What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga comprises a wide range of mind/body practices, from postural and breathing exercises to deep relaxation and meditation. Yoga therapy tailors these to the health needs of the individual. It helps to promote all-round positive health, as well as assisting with particular medical conditions. The therapy is particularly appropriate for many chronic conditions that persist despite conventional medical treatment.
Yoga therapy respects individual differences in age, culture, religion, philosophy, occupation, and mental and physical health. The Yoga Therapist applies Yoga Therapy according to the period, the place, and the practitioner’s age, strength, and activities.
What to Expect
