Yoga Therapy uses Yoga techniques and practices to help with specific injury rehabilitation or health problems. Yoga therapists work in small groups or private sessions, tailoring content to specific health problems. Yoga is a holistic practice, so therapists will take into account your whole person, mind body and spirit, to get the best results they can.

Good to Know

The therapist typically works primarily with yoga moves, and you will often leave with a custom series of poses to work with.

Yoga Therapy encompasses many different schools, teachers and ideologies and as credentials are not standardised, it's a good idea to ask about training and experience.

Who's it for?

Anyone working with injuries, conditions or limitations.


Yoga Therapy is still quite new, and hasn't yet become a mainstream practice.
