“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 her suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner. Depending upon the nature of the illness, Yoga therapy can not only be preventative or curative, but also serve a means to manage the illness, or facilitate healing in the person at all levels.”
TKV and Kausthub Desikachar (Contemporary definitions of yoga therapy, 2022)
Yoga therapy uses a vast range of evidence based practices including movement, breathwork, self-enquiry, relaxation and meditation. These are used to support and empower the individual in developing skills to aid self-care, well being and healing on many levels, mentally, physically and emotionally, integrating them into daily life. Yoga Therapy sessions will meet the specific individual needs of the client and may differ from week to week and a home practice will be encouraged.
Some of the many conditions yoga therapy is proven to be of help with are: stress related issues, musculoskeletal issues, chronic conditions, immune issues, mental health issues, cancer neurological conditions to name just a few.
