Medical Yoga is not the same as medical yoga therapy, although both are therapeutic, the program is not designed to replace physical therapy or psychotherapy. It is not considered Yoga Therapy or Physical Therapy.
It is a separate yoga practice designed as corrective posture exercises, gentle yoga asanas, assisted stretching, breath work, tapping energy centers with affirmations, energy medicine healing, and other holistic practices addressing body, mind, and soul.
What is Medical Yoga Therapy?
Definition: the integration of a traditional evaluation, followed by an assessment and plan of action as to concise prescriptive custom designed therapeutic Yoga program for a patient’s particular medical, psychological, spiritual, and wellness needs.
The practice plan may include traditional physical therapy modalities such as assisted stretching, Yoga, Meditation, as well as Eastern Energy Medicine via implementation of Chakras, Meridians and Reiki Energy Healing. Additionally, tapping Meridians in conjunction with Affirmations, and Holistic Dietary Changes will allow transformation of physical, mental spiritual needs to ultimately change the lifestyle, and alter the path of existence towards a higher awareness, self-realization, and complete wellness of body mind and spirit.
