Welcome to Yoga-Therapy!

Welcome to yoga-therapy.net. Here, you will be able to learn about how yoga affects your overall health and how it can relieve the stresses of your daily life even when you don’t devote an entire hour to it.

Simply put, our bodies need to be moving constantly throughout the day, and when we sleep, it is supposed to be our recharge period, right? Well, that's wrong. While our bodies will heal during sleep, ask yourself one question: Do you wake up every day feeling refreshed and renewed? If not, well, why not? This is due to many factors that range from mental stress, down to the way we breath. 90% of these factors can be made better or even eliminated when one regularly practices yoga.

Now, don’t worry. I know I just said “…regularly practices…”  when a paragraph before I basically said the opposite. Well, you don’t have to do yoga every single day of the week and every single week of the month and every single month of the year. That’s quite a daunting regimen. I think even yoga instructors get days off. No, all you have to do is devote the time you are willing and you will feel better for it. I know people who do yoga five days a week for two hours, and, while they possess a lot of unimportant flexibility and are very fit, they get just as much stress relief as those I know who practice for fifteen minutes every day, every other day.

So now is a good time to ask yourself what you want to do. Do you want some serious yoga that will allow you to bend backwards into a handstand while doing the splits? (I hear that’s what those yoga-philes do, but they’re also able to maintain sun’s pose the whole time. …Just kidding.) Or do you want the simple, care-free, stress-relieving yoga routines that will help improve flexibility, strength, and overall well-being? I can help you with both. Go ahead and click around to find what you’re looking for. Have fun!
