Health Concerns & Injuries

Yet, not all practices are safe for every one and some yogic practices are strongly cautioned for specific health concerns. If someone walks into your class with a history of stroke, or a herniated disc, can you keep them safe in their practice? As their teacher, it's your responsibility.

As a certified yoga therapist, I am elated to have such an amazing tool at my finger tips. Yoga Therapeutics Pro allows me to continue to exceed my clients needs by serving as a resource to verify or gain additional information about conditions that my clients are faced with. As a yoga teacher trainer this tool will be a wonderful resource for the trainees in my yoga teacher training yoga programs. Thanks for centralizing such valuable information!

This is the best, smoothest, easiest to navigate app I have ever used. Soooo easy to use and so informative. It's a game changer.

Yoga Teacher, Yoga Therapist, Ontario CA
I am thrilled about the launch of Yoga Therapeutics Pro. When a student lets me know about a health condition right before class, I have information at my fingertips to ensure they can practice safely; and when I am looking for inspiration for my practice or the next class I teach, I can scroll through the categories. And with this app, my yoga therapy clients are empowered to experiment with new poses safely and effectively. Well done!
