But not all practices are safe for every body
Everyone deserves access to this wisdom. YogaMate & Yoga Therapeutics Pro hope to shift western misperception that Yoga = asana (physical postures). If you can breathe you can practice Yoga.

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!

As a certified yoga therapist, I am elated to have such an amazing tool at my finger tips. Yoga Therapeutics Pro will allow 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!
When you’re about to teach a class and a new student present with a health concern or injury, can you keep them safe?
Yoga Therapeutics Pro was developed to help you quickly discern which yogic practices you might need to avoid (and which might be beneficial) when a student presents with a health challenge.
Dive deep into the full ins and outs of each practice – benefits, therapeutic application and concerns along with the description and modifications.

Yoga can provide profound benefits to an individual's health and well-being. Learn more about how Yoga can be therapeutically applied to help support over 100 health challenges. Search the evidence based benefits and therapeutic applications for more than 350 different Yogic practices (including postures, breath work, meditations & relaxation as well as yogic philosophy).
Health Concerns & Injuries
Yoga can be safely practiced by EVERYONE. Indeed, if you can breathe, you can practice Yoga. 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. Keep them safer - with the knowledge in the palms of your hands.
