Yoga is beneficial for health and wellness in ways that modern science is just beginning to understand. Applied with therapeutic intention for thousands of years, Yoga Therapy is only just now emerging as a discipline in itself. We now see health care practitioners incorporating yogic techniques in their approach to healing and many health care practitioners are now working with or referring their clients to a yoga therapist.
Yoga therapy is an ideal practice for those with individual needs that make group classes inappropriate or just a more comfortable place to begin. By tailoring the practice to the individual, yoga therapy can produce quicker and greater results than a general yoga class.
"Yoga therapy, derived from the Yoga tradition of Patanjali and the Ayurvedic system of health care refers to the adaptation and application of Yoga techniques and practices to help individuals facing health challenges at any level manage their condition, reduce symptoms, restore balance, increase vitality, and improve attitude."
-Gary Kraftsow, American Viniyoga Institute
"Yoga therapy consists of the application of yogic principles, methods, and techniques to specific human ailments. In its ideal application, Yoga therapy is preventive in nature, as is Yoga itself, but it is also restorative in many instances, palliative in others, and curative in many others."
-Dr. Art Brownstein, M.D.
