What is Yoga Therapy?


Discover the Healing Path of Yoga Therapy.

Yoga therapy is client empowered evidence-based therapy adapted from the ancient practices of yoga, such as breathwork, postures, and relaxation techniques.

The difference between traditional yoga and yoga therapy is that traditional yoga teaches healthy individuals how to achieve excellence while yoga therapy teaches people who are suffering from pain, illness, or disease how to find more ease.

Yoga therapists have in-depth training knowledge on how to assess and adapt to keep their clients safe. They work to address specific goals through client-empowered care.

The practices your yoga therapist may recommend could include:

  • Movement
  • Breathwork
  • Meditation or Relaxation practices
  • Structural Yoga Therapy
  • Somatic Movement and trauma-sensitive practices
  • Mood or Behavior modification

Yoga therapy is different than physical therapy in that it uses protocols of corrective movement as only one piece of the multi-dimensional experience, measuring also against our lifestyle, communities, and social-economical structures. There are as many treatment strategies as there are people.
