The difference between a yoga practice and yoga therapy is therapeutic. Yoga Therapy specifically addresses and focuses on the needs of a group or individual. Yoga therapy is the adaptation of yoga practices for people with health problems.


What is a Yoga Practice?

Yoga teachers will often refer to "your practice," implying that there is no final product. You NEVER graduate from yoga which means that your practice is always evolving and changing, as are you. Although the poses themselves do not change, your relationship to them will.


Why Yoga?

Yoga is a practical science for holistically promoting harmony at the physical, mental, emotional, social and lastly, spiritual levels. When this balance is disturbed by accident, illness, disorder or stress, yoga can help restore it, help cure it or help manage it.
