Yoga Therapy


Yoga therapy involves applying Yogic principles to an individual in order to achieve a spiritual, psychological, or physiological objective. This type of therapy employs yoga postures, breathing exercises, meditation, and guided imagery to improve both mental and physical health. Yoga therapy takes a holistic approach that integrates the mind, body, and spirit. By combining elements of physical therapy and psychotherapy, modern yoga therapy employs a broad range of therapeutic methods. Numerous studies have shown that yoga has a positive impact on the body, helping to regulate blood glucose levels, alleviate musculoskeletal disorders, and maintain cardiovascular health. Furthermore, yoga has been demonstrated to have significant psychological benefits, including increased mental energy and positive emotions, while reducing negative feelings of aggression, depression, and anxiety.
