What is Yoga Therapy
The belief underlying yoga therapy is to enable the body systems to function as efficiently and effectively as they can .The aim in yoga therapy is not to cure specific symptoms, but to target the cause by teaching the brain and body to work in harmony.
Yoga therapy can be thought of as being similar to physical therapy because we use physical postures to help people recover from injury, manage pain, and improve flexibility, mobility and strength.
Yoga therapy can also be thought of as being similar to psychotherapy because the principles and practices of yoga can help people deal with change, loss, anxiety and other internal struggles.
Ultimately yoga therapy acknowledges our spiritual nature by providing tools to increase our self awareness and create change at a profound level.
