Yoga therapy could be defined as the systematic application of
Yogic principles and practice to a particular person with the objective of achieving a particular physiological,
spiritual or psychological goal. Therapeutic yoga is an inherently holistic approach, simultaneously working on
the body, mind, and spirit. The means employed are comprised of intelligently conceived steps that include,
but are not limited to

The components of Ashtânga Yoga, which includes the educational teachings of yama, niyama, âsana, prânâyâma, pratyâhâra, dhâranâ, dhyâna, and samâdhi

The application of meditation, textual study, spiritual or psychological counseling, chanting, imagery, prayer, and ritual to meet the needs of the individual

Assessment and holistic treatment planning

The yoga therapist at Fitness Canada Physio and Massage Centre is a clinician who combines sound knowledge in
these principles of yoga therapy with a background in modern medicine.
There is lots of research available to support the clinical benefits of Yoga therapy. While yoga by itself can alleviate a
number of problems, it is particularly effective as a complement to other forms of healthcare, both alternative and conventional.
Studies suggest, for example, that yoga therapy can lessen the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatments for people
with cancer and facilitate faster recovery after bypass surgery.
In clinical trials, many patients with asthma, type 2 diabetes (formerly known as adult-onset diabetes), or high blood pressure,
who began a regular practice of yoga, were able to either lower their drug dosage, or eliminate some pills entirely.
Less medication means fewer side effects, and, sometimes, very substantial cost savings.

Yoga therapy respects individual differences in age, culture, religion, philosophy, occupation, and mental and physical health.
The knowledgeable and competent yogin or yoginî applies yoga therapy according to the period, the place, and the practitioner’s age, strength,
and activities.Various yoga practices systematically strengthen different systems in the body, including the heart and cardiovascular system,
the lungs, muscles, and the nervous system. Yoga practices can improve function of the digestive system, foster psychological well-being,
and improve oxygen delivery to tissues. Yoga also can help the body more efficiently remove waste products, carcinogens, and cellular toxins.
Most people in the West live stressful lives, and yoga – and by extension yoga therapy – is perhaps the best overall stress
reduction system ever invented. Stress has been linked to a wide variety of medical problems, from migraine headaches and irritable bowel
syndrome to potentially life-threatening conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis, and heart disease. Since persistently high levels of stress hormones,
particularly cortisol, can undermine function of the immune system, here too yoga can help.Fitness Canada Physio and Massage Centre offers
both individual and group yoga therapy sessions. The yoga therapist makes a complete assessment based on Indian Ayurvedic principles and
designs a structured Yoga therapy course; based on the individual’s condition and goal, the therapist recommends either one-on-one or group sessions.
The therapist never recommends any internal medications or any alterations in the individual’s other, current treatments.
Our therapists would be happy to guide you based on your requirements and interests.
