The process of fostering in individuals the capacity to make strides toward improved health and wellbeing through the application of the teachings and practices of yoga is referred to as yoga therapy.
India is the birthplace of yoga, which can be described as a scientific system that focuses on self-exploration, self-transformation, and self-realization. The teachings of yoga can be traced back to an ancient text called the Vedas, as well as to other classical texts and a robust oral tradition. This tradition acknowledges that the fundamental quality of the human being is unchanging awareness, which exists in relation to the ever-shifting phenomena of the empirical world and is identified with those phenomena.
In order to support the relationship that exists between the client/student and therapist in yoga therapy and to bring about positive change for the individual, the practice of yoga therapy requires specialized training and the development of skills.
