How is “YOGA” different from “YOGA THERAPY”?
Yoga Therapy incorporates a therapeutic intent as a preventive or curative means to manage or facilitate healing. It is the facet of the ancient science of “Yoga”, which focuses on health and wellness at all levels: physical, emotional, and psychological.
