Yoga Therapy Classes

"Good alignment = Good therapy"

Yoga Therapy sessions are offered, which is a practice of Yoga to clear discomfort or pain in the body. This includes a full body assessment, focusing on correct body alignment and the biomechanic condition, and includes the teaching of and performance of asanas (postures) in modified and intelligent ways when one has injuries, pain or physical limitations and/or using the Yoga practice to prepare for or rehabilitate from surgery. 

People often assume Yoga Therapy involves restorative practices, but in fact it can be very active, strengthening, and dynamic. Practicing Yoga therapeutically is to become familiar with anatomy and alignment. Each sequence of Yoga postures given to the practitioner is tailored to them and given after an interview, body assessment and body alignment. Sequences can and will change over time depending on the clients' specific needs. Sessions take from one hour upwards. The first introduction session requires one hour thirty minutes to complete.

Yoga Therapy classes will not necessarily have to go on over a long period of time; you will be taught theory and postures necessary for your alignment healing and then can take these away. If you suffer with other pain or tension in other areas of the body in the future you can come back for further Yoga Therapy.
