The corrective therapeutic approach to yoga practice will be based on recognizing the connection between asanas and their schedule, body posture and staying in certain postures with the treatment of certain types of illnesses or problems, or as a prevention of them in the practitioner. The yogis have long realized that the remedy for various imbalances lies within themselves, and they have transformed their experience into natural therapy that aims at a more efficient functioning of the system, the prevention and treatment of imbalances throughout the body. The characteristic of Corrective Therapeutic Yoga is that asanas are performed with the help of props (bricks, belts, bolsters, chairs, blankets, pillows, ropes, planks) so that different parts of the body are positioned at a specific place, the so-called ideal point, and thus reach their greatest potential.
The training focuses on 3 key aspects:
1. Alignment, allowing the body to harmonically develop itself at anatomy level, eliminating the possibility of pain or getting hurt. Through categorical asana practice, the whole body and mind are devoted to training function, trainee extends the consciousness till the smallest body parts and mind reaches the full state of attention, wakefulness and sharpness.
2. A correctly done asana sequence is the precondition to reach the maximum effect. The choice and order of asanas intensify mental and emotional effect all over the entire being.
3. Time of taking and holding the pose, that is, timing. A trainee is guided to learn how to go into asana and how much time he/she is to stay in it. Corrective Therapeutic Yoga combines eight disciplines of Yoga (according to the teachings of Patanjali), with a particular aspect to asanas and their significance.
The methodology and proper order of asanas within Corrective Therapeutic Yoga Practice plays a very significant role in maximizing the benefits of sequences. Students will learn how to approach each student individually with the development of a personal therapy card for a certain period of time. The characteristic of Corrective Therapeutic Yoga is an individual approach, and a personal therapeutic card is used as a tool only in this type of yoga.
