The use of Yogic principles and methodologies with a therapeutic intention is today known as Yoga Therapy, and is gaining increasing popularity. Most importantly, it is becoming an effective option for those that tired of unsuccessful attempts to improve through western medicine protocols decide to seek alternative options. Yoga Therapy is now scientifically proven to be helpful in preventing and aiding in the recovery from physical and mental ailments.
