What is Yoga Therapy? 

And how is it different from just yoga? 


Here’s how the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) defines Yoga Therapy: 


“Although all yoga is potentially therapeutic and healing, yoga therapy is the specific application of yogic tools—postures/exercises, breathwork, meditation techniques, and more—to address an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional needs.”


Essentially, it is a yoga therapist’s job to help their clients build a yoga practice to address their specific needs, using well-researched tools & resources to intentionally support their physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual well-being. 

It is also important to recognize and understand what yoga therapy is NOT. It is not a replacement for medicine, and yoga therapists are not MDs. They cannot diagnose or cure an illness or disease. Yoga therapists are here to support and complement the treatment you may already be getting, and many can and do provide referrals for other health care practitioners if requested.


Who is Yoga Therapy for? 

Certainly anyone and everyone, as we all likely have something going on that could use our care. Every yoga therapist has a different set of interests, and a different wheelhouse, but has received extensive training in how to therapeutically address many different kinds of disease/illness with yoga. Yoga therapy can help with alleviating chronic pain, physical rehabilitation from injury, addressing symptoms of illness or disease, including some neurological conditions and mental illnesses. Most yoga therapists tend to specialize in one area.

Yoga Therapy with Cami can support you if you are struggling with:

  • Depression, anxiety

  • Self-harm and/or suicidality

  • Trauma, PTSD and C-PTSD

  • ADHD

  • OCD

  • Psychosis or schizophrenia

  • Eating disorders and/or body dysmorphic disorder 

  • Emotional or behavioral dysregulation

  • Negative, limiting, and/or self-sabotaging beliefs/behaviors and low self-esteem

  • Pre/peri/post-natal mental and physical health


Cami’s approach to yoga therapy for mental health stems from training both in yoga and psychology/neuroscience, with the purpose of combining these approaches to support total well-being. Though deemed “mental” illness, many researchers have made very clear the deep connection between the physical and mental well-being, which is why a somatic approach to mental health is not only beneficial, but necessary. As Cami often says, “you can’t heal from the neck up.” Regardless of diagnoses, Cami’s modality of offering is always trauma-sensitive; to learn more about what trauma-informed yoga is, click here.
