The traditional transmission of Yoga is one on one, teacher to student. We can each benefit from time to time from the privilege of personal instruction, where practices can best be tailored for individual healing. A Yoga therapy session or consultation with a master teacher can touch on a broad range of topics including building a radiant personal practice; concerns regarding diet, sleep, fertility, contentment etc.

Contemporary Definitions of Yoga Therapy

"Yoga therapy is a self-empowering process, where the care-seeker, with the help of the Yoga therapist, implements a personalized and evolving Yoga practice, that not only addresses the illness in a multi-dimensional manner, but also aims to alleviate his/her suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner. Depending upon the nature of the illness, Yoga therapy can not only be preventative or curative, but also serve a means to manage the illness, or facilitate healing in the person at all levels" – TKV Desikachar & Kaustaub Desikachar 

"Yoga therapy may be defined as the application of yogic principles to a particular person with the objective of achieving a particular spiritual, psychological, or physiological goal. The means employed are comprised of intelligently conceived steps that include but are not limited to the components of Ashtanga Yoga, which includes the educational teachings of yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, and samadhi. Also included are the application of meditation, textual study, spiritual or psychological counseling, chanting, imagery, prayer, and ritual to meet the needs of the individual. Yoga therapy respects individual differences in age, culture, religion, philosophy, occupation, and mental and physical health. The knowledgeable and competent yogin or yogini applies Yoga Therapy according to the period, the place, and the practitioner's age, strength, and activities." - Gary Kraftsow, American Viniyoga Institute
