Yoga Therapy


Although symptoms are well treated by modern medicine, yoga therapy addresses the underlying problems that lead to symptoms. Yoga therapy frequently treats psycho-somatic disorders that arise from stress and anxiety in addition to obvious illnesses. Because yoga can go beyond the restrictions of the Annamaya Kosha (physical sheath), it can address these deeply ingrained emotional blockages that are invisible to the physical eye.

Anamaya Kosha, or Gross Body Level; Pranamaya Kosha, or Subtle Body Level; Manomaya Kosha, or Mental Level; Vijnanamaya Kosha, or Intuitive Level; and Anandamaya Kosha, or Blissful State, are the five sheaths through which yoga therapy proceeds methodically. The age-old yogic tenet "Aathi leads to Vyathi," suggests that mental disturbance (Aathi) shows up as bodily disease (Vyathi). Yoga therapy helps people become more fully themselves and to lead happy, healthy lives by resolving these imbalances throughout the koshas.

Initial Concepts of Yoga Therapy Outline

The reasons behind the utilization of Haṭha Vidyã's Yoga therapy

More than only postures, Hatha Yoga is one of the most important yogic disciplines. Therapeutic benefits are a logical byproduct of this holistic purification science. Keeping to the principles of Hatha Yoga, Hatha Vidya provides a special yoga therapy program. With this program, yoga teachers are empowered to safely and effectively guide students with a range of health issues and limitations within the framework of yoga practice, rather than concentrating on medical diagnosis or treatment.

There are two stages to the yoga therapy program at Hatha Yoga Traditional School of Yoga. The 300 hours of the Foundation Level give you a solid basis in therapeutic yoga concepts. Building on this foundation, the 500-hour Advanced Level certifies you to guide a larger audience and deepens your knowledge.

Hatha Vidya feels that information by itself is inadequate. Being a unique practice, yoga therapy is best taught by people with years of experience and knowledge in the area. That is why Acharya Bala, your committed mentor who walks you through every step, and three well-known yoga dignitaries from India make up our faculty. This special combination guarantees you to learn not only theory but also real-world understanding of how various yoga techniques can affect people differently.

And last, Yoga Alliance International endorses our Yoga Therapy courses, giving your credentials legitimacy and global recognition. This guarantees your place as a competent and well-rounded yoga instructor. Come experience something special and transforming at Hatha Vidya that will give you the abilities you need to lead students to a healthier life.


Haṭha Yoga is a scientific discipline that aims to achieve complete purification, ultimately yielding therapeutic benefits. It serves as a precursor to personal enlightenment and is an essential health discipline. In retrospect, it has proven to be efficacious in eradicating numerous maladies and defects.

Yoga Therapy works in four dimensions



Adhering to the saying "prevention is better than cure," yoga therapy integrates practices that help prevent diseases. By improving body alignment, strengthening muscles, enhancing self-awareness, increasing flexibility, and potentially lowering blood pressure, yoga therapy promotes a healthy lifestyle.



Yoga therapy demonstrates positive effects on chronic illnesses. It improves the medical condition of people and aids in recovery when supplemented with other treatments.



Yoga therapy also has curative aspects, focusing on the body's healing potential. Through specific breathing techniques, detoxification exercises, and muscle stretches, it can rejuvenate the body, reduce pain, and release tension and other symptoms associated with illness. 



Palliative yoga therapy manages the psychological aspects of chronic pain. By easing anxiety and depression, it enhances patients' quality of life.

Yoga therapy can improve the overall well-being of an individual; however, it has certain limitations. It cannot substitute for medical treatments or medication
