Yoga has a wide range of physical and emotional benefits, from increased flexibility to improved mental clarity. Yoga therapy, on the other hand, is a bit different from the yoga that you may be familiar with. It is a combination of yoga and psychology.

Yoga therapists not only seek to heal your physical body and help you obtain balance, but they also work to improve your unique mental and emotional concerns to help you feel better.

Yoga therapy utilizes a variety of techniques to heal the whole person, including:

  • Psychological counseling
  • Tak therapy
  • Body stretching and movement
  • Meditation
  • Breathwork.

This is not an exhaustive list. Your yoga therapist may use other techniques to promote healing.

Wherever you are located in New York from Albany to Yonkers or even Niagara Falls, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Yoga Therapy Benefits

Yoga’s mental health benefits are numerous, including:

  • Better sleep and reduced insomnia.

Getting yoga therapy from a licensed therapist or counselor amplifies its mental and emotional benefits. If you are interested in yoga therapy, licensed therapist Amanda Vargo writes about how yoga can help manage anxiety.
