For example, Coronary Heart Diseases, Management of Diabetes, Hypertensive Clients, Obesity, and all the other common disorders, for example, Hormone Imbalance and Sleeping disorders. Yoga Therapy tailors Yoga to Individuals, taking into account of their medical condition, constitution, and life situation.

Despite being specialized, Yoga Therapy retains the basic principles and aims of Yoga. Therapy Yoga is based on the holistic concept and therefore includes a balanced set of practices that calms and vitalizes the mind and body, as well as acting on diseased parts.
