What is Yoga Therapy?

Most simply put, Yoga Therapy is the application of Yoga to an individual. Where a yoga class may serve a collective focus (restorative, hip opener, strengthening etc.), a Yoga Therapy session is designed to support the unique needs of the client.

For example, a restorative practice may be relaxing for one person, but may have the opposite effect for another. Deep hip openers serve many, but would be contraindicated for someone post-surgery. A qualified Yoga Therapist works with an understanding of anatomy and pathology to suggest postures, breathing techniques, diet recommendations and lifestyle changes as they might specifically support the individual or group of individuals with a common focus.
