Therapeutic Yoga

Therapeutic yoga is a form of yoga that focuses on using postures, breathing, and meditation to address specific physical or mental health issues. It is a holistic practice that seeks to promote healing, relieve pain and improve overall well-being.

What is therapeutic yoga?

Additional section on the relationship between yoga and osteopathy

Therapeutic yoga and osteopathy are two complementary disciplines. They can work together to offer a comprehensive approach to healing and wellness.

Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine that uses physical contact to diagnose and treat health problems. Osteopaths can help improve the mobility and function of joints, muscles, and connective tissues.

It can also help prepare the body for osteopathic treatment, increasing flexibility and mobility. It can also help maintain the results of osteopathic treatment in the long term.

At Quiroesencia, a massage and yoga center in Granada, we offer therapeutic yoga classes and osteopathy sessions.

Our professionals are trained to create a personalized treatment plan that meets each client's individual needs.
