Yoga can be therapeutic...
but not all practices are right for everyone
Yoga has amazing therapeutic benefits, but if you’ve got a health concern or injury (like 2 in 3 individuals report*), there are yogic practices that could put you at risk.
With 67% of Yoga Professionals voicing a lack of confidence in working with student presenting with a chronic health concern or injury and yogic injuries on the rise, there’s a cause for concern!
If you’re a yoga professional, it’s your responsibility to keep your students and clients safe.
And if you’re an individual with a health concern or current injury, we encourage you to work with a yoga therapist better trained to keep you safe in your practice.

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!

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.
I just purchased the app - It's an incredible resource! Intuitive, accessible, and a wealth of information at your fingertips. Thank you!

I am thrilled about 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!
