methods might have fallen short. Additionally, if you currently practice yoga, but are limited by pain or weakness, she can help you practice in a more meaningful and pain-free way. Laura offers private sessions in her home studio in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
About Laura Terry
A Physical Therapist since 1998, Laura Terry has practiced in many different settings and with clients with a variety of problems and goals: from people with major neurological disorders and injuries to clients with chronic pain and orthopedic and muscular injuries. Her clients have goals that range from returning to athletic performance, improving balance, to relieving debilitating pain.
Laura started practicing yoga in her twenties. Her yoga practice allowed her to more fully connect her physical and emotional well being. In 2008, Laura became a yoga instructor in order to share this benefit with others and to integrate it into her Physical Therapy practice. She has specialized training and experience in yoga for athletes, yoga for seniors, yoga for breast cancer survivors, and yoga for chronic pain. Laura has her own Physical Therapy practice in Chapel Hill.
Laura earned her undergraduate degree in Exercise and Sports Science from UNC-Chapel Hill in 1995 and her Masters in Physical Therapy at East Carolina University in 1998. She is the only certified practitioner of Lee Albert’s Integrated Positional Therapy (a gentle and effective manual therapy technique for neuromuscular pain) south of New York.
