What is Yoga Therapy?

A Definition of Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy can be tricky to define, partly because of the complexity of the tradition itself, and because, like Yoga, the discipline can be approached in many different ways.

But to allow Yoga therapy to be better understood, it is important to have a working definition understandable in laymen’s terms.

Here is the IAYT (International Association of Yoga Therapists) Definition:

Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the teachings and practices of Yoga.
