Yoga Therapy is Yoga where there is a specific need or needs.

Yoga Therapy views the person as a whole; an integrated system of mind, body and emotions. Yoga Therapy can address these different aspects as appropriate, to promote healing and improve health.

For example, Yoga Therapy can allow us to develop better body alignment if we have joint or back pain, encourage a quietening of the mind to help deal with stress or anxiety or to find space inside where we can begin to feel more comfortable and peaceful with ourselves.
