What Is Yoga Therapy?
The practice of Yoga Therapy is highly effective in bringing a balance to the systems of the body. Yoga Therapy is not a treatment as such, nor is it aligned with any medical system or practice. Rather, Yoga Therapy allows people to access the healing benefits of yoga through the use of props, support and specialised sequencing.
Who Can Attend Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy can also be of benefit to new or existing students who have ongoing health issues or problems with various parts of the body. It is also suitable for people with no yoga experience but looking for an alternative approach to an existing condition or injury. Some common ailments which bring people to Yoga Therapy include:
*Arthritis *Asthma*Anxiety *Back pain *Blood disorders *Cancer *Cardiovascular disease *Circulatory disorders *Diabetes *Depression *Fatigue *Heart abnormalities *Immune disorders *Migraines *Muscle pain *Obesity *Skeletal-muscular disorders*Thyroid disorders
