Yoga Therapy for Common Ailments

What is yoga therapy?

     Yoga therapy is the application of yoga to health problems.  While general yoga can help with some ailments, specialist yoga therapy is needed for others.  This is important not only because yoga therapy can be more effective than general yoga for such ailments but it is safer.   Certain conditions can be exacerbated by general yoga.
     Yoga therapy can help in the management and prevention of many different ailments (see under “Yoga Therapy” and “Research”).  At present this website is focussed primarily on low back pain and sciatica.
