The power of yoga therapy—Try it for yourself!

Watch Steffany Moonaz, PhD, C-IAYT, explain how yoga therapy can support wellness regardless of physical condition—and even in the face of significant health challenges. As one client said,

“I realized, ‘This is my life. It isn’t what everyone has to deal with, but it’s my life, and I have tools. … I don’t have to do this alone.'”

Steffany is the director of clinical and academic research at Maryland University of Integrative Health, which offers a Master of Science in Yoga Therapy degree.
