Yoga is the science of self evolution and wholeness; it is the quest of aligning with our higher nature. Regular practice develops our body and subtle energy systems that promote greater awareness, wellbeing and health. The practice of yoga is therefore fundamentally therapeutic. Yoga Therapy focuses on the therapeutic aspects of yoga to facilitate healing; working with the physical aspects of the body as well as dealing with mental and emotional factors through meditation, deep relaxation, restorative poses, Pranayama (breathing exercises) and chanting. Yoga is both preventive and curative as it has a profound healing effect on body, mind and soul, restoring balance and harmony to our lives. Book your Yoga Teacher Training Spain now.
