Yoga Therapy & Ayurveda take a personal approach with a focus on re-establishing the balance necessary for health and wellbeing.

This complete healthcare system works on all levels and benefits each individual physically, mentally and emotionally.

Each person is assessed: we look at diet, lifestyle, relationships, health conditions and symptoms. The pulse is read to understand more about individual constitutions, and each session uses talking therapy in line with Yoga Psychology. The practice may include physical postures, movement, breathwork and meditation. It will be specific to the individual and support their necessary goal.

As a Yoga Therapist, I help people to notice their patterns of behaviour, initially through self study: the aim is for people to discover their own success and to improve quality of life.

The most common reasons why people come to see me are:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Sleep problems
  • Depression
  • Eating Disorders
  • Anger management
  • Addiction
  • Asthma
  • Musculoskeletal Problems
  • Back Pain
  • To increase mobility &/or strength
  • Digestive problems
  • Menopause
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Cancer
  • Autoimmune Disease

“Yoga therapy is a self-empowering process, where the care-seeker, guided by 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 his/her suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner. Depending upon the nature of the illness, Yoga therapy can be preventative or curative and serve as a means to manage illness or facilitate healing in each person and at all levels.”
