Yoga and Yoga Therapy

Yoga is an ancient science that promotes awareness and self-healing. It provides the tools for self-investigation and self-development that ultimately guides practitioners towards self-realization. As our bodies are a field of observation, it enables us to reconnect to our inner wisdom and peace.

Yoga therapy is an emerging field with a specific focus on health and healing.  It is derived from the Yoga tradition of Patanjali and the Ayurvedic system of health care, which refers to the adaptation and application of Yoga techniques.  It requires regular practice to help individuals facing health challenges at any level.  It allows practitioners to manage their condition, reducing symptoms, restoring balance, increasing vitality, and improving attitude..

As Sri Sri Ravi Shankar puts it, “Health is not a mere absence of disease, it is a dynamic expression of life – in terms of how joyful, loving and enthusiastic you are.” Yoga helps to improve posture and breathing, through mindfulness.  It is a holistic fitness package. 

Yoga is a skill in action and not just an exercise.  It is how we communicate and act.  It is a technique, and when it is mastered, it becomes an art and that makes it unique!​
