What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy is a one to one yoga lesson that uses postures, breath awareness, relaxation and meditation to help maintain or regain optimal health for the individual.
Yoga therapy can work alongside conventional medical treatment to help treat a wide variety of complaints from back pain to stress and depression, and can help the individual to begin to understand the root cause of their problem.
Yoga Therapy acknowledges the connection between the body, emotions and the mind, and can help bring balance on all these levels.
It is a non evasive and gentle way to restore health with minimal or no negative side effects.
What does it entail?
A typical yoga therapy session involves an initial client consultation, whereby the therapist and client discuss the client’s reason for coming to yoga therapy. The therapist will evaluate the clients’s physical and mental health, and devise a routine that helps to deal with the issues of the client. This routine is then practised by the client and helps promote natural self healing of the body whilst aiming to allow the mind to experience peace.
Yoga therapy is an holistic healing approach that recognises all aspects of a person’s being, from the physical and mental to the spiritual. This allows the client to begin to feel a unification of mind, body and spirit.
