Yoga therapy is a merging of traditional yoga with modern medicine. Medical assessments are taken into consideration to tailor yoga practices to individual needs. This approach makes yoga therapy more effective than general yoga practice for people who wish to treat specific medical conditions through yoga. Yoga therapy can be applied to a wide range of physical and mental-emotional conditions, such as low back pain, arthritis, shoulder pain, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, hypertension, heart disease, anxiety, depression, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, and it generally incorporates lifestyle advice and nutritional recommendation.

It is not necessary to have experience of yoga before beginning Yoga therapy.

Yoga Therapists meet privately with their clients, or in semi-private or small groups. After a thorough initial assessment, the therapist devises a particular group of poses, breathing and meditation exercises for the client, individualized for the clients needs, and gives personally made handouts and homework with stick figures, and thorough written and oral explanations. Clients can meet regularly with their yoga therapist, several times a week, once a week, or once a month. In Rachel’s practice, she will answer questions and make revisions periodically through email or Skype, if requested.
