“Yoga Therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the philosophy and practice of Yoga. It supports individuals facing health challenges at any level to manage their condition, reduce symptoms, restore balance, increase vitality, and expand the individual’s attitude” -International Association of Yoga Therapists
Yoga Therapy is the adaptation of yoga practices for people with health challenges. Yoga therapists prescribe specific regimens of postures, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques to suit individual needs. Medical research shows that Yoga Therapy is among the most effective complementary therapy for several common ailments. The challenges may be an illness, a temporary condition like pregnancy or childbirth, or a chronic condition associated with age or infirmity. Yoga therapy practitioners are playing a primary role in a national shift toward integrative healthcare. Using an advanced mind-body approach, these professionals incorporate a therapeutic approach to evaluate and design effective programs, tailored to address individual’s health challenges.
