“Yoga therapy adapts the practice of Yoga to the needs of people with specific or persistent health problems not usually addressed in a regular group class. Yoga therapy can assist with many problems, including: addressing long-standing muscle tension and chronic pain; recovering from injury; dealing with depression and anxiety; transforming grief; recovering from cancer and cancer treatments; managing stress, including PTSD.”
