Yoga Therapy Practicum

Explanation of Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy is a complementary therapeutic approach that can be used to treat dis-ease and dys-function, and promote health and well-being using yogic techniques. This therapeutic approach can be used as a stand alone therapy, or as a complement or follow-up to more traditional western therapies.

The Yoga Therapy Client

"When clients seek out a yoga therapist or a therapeutic group, they are usually not coming to learn yoga, but to get help with or relief from some symptom or health condition that is troubling them. In most cases, the instruction focuses on their condition and how the yoga techniques can help them feel better or improve their function, rather than on the techniques or methods of yoga practice. " Gary Kraftsow-International Journal of Yoga Therapy — No. 24 (2014)
