Yoga Therapy


Yoga Therapy
The aim of yoga therapy is to restore balance, strength and vitality at a physical, mental and emotional level.
When our balance is disturbed by illness yoga can help restore it, or to manage the illness.
A one-to-one consultation will review the condition and associated lifestyle factors. Sessions may incorporate movement, breathing, mindful awareness, relaxation, diet and lifestyle. A short simple programme is provided so that clients can begin to practise and benefit straight away.

The NHS directory on complementary practitioners states:
“Research trials show that yoga therapy practices are among the most effective known methods for managing the psychosomatic, stress-related conditions, which are so common today. This is because they bridge the gap between body and mind, ranging across the whole spectrum from physical to mental. Conditions treated include asthma and COPD, hypertension and heart conditions, back pain, arthritis, hyperacidity, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, migraine and headaches, multiple sclerosis, and cancer (coping with chemotherapy and radiotherapy, rehabilitation from surgery, and reducing anxiety)”.
