WHAT IS YOGA
The truth is that all yoga is therapeutic. What Yoga Therapy does differently though is to desert the "one size fits all" approach and bring back the ancient healing wisdom of yoga to a "one-on-one" setting. It focuses on proper assessment of the individuals' needs or conditions and build a practice that suits them. The aim of this therapy is to enhance wellbeing and empower the client by granting them tools that help them live better with whatever conditions they have.
