What is Yoga Therapy and who is it for?

According to one of the great masters of Yoga Therapy from the 1900s, TVK Desikachar.

“Yoga Therapy is a self-empowering process, where the care-seeker, with the help of the Yoga Therapist, implements a personalized and evolving Yoga practice, that not only addresses the illness in a multi-dimensional manner, but also aims to alleviate his/her suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner. Depending upon the nature of the illness, Yoga Therapy can not only be preventive or curative, but also serve as a means to manage the illness, or facilitate healing in the person at all levels.”

One to one sessions may include breathing techniques, postures, meditation, relaxation, visualisation or the promotion of behavioural changes. For example, with depression and anxiety, there are gentle, specialised ways of regulating the nervous system. A restorative practice including visualisation and pranayama can activate the relaxed response, calm the body and mind, increase energy and bring new perspectives.

Anyone can do Yoga and it’s safe for all health conditions.

What to expect in a session?

At our first meeting we will discuss and explore your specific needs. We’ll then work together towards your chosen goals and use a variety of Yoga practices to help you improve your health and wellbeing. It’s likely that you will need a minimum of six sessions to begin with. A programme will be created based on information gathered and a number of traditional Therapy models will be used to diagnose your health from a physical, energy, mind and spiritual perspective. It’s important that you feel comfortable with the practice and that it’s achievable for you to do. Follow up sessions will involve reviewing practice, understanding what’s working and not working for you. Insights and experiences can be shared enabling practice to be tailored, creating a new level of healing. Yoga practices can be used alongside other forms of treatment.
