How Yoga Therapy can help you improve your health and wellbeing*

Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress towards improved health and wellbeing through the application of the teachings and practices of yoga. 

Yoga therapy offers a practical and balanced way to help manage your health and wellbeing as it encourages awareness of the body and the mind, promotes calm and a mindful approach to life and helps you feel more connected to your inner life.

Whilst yoga therapy can help you at any point in your life, it can be particularly helpful if you’re managing chronic health issues, recovering from illness or living with stress, anxiety and depression.  There’s a list of some of the therapeutic benefits of yoga therapy at the bottom of this page, plus a link to client feedback, so please have a look.

There is no need to have any experience of yoga to benefit.  Your age, flexibility and mobility (or lack of !) will not prevent you from benefiting either.  It is suitable for anyone precisely because it is tailored to suit your individual abilities and requirements. 

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.   The practices may include postures and physical movement, use of the breath, awareness of the body and mind,  relaxation,  visualisation, affirmations and meditation.  

You may not have considered that you are carrying around your life is in your body: the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual impacts of all aspects of your life. Your beliefs and values influence how you think, react and behave. You’ll also have physical, mental and emotional habits and patterns.  Deepening your self-awareness can help you uncover these patterns and, if you feel they are unhelpful, you can then seek to make changes, giving you more choice in how you live your life.
