What is Yoga Therapy?
New scientific studies illustrate how yoga not only brings a general sense of well-being but can also help with many illnesses as well as injuries. Yoga therapy offers yoga designed to meet your individual needs. In our sessions together, I take the time to understand your unique health concerns and then work with you to design a personalised yoga routine.

Why Choose Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy is evidence-based techniques of ancient tools adapted to a modern lifestyle. These tools are designed to help you resolve pain and tension so that you can navigate through life with more ease. Unlike a group yoga class, every Yoga Therapy session is tailored to your needs and goals to ensure effective results. Yoga therapy is a complementary therapy that can work in conjunction with physio, psychotherapy and other medical treatments you're already receiving.
My specialities include:
Anxiety and Stress
Fatigue and depletion
Lower and upper back pain
Muscle stiffness and weakness
Injuries from other forms of yoga, dance, or movement practices

As a yoga therapist – I take your individual mental and physical constitution into account as we design a healing practice for you.
The tools of yoga we use may include:
Meditations and visualisations
Counseling / listening
Lifestyle changes / diet
As a yoga therapist, I see you as a whole being. You might come to me with any range of issues (i.e. chronic back pain, neck stiffness, anxiety, stress, cancer, trauma, depression, asthma...) and I understand that everything is interconnected. For example, back pain may make you feel irritable, effect your sleep and create shallow breathing. We work together to address the issues at hand and any underlying, root causes.
During our sessions, we discuss thought patterns and behaviours and any desired change. We work as a team to address every part of you - your body, your mind and your spirit. You are the expert on you and it is my job to restore your agency. I am here to assist you in the process of healing yourself.
Often when you work with a doctor, a physiotherapist, a psychologist, these people are focusing on one part of who you are. The doctor and physio can do wonders for your physical body, the psychologist can greatly help you understand your own mind. As a yoga therapist, I see that the mind, body and soul are intimately connected. Our goal together is to alleviate your suffering and bring you into a place of healing and peace. I do hope we find an opportunity to meet.
