Dayton Yoga vs Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy is typically conducted one-on-one or in small groups

This morning I read an article in Yoga Journal about the difference between Yoga and Yoga Therapy. I teach traditional Yoga a but I specialize in YogaTherapy. “Yoga is typically structured for the masses.┬áNot every Yoga class is appropriate for students with injuries. Those students with special needs require a┬ácarefully designed therapeutic yoga program tailored to the specific needs of the patient and, when necessary, adapted it to the individuals in the group. There are exceptions, but for the most part, this kind of personalization is rarely possible in a traditional Yoga class.”

I love this too “Yoga therapy is typically conducted one-on-one or in small groups. Often, a session more closely resembles an appointment with a physical therapist or rehabilitation specialist than it does a typical yoga class. What sets this healing modality apart from others is the focus on linking movement to deep, rhythmic breathing. Another difference is the emphasis on relaxation. In fact, when someone is gravely ill, a therapist may suggest that the entire practice consist only of breath awareness and relaxation until the patient is ready to tackle more.” That’s another benefit of a tailored therapy session vs traditional Yoga.
