Program

Yoga is so beneficial for the health in ways that modern health science is just beginning to understand this. Even though it has been applied with therapeutic intention for thousands of years, yoga therapy is only just now emerging as a discipline in itself. More health care practitioners are starting to include yogic techniques in their approach to healing in which more yoga teachers give a therapeutic intention to their teaching. People who have never tried yoga before are starting to consider including yoga in their treatment plan.

As yoga techniques are researched and new data is gathered, it becomes easier for science and the medical establishment to understand and accept the benefits of yoga therapy. Yet, there is still not one consensual definition of the discipline. In order to arrive at an adequate definition and to come up with proper standards for yoga therapy, it is crucial at this early stage to properly address some delicate professional and ethical issues. At the same time, it is important to educate the general public about yoga therapy's benefits and careful use.

Yoga styles

While the principle of yoga is the same throughout, there are many different styles. This is great because you can pick and choose the style that suits your needs best. You can take a look below for some examples.

Ashtanga yoga

Ashtanga yoga comprises of six pose sequences. These increase in difficulty and can be quite exhausting. This makes Ashtanga yoga a good style for those wanting to inject some cardio into their routine but may not be suitable for those with limited mobility or health concerns.

Hatha yoga

Hatha is one of the more common styles available. Typically, in a gentler practice, Hatha is often recommended for beginners to learn the basics and benefit from the relaxation element.

Restorative yoga

Restorative yoga is designed to encourage relaxation and healing. There is typically less movement instead you spend 20 minutes or so in just a handful of poses. Staying in poses for longer ensures you get its physical benefit as much as possible. Restorative yoga poses are often incorporated in yoga therapy.

Vinyasa yoga

Vinyasa yoga is often referred to as Flow yoga as it involves moving through poses in a fluid motion. In-between holding poses, you'll go through a Vinyasa which is a series of moves which join together the poses. This style requires focus and is known for helping to calm down the mind. The amount of movement required, however, may make it difficult for those recovering from any illness or injury.

Some diseases and physical problems can be solved by yoga therapy in the yoga school. They are as follows:

  • Arthritis / rheumatic disorders
  • Back pain
  • Bronchial asthma
  • Certain musculoskeletal issues
  • Depression / anxiety neurosis
  • Diabetes
  • Gastro-intestinal tract disorders
  • Headaches
  • Painful joints
  • Sexual weakness
  • Stress
  • Thyrotoxicosis

As with all complementary therapies, yoga therapy is designed to be used alongside conventional treatment to help heal the body more effectively. In some cases, the therapy will not be able to fully cure an ailment but it may help you to better manage your symptoms and lower any factors associated with stress. After getting the go-ahead from your doctor, your first port of call will be to have a consultation with a yoga therapist. During this meeting, the therapist will discuss your medical history to ascertain your specific concerns. They are also likely to ask about any lifestyle factors which may be affecting your condition.

Your yoga therapist will then devise a treatment plan. They will put together a range of suitable poses and exercises. The poses they recommend will depend on the concern that brought you to yoga therapy. In most cases, the therapy will be delivered in a one-to-one setting. However, it can also be delivered to groups of people with the same ailment. During your sessions, your yoga therapist will show you how to do the poses and will ensure you are doing them safely. They will also keep track of your progress which is adjusting your treatment as needed.

Some therapists will encourage you to continue your practice at home. They may also offer advice on relaxation and meditation too in order to complement your therapy.
