Yoga therapy is typically conducted one-on-one or in small groups. It is resembles meeting a physical therapist rather than a typical yoga class. Yoga therapy takes a whole-body approach, assessing each person’s overall health and working with whatever limitations are present. This approach also considers mental health, sometimes using a combination of talk therapy and movement, under the assumption that mental and physical wellness are integrated. Individual assessment is key, since two people with similar conditions could have very different medical histories or complicating factors that would result in a different course of treatment.
It links movement to deep rhythmic breathing and emphases relaxation. It encompasses a broad range of methods and purposes. In terms of physical health, this can be rehabilitative, curative, preventative, or to manage a chronic condition with the goal of improving quality of life.

“My sciatica manifested as a burning pain that started right from my neck and radiated out at the calf. I lost full range of motion and could not bend forward. Sciatica being a nerve pain, one cannot massage it to make it better. Despite many pain killers and physiotherapy, I had absolutely no relief. I was in agony and it seemed to get worse at night. So I couldn’t sleep either.
In the absence of any relief from allopathy and physiotherapy, I approached Mr Arun Prakash from Jeevana Yoga. With his yoga therapy I found a lot of relief on the first day itself. In two weeks time I was completely fine and also was able to travel to the US.”
