So I am currently reading this really interesting book called "Yoga as Medicine: The Yogic Perscription for Health and Healing" by Timothy McCall. It explains the different types of yoga and explains how different things benefit each individual. It also discusses the benefits of yoga therapy and how either small classes or one on one therapy can be good because it is more individualized.
I am very interested in yoga as therapy for people who would otherwise think that they are not physically fit enough to do yoga. I currently have balance and dizziness issues from my brain tumor, and also am not very flexible because I have had my spine fused due to scoliosis. Therefore, there are some things that I cannot do. However, what I am able to do has helped me feel tremendously better! I really want to be able to help people with yoga who think that there is no way that they could do it. And I had this thought that I could learn how to teach yoga and become a yoga therapist (maybe for people who have limitations), but I am not sure how I would go about this or if this idea is stupid and a waste of my time? Maybe I wouldn't be a good yoga therapist because I do have some health issues? I don't know. What do you all think? Is this just a crazy idea that I have? Any suggestions are completely welcome! Thank you!
