Yoga Therapy is the sharing of yoga where there is a specific health need or needs. Yoga therapy uses the tools that you would find in many yoga classes; postures, working with the breath, meditation, awareness of the body and/or mind, relaxation, and these are directed to the needs and ability of the person concerned. The aim of yoga therapy is to promote good health for the person as a whole - the emphasis of this work may be towards the body, the mind, the emotions or a combination of these.
