OVERVIEW – YOGA THERAPY

Yoga Therapy is not new. Prevention and healing have been always the main purpose of yoga philosophy. Therefore, it can be difficult to define it, especially because we can approach the concept from different perspectives. Nevertheless, we offer a few definitions to make the term understandable and accepted by all people -whether yoga practitioners or not.

Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the teachings and practices of Yoga.” (International Association of Yoga Therapists’ definition)

Yoga therapy is a self-empowering process, where the care-seeker, with the help of the Yoga therapist, implements a personalized and evolving Yoga practice, that not only addresses the illness in a multi-dimensional manner, but also aims to alleviate his/her suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner.  Depending upon the nature of the illness, Yoga therapy can not only be preventative or curative, but also serve a means to manage the illness, or facilitate healing in the person at all levels.” (TKV Desikachar & Kausthub Desikachar)

SAMPOORNA YOGA’S DEFINITION

“Yoga Therapy is the process of using the benefits of Yoga techniques as a method to prevent illnesses, ease symptoms, facilitate healing and achieve an overall state of wellbeing.”

YOGA AND YOGA THERAPY

Although yoga is a therapeutic practice, there are significant differences when it comes to yoga classes and yoga therapy sessions, yoga students and yoga therapy clients, yoga teachers and yoga therapists. Let’s take a look at the core of these concepts:

YogaYoga Therapy
Yoga Students: Most often, students come to yoga classes looking for exercising, relaxing and using yoga as a tool for self-observation, gaining deep understanding, and self-development.Yoga Clients:Usually, clients look for help to relief some symptoms of their health condition. These people seek to use yoga techniques that help them to feel better -and more functional- according to their illness.
Yoga Teachers: Irrespective of the yoga school of thought and the teaching style every teacher follows, yoga teachers’ aim is to help their students to improve and deepen in their yoga practice -from asana, to meditation and pranayama. Good yoga teachers usually modify their classes according to the interests and abilities of their students.Yoga Therapists: More than focus on yoga methods and practices, yoga therapists need to understand their clients’ health condition, determine how to help them and look for yoga techniques that specifically reduce or manage their symptoms, improve their functionality and support their healing process. Yoga Therapists are yoga teachers who have completed accredited yoga therapy training programs.
Yoga Classes: Even though some yoga teachers may conduct one-on-one classes, Yoga is usually practice in a group setting. Good yoga teachers respect physical conditions, abilities, and strengths of their students and may offer modifications accordingly while teaching how to practice yoga.Yoga Therapy Sessions: Clients with same or similar health conditions may attend group sessions. Nevertheless, the one-on-one format is more advisable. Yoga therapist’s job is less about teaching yoga techniques and more about supporting their clients to overcome their particular health condition using

YOGA TRAINING AND YOGA THERAPEUTICS TRAINING

Syllabus of both trainings may seem similar in the core; however, in order to practice yoga therapy, yoga teachers need to acquire a different set of tools, knowledge and skills:

TopicsYoga Teacher TrainingYoga Therapy Training
Foundations of Yoga Philosophy
Basic Anatomy and Physiology
Teaching Skills
Teaching Practice and assisting
Ayurveda and Naturopathy
Advanced Anatomy and Physiology
Pathology of Common Illnesses
Yoga methods and techniques adapted to individual needs

WHY TO STUDY THE THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS OF YOGA?

Studying yoga as a tool to overcome and ease the symptoms of common illnesses has become extremely popular recently, due to the great therapeutic effects yoga practitioners experience in their body and mind.

Consequently, the demand for yoga teachers with specialized knowledge in yoga as a therapeutic tool, in different fields such as: health management organizations, corporations, hospitals, retreat centers, schools, colleges, universities, sports centers, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, and many more, has grown exponentially. With our Arogya Yoga Teacher Training you acquire a specialization that allows you to help clients who suffer from a specific problem (diabetes, obesity, hypertension, cancer, among many others).
