Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the teachings and practices of yoga.
Yoga Therapy is generally provided in one-on-one sessions customized to address an individual’s specific wellness concerns, or in small therapeutic groups or clinics focused on a specific condition being addressed by multiple participants. While Yoga Therapy can be an ongoing process for some, it is generally not a one-shot solution.
One of the goals is independence from the yoga therapist, rather than an ongoing dependent relationship. Yoga Therapists want their clients to develop the awareness and path that works best for them and continue their practice on their own.
