ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Tamara Gillest

Health is a balance. In 1948 the World Health Organization defined health as “a complete state of physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” For good health we require strength, flexibility, structural alignment, proper functioning of body systems and mental steadiness. Yoga therapy- a new kid on the healing block in some ways compliments Western medicine and other healing modalities such as physiotherapy, massage, chiropractor and acupuncture.
Yoga therapy is all about treating the whole person: mind, body and spirit. The International Association of Yoga Therapists states “yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well being through the application of the teachings and practices of yoga.” It is based on the belief that human beings are born with the ability to heal and need only to remove the physical, emotional and spiritual blocks in order to let that natural ability shine through.
