For centuries, the science of Yoga has been used to enhance physical and emotional well being. Now, the therapeutic potential of yoga is being rediscovered in the modern world. When yoga is practiced with therapeutic intention -- Yoga Therapy -- it can prevent, or aid recovery from, physical and mental ailments.
IYTC is a forum that explores the specific and profound ways in which yoga can aid in maintaining good health or recovery from illness. The event also fills a vital role in public health and wellness education, bridging the gap between the yoga and the medical establishment, a much needed connection.
