Therapy is defined as the remediation of a health problem. Preventive therapy is that which is intended to prevent a medical condition from occurring. Supportive therapy is that which increases comfort.

Yoga means to bring together, to “yoke”, to join and unite. Therefore, Yoga Therapy is the joining together and uniting of varied practices that improve health, provide remediation of medical health conditions and that gives support to and increases comfort and well-being.

Yoga therapy is for you if you have chronic pain such as shoulder and low-back discomfort or are experiencing fatigue, low immune function or difficulty with your sleep-wake cycles. These and other health challenges, can be temporary due to stress, overwork and injury. Yoga therapeutics will help to resolve these issues, with respect to each individual.
