YOGA FOR THERAPY

FOR HEALTH & HEALING
Yoga Therapy, refers to the adaptation and application of yoga techniques and practices to help individuals facing health challenges.
It can be used:
- As a support to alleviate or prevent many physical, chronic, psychological or emotional conditions.
- To compliment both conventional and alternative medicine.
Yoga therapy is taught by yoga teachers with additional training and experience in the therapeutic adaptation and application of yoga.
The Yoga Therapist may include one or more of a range of techniques to help individuals facing health challenges, such as posture work, breathing techniques, relaxation, working with sound, reflection, and/or meditation. A number of sessions are likely to be needed to confirm safe and appropriate practice.

Having now been practicing yoga for almost a year with Gary I would like to say how much it has made a difference to the quality of my mobility and life. Gary has allowed me to develop my practice at my own pace. I have never felt under pressure to take more lessons then what were feasible to me and never felt obligated to continue the practice if it didn’t benefit me. I have particularly enjoyed the person centred approach making me feel he’s only teaching me and no one else. He’s always been available to discuss any problems with my practice and given immediate feedback.Tanvir
My weekly yoga class is my lifeboat. I feel it when I miss one! I had tried some yoga before but only since I started working with Zoë five years ago has it become so vital as a practice for maintaining my everyday balance. As the mother of two small children with a full-time job I have very little time to practice but even with one session a week I feel enormous beneficial effects in body and mind. I have learned from Zoë and Gary not to see yoga as an additional thing ‘to do’ but as a way of being in daily life that brings peace, contentment and joy in the midst of everyday agitation.Maria
I very much appreciate Gary’s detailed, well-timed and gentle instructions. The yoga leaves me feeling refreshed, energised and relaxed. I would highly recommend his classes.Caroline
A quick thought I had the other day: since coming to your classes I have been reminded that a slow, determined and mindful practice is both challenging and rewarding for mind and body. I am always amazed at how hard simply standing or sitting can be when all your awareness is focused on the posture!Suzanne
