The Bermuda Yoga Therapy Association is a membership association comprised, at the moment of four members all of whom also are sitting board members. The board-'s aim is to set policy as it relates to the aims and goals of the organization. Membership is open to yoga teachers, yoga therapists and other health care professionals who wish to use yoga as therapy in their professional therapy practice.
The aim of this association is to educate, advocate, mentor and promote for greater understanding, development, education and direction, for the use of yoga as therapy in our Bermuda community. Yoga therapy is the therapeutic application of yoga to enhance wellness and help individuals with acute and chronic health conditions. It is meant to be a compliment, not a replacement to mainstream medicine and has been safely used for post-operative cancer and heart surgery patients, patients with chronic back pain and other chronic pain problems, auto-immune conditions and for patients suffering from depression, anxiety, grief and a myriad of structural health complaints etc.
As an advocate organization the Bermuda Yoga Therapy Association is keen to do its share to help draw down the cost of health care in Bermuda. It is a know fact that the cost of health care in Bermuda trumpets that of all other countries in the development world, save that of the United States of America. Show Less
