Yoga Therapy

What is yoga therapy?

Many people think of yoga therapy and picture something similiar to physical therapy, which it can be, but is not always.  There are many forms of yoga therapy.  Like other forms of therapy it is often labeled according to the injury or disorder it is working to improve.  An approach I prefer is labeling according to the positive effects the client hopes to achieve.  For example yoga therapy for mental health verses yoga therapy for depression.  I just like the positive shift. Due to the fact that we are culturally acustomed to identifying with the problem rather than the solution I realize this can seem confusing for some.  There are many labels, practices and applications for yoga therapy.  OK, now you are probably wondering if I am going to provide any clarity to this question.  Well, I believe the best way is to provide you with some resources and see what your opinion is on the topic….what is yoga therapy?  Let me know what you think.
