How Yoga Therapy can help you 

Yoga therapy is the use of yoga to help individuals improve their overall wellbeing.  We are all different, reflected in our own health and what we may need to bring us to wellbeing, balance and harmony.  Yoga therapy is holistic treating you as the whole person you already are, approaching your body and mind as a complex whole rather than treating individual symptoms.  Yoga therapy can help with a wide range of physical, mental and emotional issues and can be used alongside any conventional treatment prescribed by a doctor.  You need no experience of yoga to benefit.

Our lives are in our bodies and minds.   We carry the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual impact of all aspects of our lives around with us.  Our beliefs and values influence how we think, react and behave and, during our life, we develop our own physical, mental and emotional habits and patterns, which impact us in different ways. These may serve us well or create ongoing problems. Deepening our self-awareness can help us uncover these patterns and, if we feel they are unhelpful, we can then seek to make changes, giving us more choice in how we live our lives.

Yoga therapy offers a practical and balanced way to help manage our health and wellbeing, because yoga encourages awareness of both the body and the mind, promoting calm and relaxation and helping us feel more connected to our inner being.

Yoga therapy can help us at any point in our lives, but can be particularly helpful when if we’re stressed, when we have health issues or are recovering from illness. Yoga therapy may help manage a wide range of health issues and, as it seeks to address patterns of thinking, it can help us manage stress, anxiety and depression.

What to expect at a Yoga Therapy session

Yoga therapy, conducted on a one-to-one basis, uses yoga in ways tailored to your own requirements to enhance your wellbeing through a more mindful approach to life.  

Yoga therapy involves some talking and some gentle yoga, all conducted in a caring and confidential way to suit your own needs.  Each session is an hour, although the first one is usually a little longer, and you will need to wear some comfortable clothing.  

There is no requirement for you to have any experience of yoga to benefit and, whatever your age, yoga therapy can offer you a more mindful and balanced way of life.   Yoga therapy can be for everyone as it offers ways tailored for you to work with your body and mind holistically to improve your health and wellbeing.
