More health care practitioners are starting to include yogic techniques in their approach to healing -- and more yoga teachers give a therapeutic intention to their teaching.  People who have never tried yoga before are starting to consider including Yoga in their treatment plan.

What Is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga Therapy (also known as Yoga Cikitsa) is being promoted as the wave of the future by many healthcare professionals. It is not a new style or branch of Yoga: it is Yoga. Yoga is and always has been a holistic healing discipline that offers a broad range of tools for supporting health, healing and personal transformation.


Why Do Yoga Therapy?

Yoga is beneficial for health in ways that modern science is just beginning to understand. Even though it has been applied with therapeutic intention for thousand of years, Yoga Therapy is only just now emerging as a discipline in itself, brought about by the tremendous popularity of yoga and created by the marriage of traditional yoga with modern medicine.


How Does Yoga Therapy Work?

Yoga therapy is conducted one-on-one. Often a session closely resembles work with a physical therapist or rehabilitation specialist than it does a typical yoga class. What sets this healing modality apart from others is a focus on linking movement to deep, rhythmic breathing.
