Unlike a group yoga class, a yoga therapy session is structured to the needs and abilities of a single student by a certified yoga therapist (CYT) who has extensive training using yoga to help manage conditions such as cancer, grief, depression, chronic pain, MS, fibromyalgia and other challenging health issues. If needed, a CYT often works with a student’s health care provider to ensure complete and balanced care is provided.

Yoga therapy can help relieve discomfort and create more vitality.
