WHAT IS THERAPEUTIC YOGA?
Numerous studies attest to the benefits of yoga, the centuries-old mind-body practice, on a wide range of health-related conditions—particularly stress, mental health, and pain management. This has led to the development of a new form of yoga: therapeutic yoga. In therapeutic yoga, traditional yoga postures are applied to treat chronic health conditions. Practitioners receive additional training in anatomy, physiology, psychology, and other medically related topics. Most therapeutic yoga professionals work or affiliate in hospital or clinical settings and work one-on-one with patients.
