Yoga therapy utilises yoga techniques to support individuals who desire to take responsibility for preserving and protecting their health.
Yoga therapy is drawn from the ancient Indian sciences of Ayurveda (for the body) and yoga (for the mind).
Many people seeking yoga therapy are wanting to heal a specific illness or health condition.
In Australia, yoga therapy is increasingly recognised as a complementary health modality, which can effectively optimise individual wellbeing.
Yoga therapy addresses health from a holistic, individual perspective. Yoga therapy involves designing a programme for an individual based on their current physical, psychological and emotional state of health, and their unique goals. Following an initial assessment session, an individualised practice will be designed for the student to practice regularly at home. A personal yoga therapy practice typically includes specific physical yoga movements, breathing and meditation practices, along with appropriate lifestyle and dietary modifications to address any specific exisiting imbalance, whilst at the same time preserving and improving health.
