Yoga therapy tailors the “tools” of yoga to the specific needs, capabilities, goals and life circumstances of the individual. These tools include postures, breath regulation, meditative practices, and lifestyle changes. The individual does not need to meet any requirement of fitness, age or health to start a yoga program. Often there is a focus on a specific health concern. From a medical standpoint, yoga therapy is highly valuable in regulating the function of the nervous system, which in turn can promote healing. Yoga therapy aims to empower people in a healing process. Since healing comes only through regular practice, a key responsibility of the yoga therapist is to inspire and motivate clients to maintain a customized personal practice. Yoga therapy is conducted either in private one-on-one sessions or in a therapeutic group class that is designed for individuals who share similar circumstances or concerns (e.g. depression, osteoporosis, back pain, diabetes, and chronic fatigue).
