What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga Therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress towards improved health and well being through the application of the teachings and practices of yoga.  Yoga Therapy views the person as a whole; an integrated being of mind, body and emotions and addresses all these aspects as appropriate, to promote healing and enhance wellness.  Yoga Therapy is a self-care approach to health, guided and supported by a qualified Yoga Therapist. In his book, 'Yoga As Medicine' the physician Timothy McCall M.D. describes Yoga Therapy as 'simply the most powerful system of overall health and well-being.'  Yoga Therapy combines physical postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama) and mindfulness/meditation practices. 

What Can Yoga Therapy Do For Me?

The benefits of Yoga and Mindfulness are becoming extremely well recognised and have long been used to promote healthy living. But it is only recently that neuroscientific evidence has begun to show exactly how Yoga and Mindfulness can enhance our physical and emotional wellbeing and reduce our stress levels. Yoga Therapy recognises the relationship between stress and disease.  It can be used as a stand alone treatment or alongside counselling, psychotherapy and conventional medicine.  Most talking therapies focus predominantly on the mind to the exclusion of the body.  Yoga Therapy addresses both the physical and psychological aspects of wellness.  It can be helpful to alleviate the symptoms of a wide range of physical and psychological conditions including:

 

  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Pre-Menstrual Tension
  • Digestive Problems
