Supporting you, your health and wellbeing in a holistic way

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. 

People come to yoga for many reasons and you will have your own.  You may want to improve your posture or support joint mobility, to move and stretch your body, to learn to relax and let go of stress and the tensions you carry.  Yoga is holistic and supports general wellbeing and all your body’s systems.  

With its body and mind practices, 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. 

Yoga therapy can be helpful for managing any stress in your life and to support your mental health.  It may also support you if you are recovering from illness or have chronic health conditions.  There is no need for you to have any yoga experience to benefit as everything is tailored to suit you.  Yoga therapy can sit comfortably alongside and does not impact any traditional healthcare you may be receiving.

Breathing is fundamental to life, yet you do not have to think about your breath to breathe.  In fact, you may pay little attention to your breath.  Connecting with your breath and learning some breathing techniques can positively impact your physical wellbeing and bring calm and balance to your mind.  The power of the breath, if understood and harnessed, can relax and soothe your body, bring calm to the over-active mind and encourage a deeper sense of wellbeing.

One final thing, please let go of any preconceptions you may have about the word “yoga”; for instance, that it is only for thin, bendy, young people.  Age is no barrier to finding benefit; nor is perceived lack of flexibility and mobility.  This is yoga for YOU: to meet you where you are and help support your wellbeing in a holistic way.  

The cost is £65 for the initial session (1 hour 15 minutes). 

Follow up sessions (1 hour) are £60 each.  Alternatively, you can pay for three in advance at £165.
