The International Association of Yoga Therapists has recently released their definition of 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."
It is thought that all yoga is therapy; but the practice of one-on-one yoga therapy as a discipline is the application of the traditional tools of yoga (such as postures, breathing techniques, meditation and self-awareness). As an ancient science of health, well-being and self-discovery, yoga therapy addresses a specific goal or concern of an individual.
One-on-one yoga therapy sessions benefit those suffering from lower back pain, postural changes and structural misalignment, migraines, autoimmune disorders, insomnia, depression and anxiety. Yoga therapy also aids in stress reduction and relaxation and accident/injury/surgery recovery, creating programs which bring overall balance and well-being.
