This is a day where Yoga Therapists worldwide get together to share their skills and experience to help people through the power of yoga therapy.
Yoga therapy is more than just yoga, yoga therapists work with their clients to create a practice that can help them with a wide range of symptoms and conditions such as functional disorders (IBS, Fibromyalgia etc), migraines/headaches, insomnia, addiction, stress/mental health, physical injuries and restrictions and much more.
In a typical yoga therapy session you would be expected to complete a thorough health questionnaire, which the therapist will go through with you. The therapist will then complete a postural assessment and then watch you breathe and then move. After that they will create with you a personalised practice which can include a variety of techniques such as meditation, asana, pranayama and mantra, whatever is needed and whatever YOU feel works. This practice is then scribed (or maybe videod) for you so that you can practice at home at an agreed time.
