Yoga is a generalized practice of physical postures, breath, and meditation, like a well-rounded workout for the body and mind.
Yoga therapy is a tailored practice using the tools of yoga: physical postures, breath-work, meditation, and philosophy to address an individual’s needs from a biopsychosocial and spiritual perspective. Yoga therapy can be it’s own practice or work in combination with psychotherapy, physical therapy, or other medical modalities. Yoga therapy offers space for healing through the lens of self-awareness, self-care, and self-efficacy to support quality of life and overall wellbeing.
