Yoga Therapy is all about treating the whole person: mind, body, and spirit.
It is based on the belief that human beings are born with the ability to heal and need only remove physical, emotional, and spiritual blocks in order to let that natural ability shine through.
While Yoga Classes are often taught in groups and are usually more general in nature, Yoga Therapy Sessions are usually one-on-one and quite specific.
In Yoga Therapy the focus is on applying the principles and practices of Yoga in a way that most benefits that individual's conditions and issues.
Whether you are facing a serious condition, recovering from a physical injury or surgery, or dealing with mental and emotional issues, Yoga Therapy can help you on your way back to vitality and wholeness.
Back pain, heart disease, arthritis, and depression are among the long list of conditions Yoga Therapy has been known to help. It has also been studied and applied to conditions such as cancer and various auto-immune diseases.
Yoga Therapy is a holistic approach and therefore complements traditional medicine as well as other forms of treatment you may already be undergoing.
