Yoga therapy in its existing form is a new discipline, created by the blending of traditional yoga with Ayurveda. By suiting yoga practices to individual needs, taking medical anxieties into consideration, yoga therapy is more effective as a safe means of treating medical situations.
Yoga therapy is appropriate to a great variety of illnesses, which includes anxiety, back pain, arthritis, hypertension, heart conditions, hyperventilation, asthma, digestive problems, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome (ME), fibromyalgia, RSI, migraine, insomnia, anxiety, depression and stress. Yoga therapy can also encourage progressive health for pregnancy and childbirth, mothers and babies, children, reproductive health in women and men, and the elderly.
Yoga Therapy helps to nourish both mind and body integration and brings a sense of harmony within life. It promotes the inherent curing resources of the body, helping in restoring the actual functions of the various systems of the body. Medical research points the increasing effectiveness of yoga therapy.
Yoga Therapy can be practiced in combination with medical treatments you are receiving. No prior experience of yoga is necessary. Yoga therapists are experienced yoga teachers, who help in training you in Yoga along with the Ayurvedic procedures. Yoga therapy is conducted on one-on-one or in small groups. Emphasis is given on relaxation procedures and to deep, rhythmic breathing.
