Yogatherapy aims at the holistic approach of various kinds of imbalances, ranging from back problems to emotional distress. It represents a first effort to integrate traditional yogic concepts and techniques with western science. Yoga naturopaths indicate specific regimens of postures, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques to suit individual needs. The challenges may be an imbalance, a temporary condition like pregnancy or a chronic state associated with age. The goal is to return the body systems to a natural equilibrium.
