Yoga Therapy


Yoga therapy is a mind-body practice that focuses on your physical, emotional, and mental health. The practice uses movement, mindfulness, meditation, relaxation, and breathing exercises to help you relax, relieve stress, and manage underlying conditions or symptoms in addition to treatment by a healthcare provider. It is a bridge between yoga and healthcare and an emerging healing modality increasingly employed by healthcare systems in a variety of ways.

Yoga therapy uses time-tested yogic teachings and modern methodologies for healing and greater overall well-being, in response to crisis conditions or the quest for greater self-understanding. It includes yoga postures, breathwork, meditation techniques, yogic philosophy and anatomy teachings, deep listening, and discussions of yoga and meditation. The various modalities incorporate elements from psychotherapy and occupational and physical therapy; However, yoga therapists do not diagnose or treat diseases unless they are otherwise licensed to do so.

Yoga therapy can be used in three effective ways:

  • A stand-alone therapy for certain mental and physical health issues
  • In combination with other treatments, such as psychotherapy, physical and occupational therapy
  • An introduction to personalized yoga & meditation practices for beginners and practitioners of all levels
