Yoga Therapy for the Individual
Yoga must be made to suit the individual, not the individual to suit the yoga – T Krishnamacharya
The adaptation of yoga for therapeutic benefit is yoga therapy. An individual yoga program is designed for your specific needs to gain optimal well-being. At your initial consultation, your physical needs are assessed, followed by a series of private lessons for about a month to help you learn your program of daily activities (simple movements, breathing techniques, sound, relaxation and meditation).
