Yoga Therapy: A True System of Healing

"In Holistic Health the goal is to bring balance to every aspect that is unique to the human experience. It involves balancing the mind to fully live in the present, with knowledge from the past and vision for the future. Holistic Health perfects the use of the emotions solely as a growth process with each emotion that is felt. It also aligns the physical body with nature to maintain youth and longevity to fulfill purpose. Lastly, Holistic Health teaches that everything is of the spiritual realm and the mastering of this aspect of life is the goal of the manifestation of divine energy. "

There are also various areas of wellness that must be adhered to for the benefits of Yoga Therapy to be complete.
