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.

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.
Search by health concerns, practice categories or practice benefits. Use English or Sanskrit. Learn. Share. Empower.
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).
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.
Search practices in English or Sanskrit, by specific health concerns or drill down by category / focus. Want to see which practices are cautioned for people with anxiety? Or have someone present with high blood pressure? Quickly be reminded which practices are safe (and most importantly, which aren't!). Plus, extend your knowledge with access to some of YogaMate's best professional development webinars on Yoga Therapy.
