Topic 2.02: What is Yoga Therapy?

Within the field of Yoga, a specialisation known as Yoga Therapy has emerged.

It is the adaptation and application of Yoga practices and techniques to help individuals facing health challenges at any level. It helps reduce suffering, assists in managing symptoms and improves functionality, and helps a person physically, their perspectives about themselves and their condition.

The game-changing therapeutic framework for Yoga Therapy’s application is a treatment approach, whereby the practice of yoga is applied towards relieving and healing specific health challenges producing remarkable results.

Yoga Therapy is, however, equally relevant and perhaps even more important as a form of preventative medicine. As a complete lifestyle, Yoga affords practitioners a range of positive practices that cultivate and maintain wellbeing.
