What Is Yoga Therapy and how can it help me?

 

In a nutshell a Yoga Therapist personalises Yoga, so it is a good fit for you whatever your current situation. As a Yoga Therapist I have many years of extra training and skills which guide me to adapt the tools of Yoga so you can participate effectively and safely and reap the myriads of benefits yoga has to offer.

 

Yoga Is slow medicine; building resilience in your body and mind from the inside out; sustainably. This means yoga transforms your habits of movement, breath, mind leading to a more authentic, joyful, grateful and compassionate you.

 

Yoga Therapy can improve your quality of life and help you manage the impact of most health issues. Yoga supports balance in your nervous system and has a positive impact on all the systems in the body.

 

Modern life can easily get on top of us leading to a vicious cycle of pain, stress, low energy and low mood. Yoga supports you to actively create beneficial changes in your body. By reducing the fight or flight response and enhancing the relaxation part of the nervous system Yoga addresses the root causes of many chronic conditions.

 

As Yoga is a mind body practice the complexities of our human nature are harnessed to teach us how to heal and thrive using the power of mindful movement, breath, intention and deep relaxation.

 

There is a mounting evidence base that is confirming what yogis for centuries have found; yoga is an effective and potent way to transform your health.

 

During a Yoga Therapy session, we will explore in a safe and nurturing environment the tools of yoga that suit you to commence your yoga journey. You will leave the session feeling refreshed and relaxed and ready for more.

 

Together we will develop a personalised practice that addresses your needs. Then I cancreate a short movie so that with ease you can recreate a Yoga session in the comfort of your home on a regular basis. This is an effective and sustainable way to build resilience, energy and connection to yourself in a potent way that promotes wellness.
