An effective traditional Indian healing method, yoga therapy can be traced back thousands of years. It is a customized yoga regime that analyzes an individual’s troubling health conditions, habits, lifestyle, level of flexibility, fitness, and overall constitution, in order to treat the core problem.
So while a general yoga practice can greatly improve your health by making you fitter, inducing weight loss, and give you proper form and posture, yoga therapy goes one step further to heal more serious and mental and physically obvious disturbances in the body—much like the fear of working out again after an injury or accident.
With the knowledge of physiology, medical conditions, and the human anatomy, a yoga therapist can prescribe the right asana, create a variation, or simply eliminate particular poses in order to benefit your current physical and mental condition.
Asanas based out of Ashtanga, Hatha, Bhakti, Jnana, and Karma Yoga, breathing and cleansing techniques, bandhas, mudras, and relaxation methods are the natural tools used for treatment.
Yoga therapy has displayed fantastic results in comparison to other treatments. People feel a sense of independence towards their health, and are empowered to move forward, no matter what the mental roadblock or physical ailment.
So if you are looking for a cost-effective, non-evasive, all natural cure post an injury or an accident, try some yoga therapy to heal your body and mind simultaneously.
