What is the difference between a yoga teacher and a yoga therapist?

The FYoga therapist training, provides insights ofbio-medicine and psycho-traumatology, as well as other significant differences.Therapeutic yoga is oriented clinically, personalized, drove from medical history e based on science.

In general, yoga teachers hold group classes and the focus tends to be on teaching a range of movements, regardless of the needs of the individual who may have specific physical or mental health needs. What is sometimes not taken into account is thatnot all yoga poses, breathing techniques or relaxation practices are suitable for everyone and, in some cases, can be highly contraindicated.A yoga therapist, due to his multidisciplinary training, has the knowledge to recognize when and how to adapt yoga practices according to the needs of the individual he is guiding in the practice.

Mi sono avvicinata allo yoga grazie a Maria Elena avendo grosse disabilità non credevo potessi riuscire, ma grazie a Lei sì... Non sono mai riuscita a rilassarmi fino in fondo, ma con la tecnica di rilassamento che insegna è riuscita quasi a farmi addormentare, tanto che le ho chiesto di farmi un vocale in modo che tutte le sere io lo possa ascoltare e rilassarmi con la sua voce... Grazie mille di cuore

Ero molto diffidente rispetto allo yoga, ho partecipato a qualche lezione su zoom con i miei colleghi e mi sono dovuto ricredere. Ora non perdo mai il nostro appuntamento settimanale.


Non mi tocco i piedi con la punta del naso, ma è successo qualcosa di meglio, dormo e respiro molto meglio!
