Yoga Therapy is the adaptation of yoga practices for people with specific health needs. It is taught by yoga teachers with additional training and experience in the therapeutic application of practices.
Yoga Therapy views the person as a whole; an integrated system of mind, body, emotional and spiritual aspects. Yoga Therapy can address different aspects as appropriate, to promote healing and improve health.
For example, Yoga Therapy can allow us to develop better body alignment if we have joint or back pain, encourage a quietening of the mind to help deal with stress or anxiety or to find space inside where we can begin to feel more comfortable and peaceful with ourselves.
Yoga Therapy is one of the fastest growing fields of complementary healthcare. Our graduates find therapeutic work privately, in the NHS, in private medical centres, or working with special interest groups. Some choose simply to integrate their therapy knowledge into their own lives and their regular yoga classes taking them to another level.
