WHAT IS YOGA 

THERAPY?

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.

Yoga therapy today is recognised as another health care modality that involves using sound scientific and yogic principles. It complements other forms of health care and western medicine in general supporting therapeutic treatments for  


• anxiety and depression, addictions and trauma
• cancer
• nervous system disorders, such as, multiple sclerosis 
• bone diseases, such as, osteoporosis
• digestive issues, such as, IBS, colitis
• women’s health
• metabolic disorders, such as, diabetes, obesity 
• reproductive and urinary disorders, such as, menopause, PCOS
• auto-immune diseases, such as, rheumatoid arthritis, Chronic Fatigue 
• lower back problems
• ankle and foot problems
• shoulder, elbow and wrist problems
• hip and knee joints, including hip replacements
• and many, many more health conditions
