Yoga Journal published a recent article on Yoga Therapy. This is the type of yoga I teach and focus on these last several years. “In yoga therapy, we work on individuals, not conditions,” says McCall, a former internist who now trains yoga therapists with his wife, Eliana Moreira McCall, at their Summit, New Jersey, yoga therapy center.
Yoga therapy looks at the entire person not just the problem that brought them there. There are some amazing teachers like Bo Forbes, Annie Carpenter, Jill Miller, Jules Mitchell and Trina Altman who have really pioneered the field of yoga therapy.
Yoga therapy is about healing, breathing, slowing down and embodying. This often gets lost in your typical vinyasa/flow or power yoga class that most pop-culture yogis are exposed to. Additionally, I use life coaching and energy work integrated into yoga therapy sessions with clients and find it to be very effective in generating even greater health and wellness.
