Yoga therapy (how to use yoga practice for a disease?) is going to be very famous all over the world, in yoga therapy we learn that how to use yoga practices (asana, pranayama,mudra,bandha meditation) for a disease. The process of yoga therapy is based on selecting sequencing of yoga technique. According to the Patanjali Vyadhi (disease) is an obstacle of yoga it means if someone have a disease they should practice yoga for disease then for spirituality.

In yoga therapy we talk about a disease and there causes then we select yoga practice for that disease. Now days we have a lot type of yoga and sometime it's very hard to decide that which one is the right yoga practice for us ? Because everyone body type is deferent that time yoga therapy help us to fined right practice for us. We are living in very materialistic world and we having lots of problem and yoga therapy is the best option we have that can reduce our problems.
