Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy is suitable for anyone including those with no yoga experience – adults, teenagers and children. It empowers you to take control of your own health and wellbeing,
regardless of health or fitness. Yoga Therapy uses the tools of yoga – asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), relaxation techniques, lifestyle guidance and/or meditation – to assist the individual. It nourishes physical, mental and emotional wellbeing through its holistic and individualized approach.

Why have Yoga Therapy Sessions?

One to one Yoga Therapy sessions help you to address specific health needs. Yoga therapy can effectively address a wide range of conditions including, but not limited to: joint injuries, back pain, stress, anxiety, asthma, insomnia, depression, arthritis, PTSD, living with autoimmune diseases, women’s health issues and so on. One to one sessions provide a highly individualised program to help you reach your health goals.

About Yoga Therapy Sessions

Yoga Therapy usually requires 2-3 sessions, depending on your needs. The main commitment is a willingness to do some home practice that can be as little as 10 minutes a day – a short daily practice 4-5 times weekly is more effective than one long practice.

Session One involves a thorough assessment to work out your needs & priorities, then working together to create a short personalized home practice. You practice this routine with guidance and instruction, and are given a detailed program to follow at home. This first session is usually 1.25 hours duration.

Session Two is usually held a week or two later to check that you are practicing correctly and to make any adjustments or additions to your practice. This session usually runs for one hour. The number of sessions will depend entirely on your situation and needs; ideally three sessions in the first 6 weeks and less as you progress.
