Yoga class versus a yoga therapy session…
In a yoga class the yoga teacher puts together a yoga routine and gives cues and modifications to poses throughout the class. The teacher will help students as much as possible with alignment during the class but many times it is up to the student to know how to use props in order to modify a pose.
In a yoga therapy session, Clients are seeking help with or relief from some symptom or health condition that is troubling them. Therapists look for ways to help their clients reduce or manage their symptoms, improve their function, and help them with their attitude in relation to their health conditions. After assessing clients, therapists establish appropriate goals, develop a practice intervention, and then teach clients to practice that intervention. Yoga therapists choose yoga techniques in relation to how they will specifically benefit individual clients including poses, breathwork, meditation, mudra and ayurvedic techniques.
