Yoga Therapy

We offer Yoga Therapy which includes not only the physical practice of yoga but also breathing techniques and mediation. 

This is about optimising the function of every system in our body from the muscles to digestion, circulation, and immunity. This in turn can calm and strengthen the nervous system and therefore the mind.

These days yoga therapy has become so popular, that many doctors are now supporting it. Various medical journals reveal research as to yoga’s multi-tiered benefits. Likewise those in the field of mental health often recommend yoga to clients or may even integrate aspects into their work.

The NHS is now also becoming increasingly aware of the potential benefits of yoga therapy to their staff and patients alike and they recommend the British Council of Yoga Therapists in the Complementary and Alternative Therapies element of their service.

Yoga therapy aligns the unique and precise health needs of the client with yoga practices which the yoga tradition and also medical science find to have particular curative effects. For example, with lower back pain, there are very specific yoga positions and postures for strengthening and supporting the back and even soothing the symptoms of a herniated disc. Likewise, with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), there are gentle, specialised ways of regulating the nervous system and fostering the return of an awareness of the body. In Autism Spectrum Disorders, specific yoga postures can be used to reduce heightened sensory arousal and promote self emotional regulation. 
Yoga therapy sessions are client-led, client-focused, and compassion-focused. Sessions may include breathing techniques, postures, meditation, relaxation techniques, or the promotion of behavioural changes. The difference of Yoga Therapy is the holistic approach emphasis on strengthening you through your body and mind, for example creating a more resilient nervous system, to managing your anxiety through proven breathing techniques. Yoga Therapy is accessible to everybody regardless of physical abilities.
