What is Yoga Therapy? The International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYTs) defines Yoga Therapy as " the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the philosophy and practice of Yoga". The ancient tradition of yoga incorporates a wide range of mind/body practices, from posture and breathing exercises to deep relaxation and meditation.
Some might suggest that yoga in itself can be therapeutic. However, Yoga Therapists have advanced training and are certified with an accredited yoga therapy school. Their training may include topics like mental health, disease, and pain, allowing them to work with more specialized groups.
As a Yoga Therapist, I work with clients on issues such as chronic pain, pelvic dysfunction, stress, anxiety, depression, and other health conditions. My training includes Yoga for chronic pain, cancer, depression & anxiety, heart disease and traumatic brain injury.
I also work with prenatal & postnatal women on issues such as proper posture and breathing, as well as pelvic pain, diastasis recti and c-section recovery and scar care.
Rather than teaching students how to practice yoga, I work with clients using the tools of yoga to address their needs. I typically work one-on-one to better serve the client and after an assessment, will create a sustainable treatment plan, which address the client’s goals, help manage or reduce symptoms, improve function and may even help improve the clients attitude towards their ailment.
What it is not Yoga Therapy is not intended nor should it diagnose illness or disease. It does not replace the care of your health care providers but can serve as a complimentary treatment in conjunction with other treatments and therapies.
