Yoga Therapy adapts the practice of Yoga to the needs of people with specific or persistent health problems not usually addressed in a group class. It is a type of therapy that uses yoga postures, breathing exercises, meditation, and guided imagery to improve mental and physical health. The holistic focus of yoga therapy encourages the integration of mind, body, and spirit. Modern yoga therapy covers a broad range of therapeutic modalities, incorporating elements from both physical therapy and psychotherapy.
Issues Treated by Yoga Therapy
Yoga therapy is well established as a treatment for depression and anxiety. Because of its concentration on mind and body integration, yoga therapy is also used to address many physical health issues. It has been effectively used to treat back pain, heart conditions, asthma, chronic fatigue, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, and side effects of chemotherapy.
Practice and Benefits of Yoga Therapy
Unlike a standard yoga class, yoga therapy sessions are typically conducted in one-on-one or small group settings. Yoga therapy can be provided as an adjunct therapy to complement other forms of treatment, or it can be used to directly treat a specific issue. Yoga techniques range from simple to advanced, and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Potential benefits from yoga therapy include stress reduction, psychological well-being, improved diet, and efficient functioning of bodily systems.
Yoga Therapy is different from going to a group yoga class.
Yoga therapy sessions are one-on-one, and have a home practice component. A home practice helps clients take an active role in their healing process and is self-empowering. The yoga teacher customizes an appropriate yoga practice and offers support, guidance and review.
