Definition of yoga therapy

Yoga therapy is a holistic method that combines the principles of yoga with specific therapeutic techniques to improve physical, mental and emotional well-being. It addresses various health problems and disorders through physical postures (a sanas), breathing exercises (panorama), meditation and other practices adaptable to individual needs.

The benefits of yoga therapy include boosting the immune system, better stress management, a greater sense of personal accomplishment, and an overall better quality of life. This approach integrates the mind, body and soul to create balance between the mental, spiritual and bodily aspects of the person concerned.

In addition, it can be useful for relieving certain chronic or acute pain such as that associated with autoimmune or joint diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or certain psychological disorders such as depression or anxiety. Highly skilled practitioners can tailor this approach according to each patient's specific needs so that they can achieve their desired therapeutic goals as quickly as possible.

The main principles of yoga therapy

Yoga therapy is based on several fundamental principles:

  • The individual as a whole: it considers the human being as an integrated whole, considering his body, his mind and his soul. It aims to encourage a better understanding of oneself and to promote harmonization between the physical, mental and spirit.
  • Awareness: it approves the practice of careful observation of the body, thoughts and emotions in order to increase self-knowledge. This practice allows individuals to open up to the therapeutic benefits that yoga therapy offers.
  • Respect for individual rhythm: each person has their own physical and mental limits, so the sessions are adapted to the specific needs of each person to offer an optimal personal experience.
  • The balance between effort and relaxation: finding the right balance between dynamic action during yoga a sanas (postures) and deep relaxation during relaxation moments is essential to obtain a harmonious state in each participant.


History of yoga therapy

The practice of yoga dates back several millennia in India. However, it was in the 20th century that Hindu masters began using it for physical, mental and emotional therapy.

Since then, yoga therapy has spread throughout the world and is recognized as a complementary form of health care that can be combined with other conventional medical treatments.

The benefits of yoga - whether used alone or in conjunction with other treatments - continue to grow a little more every day: it helps relieve stress, improves body flexibility and strengthens deep muscles to promote better posture and optimal alignment of bone joints to prevent chronic pain linked to muscle tension or poorly positioned joints.
