Yoga therapy is the application of specific yogic practices (postures/movement, breathing techniques, mindfulness, meditation and more) and their known benefits to address ailments of the body, mind, and spirit. These tools can be used to improve one’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Yoga therapy is a unique healing modality as it addresses ailments from a holistic perspective rather than viewing each aspect of the self as separate from each other. Yoga therapy is different from regular yoga classes as each of the sessions are designed to address the unique issues of each individual or small group.
Yoga/Yoga therapy in recent years has gained attention in medical settings due to the research that illustrates the significant health benefits. Yoga therapy is being used as complementary treatment for many mental and physical illnesses, including but not limited to mental stress, PTSD, depression, anxiety, addiction, eating disorders, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and more!
