Yoga Therapy Clinic at Islington
Why try Yoga Therapy?
"Yoga as medicine represents the next great yoga wave. In the next few years, we will be seeing a lot more yoga in health care settings and more yoga recommended by the medical community as new research shows that yoga is a valuable therapeutic tool for many health conditions."- Kaitlin Quistgaard, editor in chief of Yoga Journal.
