What is Yoga Therapy?
“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 “ IAYT
Yoga Therapy helps people with chronic conditions improve their health and well-being. It can address a wide range of structural, physiological and psychological challenges, including:
- injury recovery
- chronic pain
- joint and back pain
- heart conditions
- digestive conditions
- anxiety and depression
- PTSD, trauma and grief recovery
Yoga Therapy is a customized healing practice, and is based on individual evaluation and assessment. It draws from both evidence-based Western medicine and time tested traditional Yoga and Ayurvedic techniques.
The therapist works together with the client to develop a tailored sequence of yoga postures, corrective/therapeutic rehabilitative exercises, breathing and meditation practices, visualization, and life-style and self-care tools. The goal is to improve attitude, regain life functions and improve quality of life, and to enhance your body's capacity to heal.
Working with a yoga therapist can also complement a client's healing path and assist their other treatments to be more sustainable.
"Yoga Therapy is not the same thing as taking a yoga class. Indeed, if you have a serious medical condition, and wander into a randomly chosen class, you could easily wind up worse off than you started...Therapeutic Yoga tends to be gentle and and nurturing, though it can be challenging. The approach tends to be hands-on, tailored to the individual based on needs, abilities and responses, as well as the teacher's or therapist's observations and any contraindications.
