I have just completed a year long, 100 hour training focused on yoga therapeutics. There are many varying definitions of this practice. Let me share my definition with you:
Therapeutic Yoga is an offering of breath, movement, and awareness with the intent to heal, transform, maintain, and rejuvenate the body to be the most functional it can be. Therapeutic yoga teachers are aware that everybody is different so while there is deep interest in alignment it is not to get the body to look a certain shape; it is to offer a shape to the body that allows energy, healing, strengthening, lengthening, and release to occur. These changes occur physically, mentally and emotionally. Students of therapeutic yoga are encouraged to let the body and breath be the guide, deepening the wisdom of the body to communicate what is healing and what is hurting. Therapeutic yoga is for anyone with a body, and injured body, a young body, a old body, an imperfect body. Anyone whose body has tightness, hypermobility, flexibility or strength. For anyone who is curious about a whole mind/body practice that encourages overall health.
I am not teaching any classes specifically in this style, but I have been incorporating it is to my regular classes.
This practice is for anyone who is interested in quality of movement facilitating a lifetime of physical expression in your body.
