Modern societies are fertile grounds for stress, depression, and anxieties, which if ignored in the longer run, may develop into life-threatening conditions. Most people you know would benefit from yoga therapy. Moreover, it also opens an opportunity for you to become a yoga therapist yourself with more practice and experience in the future.
Yoga therapy is beneficial for health in ways that modern science is just beginning to understand. Most of your health problems origin from a state of ignorance of who and what you are. Every imbalance and illness involves a certain level of energy blockage. By increasing the flow of prana, or vital force, yoga combats those blockages, restoring the basic condition for harmony and health.
The effect of yoga therapy is clinically documented. Medical research shows that yoga therapy is among the most effective complementary therapies for many common ailments. Worldwide, it is increasingly recognized as a scientific approach to healing and is increasingly practiced in the ordinary health system.
Yoga therapy is based on the principles of Hatha yoga, which is practiced in a therapeutical way. A sequence of pranayamas and asanas are practiced in an easily accessible and therapeutical manner that targets specific diseases. Asanas are selected to stretch specified parts of the body and block others. However, you must remember that in the case of serious or congenital disabilities, practicing asanas may not result in full recovery, but in many cases, it can alleviate some of the suffering associated with the condition.
Asanas and other yogi methods need to be practiced with patience and diligence over a period of time to attain relief or cure. In addition, yoga calms the nerves and reduces the pain thus bringing the troubled entity (pain) to the minimum levels. Meditation and pranayama accelerate the healing process. A cure is never forced, rather, the body must be allowed to heal at its own pace.
Scientifically, yoga therapy has proven to be effective in treating more than 55 chronic diseases and conditions with ample evidence. Yoga is holistic. Diseases manifest only when your body, mind, and soul are out of balance. The belief is to enable the human system to function as efficiently, effectively, and naturally as it can, and the pace may sometimes be slow. Yoga therapy begins with understanding the entire human body and the way it functions.
The origins and development of the ailment are carefully studied, particularly the most affected parts of the body. The aim is not simply to cure the symptoms but to target the cause holistically. Yoga addresses every muscle, bone, organ, tissues, and cell of the body. Therapeutic yoga treatments are not only limited to curing minor or major chronic diseases but also life-threatening and fatal diseases such as cancer.
