What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga therapy is an evidenced based, complimentary intervention that can work in conjunction with existing treatments to provide relief from pain, strengthen the immune system, manage stress and anxiety.Yoga therapy sessions are client-led, client-focused, and compassion-focused. Yoga therapy meets each and every person where they are, we are after all the very best knowledge on ourselves. It can enhance body and postural awareness, develop mindfulness, increase strength, joint freedom and flexibility, improve cardiovascular fitness and digestive health.

Yoga therapy is steeped in traditional yoga practice and philosophy.

What happens in One to One Yoga Therapy Sessions?

An initial consultation takes place over the phone. There is no charge for this.

The first session is a comprehensive assessment to discuss your unique and individual needs, your health concerns. The assessment includes analysis of structure, movement and breathing.

Putting together a yoga therapy plan we look at how yoga may help you and any pratice for you to do at home, this is likely to include yoga postures, breathing, meditation and mindfulness exercises. We will also discuss other forms of treatments you are currently using and how these can be used in conjunction with yoga.

Usually a program of six sessions is put together and each week we will review and assess your progress and needs, modifying and introducing new aspects to your practice to help support you.

Yoga therapy aims to support people in developing the skills and techniques to help them live their lives with, reduced incidence of pain, improved health and mental wellbeing.
