What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga therapy is the evidence-based application of yoga postures, exercises, mindfulness, meditation and breath work to address a client’s specific needs, whether it be to improve function and mobility or address other physical, emotional or mental symptoms the client is experiencing.
