What is Occupational Therapy combined with Yoga Therapy?

I am an Occupational Therapist at Renew Neurotherapy and offer yoga therapy sessions. These are one-on-one sessions, either in your home or at our clinic, that can be combined with other treatments to help you overcome a wide range of issues such as brain injury, concussion, trauma and PTSD, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, spinal cord injury and dementia. So, how does this work?
