The ultimate aim of yoga is freedom - from pain, suffering, and attachment to limiting beliefs.

What is yoga therapy?

An analogy my teacher Joseph LePage uses to define it is this: Yoga teachers cook with a recipe while yoga therapists cook from scratch and substitute ingredients as needed.

Yoga therapy is based on the collaborative relationship between a trained yoga therapist and a client or small group of clients with a similar wellness objective.

As yoga therapy grows in recognition both in public awareness and the medical profession, definitions are helpful. 

My top definition comes from Yoga Therapy as a Whole-Person Approach to Health (2020) by Lee Majewski and my teacher Dr. Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani:

“Yoga therapy is about recognizing where the person is, helping them understand where they are, why they are there, and what they can do to get where they want to be.” 

Another comes from Larry Payne, Ph.D., C-IAYT who shared: “Yoga therapy adapts the practice of Yoga to the needs of people with specific or persistent health problems not usually addressed in a group class.”
