How does a Yoga Therapist differ from a Yoga Teacher?

A Yoga Therapist has an extra 800 hours or training in adapting and modifying yoga for various health conditions. A Yoga Therapist is more qualified and has the training to be able to work with specific injuries and illnesses. I am a Yoga Therapist with over 15 years experience.

 

A Yoga Therapist sees most people initially in a one-to-one setting.

Who could benefit from Yoga Therapy?

Anyone who wants to feel ease and vitality in their body and mind and discover how yoga can support healing , health and wholeness.

 

I have over 15 years of experience and routinely works with:

 

  • Back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Anxiety and low mood
  • Side effects of cancer treatment
  • PTSD and trauma
  • Persistent pain
  • Lifestyle diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Disease

What age group or people do you specifically see?

I predominantly work with beginners and people who are suffering from illness or injury. My clientele tend to be men and women over the age of 40, however I do have younger clients who benefit from my style and therapy. I will conduct a 1:1 session with you to determine if my therapy is right for you.

What can I expect from a Yoga Therapy session?

During a Yoga Therapy session Margie will take a comprehensive history to fully assess and address your individual needs and goals . Then we will explore various movement, breathing practices, relaxations or meditations that are tailored to support your well being.

 

Margery will design a short home Yoga practice video for you that you can incorporate into your daily routine that will create new pathways in your body and mind leading to feelings of calm, contentment and insight

What is the Feldenkrais Method?

The Feldenkrais Method is a unique, highly effective approach to improving the way you move, think and feel. Feldenkrais can help you:

  • Recover fluid movement
  • Relieve pain and tension
  • Realise natural posture
  • Reconnect to your body 

The Feldenkrais Method uses gentle, creative and fluid movement explorations to integrate our awareness of how we move and assists us to break habits and patterns that cause us to unnecessarily tense and hold our bodies. This chronic holding and lack of awareness predisposes us to injury and pain and inhibits our ability to move well.

How to Yoga and Feldenkrais differ from other forms of treatment?

Yoga and Feldenkrais are ACTIVE forms of treatment . They effect change in a sustainable way as you are doing the therapy to yourself rather than having it done to you in a passive way. This means you are changing your habits, patterns and your nervous system towards integration and body / mind healing.

What style of Yoga do you teach?

I teach a breath centred or slow flown type yoga that can be adapted to all bodies and needs.

I also incorporate Yin Yoga , Mindfulness mediation , sound and yoga nidra (classic and Irest)

 

Feldenkrais principles permeate all my teaching which I believe supports my success as a Yoga Therapist .

I've never done Yoga before and I'm stiff and a bit hesitant to try yoga, can you help me?

Most definitely !!

 

That is exactly why you need a Yoga Therapist; to meet you where you are and gently progress you safely and effectively with guidance and support towards feeling better.

How often do I need to see you?

Initially  weekly for 3-4 sessions then monthly for review – though each persons needs are considered unique so this is just a guide. Many people opt to join weekly class once they feel confident .
