What is yoga therapy (or more accurately, yoga-based therapy)?


Traditionally known as "yoga chikitsa", yoga-based therapy is using the tools of yoga for healing.  


Yoga-based therapy can involve working on physical injuries or imbalances, healing chronic illnesses, balancing emotional disturbances, and/or addressing mental illnesses.


Using physical postures, breath work, sound, and meditation, yoga-based therapy can effectively address imbalances at the energetic level, which has an effect on both the physical body and the mind.  


Yoga-based therapy can effectively address:

  • Chronic illnesses
  • Sleep disorders
  • Chronic stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma recovery/PTSD
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Eating disorders
  • Chronic pain 
  • Chronic fatigue
