Yoga therapy is designed to treat the mind, and spirit to heal the body from the inside out. Breathing and energy are tied together, and through Yoga therapy, it teaches a person how to control their breathing. Once a person can control their breathing, they can control their body and mind. Once they have complete control, it is easy to fall into the required meditative and relaxed state. Controlling breathing is the first lesson in every form of therapy. Yoga therapy is no different. It is the first step and the most important. Therapy brings a person to peace and healing. It gets a person out of their head and all the worries of the world. It puts them in a present moment of focusing on the balance of the different poses. We have all heard that the mind is a powerful thing, and doing this for ourselves is impressive.
