Yoga means union of the body, mind and spirit. The practices date back to more than 5000 years.
In a general yoga class, you may learn:
Asana - postures
Pranayama - breathing for more life force and vitality in the body
Relaxation - a rest period to incorporate what you have learned
Meditation - time to go within to learn to calm the mind
There are a variety of classes available. Try a beginner's class to start. Try different teachers to find one who resonates with you. Yoga classes are held for a larger, mixed group of people. When considering creating a more yogic lifestyle, one might consider Ayurveda as well.
Therapeutic yoga is usually one on one basis, and may be for a smaller, specialized group of people with specific needs like back care, stress relief, asthma, heart disease, cancer, etc. Individual sessions focus on your needs.
Those who teach therapeutic yoga are trained more specifically in the areas in which they teach. In Therapeutic yoga, the needs of each person are discussed together with the yoga teacher and a unique plan is designed. Once the practice session is planned, the individual learns techniques to take home with them, making the yoga practice more integrated into their very lifestyle. Periodic consultations are then set up as a way to assess the changes that occur as a result of the sessions, and make adjustments to the practice plan as needed.
