Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy can effectively and gently improve and manage a wide range of health concerns, such as:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Back pain
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Cardio-vascular problems
  • IBS
  • Migraines
  • Menopausal and other hormonal symptoms
  • Chronic or non-specific pain
  • ME or chronic tiredness
  • A nagging sense of ill-health or discontent

.

Whatever is causing you concern can be raised and addressed with care in yoga therapy. We work one-to-one to investigate the symptoms you are experiencing, understand the causes, and put together a realistic and gentle plan for your healing.

The plan will be a combination unique to you that combines Mindfulness, Yoga and Ayurveda. As an integrated yoga therapist, I see you as an individual whose health concerns may look the same as someone else but the reasons they’ve come about will be unique to you. It will be you as an individual that we’re treating.

Each of these three healing practices are powerful in their own right. When put together in the combination that best suits you and your circumstances, they can be especially potent.

What happens in a yoga therapy session?

In the first session, we will

  • Discuss whatever symptoms are troubling you now
  • Review your medical history
  • Understand your goals for treatment in the immediate term and over a longer period
  • Agree a plan of action that suits your goals and your lifestyle to be put into effect straight away

By approaching the problem with gentleness, skill and compassion, improvements in many conditions are possible. These changes will have a positive impact on you and the people around you.

In the follow-up sessions, we will review progress and adapt your plan, taking into account your original goals and any changes to them. It’s not unusual for ideas about what’s achievable to expand as confidence in yoga therapy develops with your first-hand experience.

Options

The first session will be for 1.5 hours; the others will be one hour each.

At the end of the first session I will advise you on the number of further sessions I recommend are needed to reach your goals, taking into account your symptoms, the amount of time you can give between sessions to follow the treatment plan, and the pace at which you would like to work.  As a general guide, any treatment that includes a mindfulness component would usually be applied over 8 sessions. Alternatively, you can choose in advance the number of sessions you would like to have. Sessions are usually weekly and agreed in advance.

5 sessions £250
8 sessions £380
12 sessions £560

Accreditation

I am registered as a yoga therapist with the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council).

This is a voluntary register accredited by the NHS. Yoga therapists are trained yoga teachers who have additional training and experience in the therapeutic adaptation and application of yoga. My practice integrates yoga with mindfulness and Ayurveda, allowing for holistic guidance for your physical, emotional and worldly well-being.




Questions?

Yoga therapy is a fairly new discipline to the UK, although its constituents of yoga, mindfulness and Ayurveda are as old as the hills. You probably have a number of questions about yoga therapy and how it can help you. I hope I’ve answered at least some of them here, but if there’s something you’d like to discuss, please just ask.
