What Is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy is the application of yoga to help alleviate physical and mental health conditions with a view of bringing ease and comfort to everyday activities. The aim is to work holistically encouraging health and well-being by using specific yoga practices and their broad range of known benefits. Yoga Therapy can improve quality of life, such as helping to overcome panic attacks by balancing breathing techniques combating fear and anxiety or if the client is receiving difficult medical treatments such as chemotherapy and how yoga therapy can help them with the ability to cope that empower them.
Yoga therapy can be practiced on a 1-1 basis or in a small group and is appropriate for a wide range of ages and lifestyles.
“Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the teachings and practices of Yoga.”
