A growing number of yoga practitioners around the world are choosing training in osteopathic medicine and successfully incorporating osteopathic principles into their practice. Osteopathy, a holistic manual therapy, and yoga, a thousand year old philosophy, share remarkable parallels in their approach to healing:
Both disciplines determine health by one's emotional well being and physical balance
Postural alignment, joint mobility, and diaphragmatic flexibility are essential components of good health
The human body, given the right support, has an inherent capacity to heal itself
