Yoga Therapy – What is it?
When we think of the term yoga, an assortment of physical postures usually comes to mind. However, for those who are familiar with yoga, the practice is actually much more than just physical health care. In fact, yoga can have mindful and therapeutic effects and is widely known to be a lifestyle choice.
Yoga Therapy promotes a balanced lifestyle of health and well-being. In consultation between yoga therapist and client, postures and breathing are taught to help relieve acute or chronic symptoms or imbalances. Many tools of yoga may be taught and practised – including postures, meditation, breath techniques and lifestyle modification.
Yoga therapy is individualised, science informed yoga, taught by a therapist with hundreds of hours of specialised training. Read more about the difference here.
