“Yoga therapy is a self-empowering process, where the care-seeker, with the help of the Yoga therapist, implements a personalised and evolving Yoga practice, that not only addresses the illness in a multi-dimensional manner, but also aims to alleviate her/his/their 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, breath-work, 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 possibly differing from week to week with a suggested home practice.
Some of the many conditions yoga therapy is proven to be of help with are: stress related issues, musculoskeletal issues, chronic conditions, aches and pains, immune issues, mental health issues, cancer, neurological conditions, respiratory disorders, cardiovascular issues to name just a few.
I am currently completing a 580-hour Professional Diploma in Yoga Therapy, with BCYT accreditation, with The Minded Institute. I am looking for 3 volunteers for my case studies so that I can fully qualify. There will be 6 weekly sessions which will be structured to suit the volunteers needs and desires.These sessions will be free of charge. I will be receiving supervision throughout my case studies. If you are interested please do contact me on the website contact form. I look forward to hearing from you.
Following on from these case studies I will then start completing the 815-hour Advanced Diploma in Yoga Therapy with IAYT accreditation. I aim to complete this later in 2023.
