Bridging Yoga & Healthcare
"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."-International Association of Yoga Therapists
Yoga as a postural practice can be therapeutic, however, there are significant differences between a yoga teacher and a yoga therapist and between a group yoga class and an individualized yoga therapy session. When a patient seeks out a yoga therapist, they are often ready to find relief from a health condition from which they are suffering. The therapist’s goal is less about instructing yoga poses and more about assisting clients towards overcoming personal challenges from a whole-body perspective.
