Yoga Therapy 

What is yoga therapy?  
The International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) defines yoga therapy as “the process of empowering individuals to progress towards improved health and well-being through the application of the teachings of yoga.” Practices include gentle physical postures, breathing practices, mindfulness, meditation and working with imagery and intention, among others. 

Yoga therapy is generally practiced one-on-one and in small group sessions. You do not need any experience with yoga. Yoga therapy sessions are tailored to each person’s unique circumstances and health challenges with the goal of improving, maintaining, and optimizing health and wellbeing. The goals of yoga therapy include managing or eliminating symptoms that cause suffering, improving function and helping to prevent or remove the underlying causes of illness. 

What health concerns can yoga therapy help? 

Yoga has been found to be helpful for a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to: 
  • reducing chronic stress and its negative impacts on health;
  • emotional balance;
  • depression and anxiety;
  • muscular and joint pain; 
  • chronic pain;
  • balance and stability;
  • osteoporosis;
  • inflammatory and immune conditions; 
  • neurological conditions;
  • diabetes and pre-diabetes.
What are the ongoing benefits of yoga therapy? 

Many clients find that yoga therapy sessions effectively address their specific conditions as well as offer a general sense of increased calm and vitality. Yoga therapy may also support efforts toward positive behaviour change.
