Yoga Therapy cultivates body/mind integration and a sense of harmony with modern life. Yoga Therapy promotes the innate healing resources of the body, helping restore the proper functioning of the various bodily systems.
Yoga Therapy has evolved through the natural combination of traditional yoga with modern medicine. By tailoring yoga practices to individual needs, whilst taking medical considerations into account, Yoga Therapy creates a positive effective practice specific to the client and assists in the treatment of various medical conditions including anxiety, back pain, arthritis, hypertension, heart conditions, hyperventilation, asthma, digestive problems, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome (ME), fibromyalgia, RSI, migraine, insomnia, anxiety, depression and stress. Yoga Therapy can also promote positive health in people of all ages.
I offer Yoga Therapy with individuals through one-to-one sessions or in small therapy groups and will usually include practising a series of postures specifically designed around your health needs. It can include Yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation or mindfulness practice and supporting techniques such as relaxation, visualisation and using sound. Yoga Therapy can be practiced in conjunction with medical treatments you are already receiving, and also in tandem with other complementary therapies. No prior experience of yoga is necessary.
During your initial session, I will be finding out all about you and your needs. Information about your energy levels, sleep pattern, diet, previous medical history and stress triggers – will help me to bring you back into balance. You will leave with a carefully written plan of instructions, so you can practice on your own.
Sessions can be arranged weekly, monthly or as often as suits you. They can be held in your home, or at various Yoga Centres I am affiliated to. Prices will be tailored dependent on location, if the session is a one to one or small group and travel costs.
Please contact me for an introduction and initial discussion on this offering.
