How is “Yoga” different from “Yoga Therapy”?
Yoga Therapy incorporates a preventative or curative means to facilitate healing by infusing Ayurveda, postures, breathing, meditation, relaxation, postural assessment, chair yoga and more. It focuses on health and wellness at all levels: physical, emotional and psychological. Medical research shows Yoga Therapy is among the most effective of complementary therapies for arthritis, back pain, cancer, depression, insomnia, mobility issues, anxiety and stress. Yoga Therapists have extensive additional training to become certified.
