What is the difference between yoga therapy and other types of yoga classes?
Yoga therapy is taught by a yoga teacher that has been through an extensive training program which includes a deeper study of anatomy and physiology, lessons targeted toward specific illnesses or health conditions, and knowledge of how to tailor a yoga program for an individual's specific needs.
Although classic yoga therapy is mostly taught privately in one-on-one sessions, all of Ocean City Yoga instructors weave elements of therapeutic yoga into their group classes as well so that sessions are both safe and effective for all levels.
