Yoga & Yoga Therapy in Healthcare

Yoga and yoga therapy training programs

What is Yoga?

Yoga is an ancient practice of adaptation to change. Through movement, breathing and meditation a person can learn to find balance in their body, mind, and spirit in a variety of situations. Gentle to advanced poses are incorporated. Yoga is an effective stress-management practice that promotes harmony, well-being, and a healthy lifestyle. Yoga is often taught in a class setting by an instructor who has completed a minimum 200-hour of teacher training.

What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga Therapy is a complementary healing modality with a healthcare focus that uses yoga techniques and practices to support patients in their healing process, helping relieve symptoms of pain, fatigue, depression, and anxiety. A unique treatment plan is created to focus on the needs of each individual. A yoga therapist has a minimum of 1,000 hours of yoga education.
