The practice of Yoga as a Therapy or “Yogatherapy” as it is commonly known in the west is the practice and the use of the traditional methods and techniques as taught in the teachings of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Sutras of Pantanjali. The art of Yoga extends beyond the exotic and athletic postures that we often see but it is indeed a impressive and compelling tool to the one who practices it and owns it. Yoga as a Therapy is a fun and gentle way of improving fitness and health whilst re-balancing the deeper energetic pathways of the body in which ” restrictive” tension is held. This type of tension can affect us on both physical and emotional level which in turn affects our performance in our daily lifes.
