Yoga Therapy often is prescribed one-on-one for those who need or prefer to participate in a private or semi-private setting due to a specific condition/injury or ailment.  This individualized attention at Santa Rosa Yoga Therapy is necessary for determining and initiating the most therapeutic yoga sequencing for a particular condition.  Yoga therapists work alongside physiatrists (physicians who specialize in pain), chiropractors, and physical therapists to determine a comprehensive and holistic approach to healing through yoga therapy methodology.   Some of the many ailments successfully treated with yoga therapy include:  chronic lower and upper back problems, hypertension and heart disease, asthma, and diabetes. A good yoga therapist often works in conjunction with or is recommended by a physician and other medical professionals (as noted) and has specific and advanced yoga training/certification.
