I currently offer in person appointments in Acle, Norwich and the wider Norfolk area as well as online.

What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga therapy is the compassionate application of yoga practices to empower a person towards health and wellbeing.

 

In yoga therapy we look at the person not the condition, considering all aspect of the individual to help bring them back to harmony. It is a space to ‘unravel’ the causes behind physical or mental ill health and in doing so ease suffering.

 

Yoga therapy is well recognised in medical science as a valued part of physical or psychological rehabilitation due to it’s ability to relieve stress and tension in the mind and body, which is often the underlying cause of ill health. There is a large and ever growing body of scientific research to support the efficacy of yoga therapy in helping people either as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with other medical interventions.

What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga therapy is a unique approach to health that combines the ancient practices and wisdom of yoga with a modern scientific understanding of the body and mind. This can be applied to a wide range of health conditions to help promote healing and ease suffering.

 

Yoga therapy is a compassionate and holistic process in which each person is treated as an individual and supported to take an active role in their healing. Your unique situation, lifestyle, and history are taken into consideration to create a personalised plan that addresses both your physical and emotional needs. Yoga Therapy can be incredibly beneficial for those seeking relief from illness or injury, as well as those looking to take a more proactive approach to their health and well-being.

 

A yoga therapist differs from a yoga teacher in that they have received extensive training in a range of different health conditions and have an in-depth understanding of the body and mind. This means that they are able to skilfully apply the principles of yoga to help people improve their physical and mental health.

 

During a yoga therapy session you are given space and time to explore different practices to ensure you feel safe and confident to continue to use them at home. The therapeutic nature of this process aims to help you gain better understanding of yourself and your situation. Through this process you can gain insights that can help you to make lasting changes to improve your quality of life and build healthier habits.

 

There is an ever growing body of scientific research to support the efficacy of yoga therapy as
either an adjunctive or stand alone treatment in a variety of different conditions. Some areas of health that yoga therapy can be applied to include:

 

chronic pain

heart and respiratory conditions

muscle, joint and bone health

digestive, weight and hormonal issues

brain and nervous system health

immune health

mental health and emotional well being

women’s and men’s health issues and more – please enquire.
