YOGA FOR THERAPY
Yoga according to the possibilities, interests and well-being of each person
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.

Gary is a wonderful teacher. He is very professional, calm and caring. I am 76 and have been attending Gary’s yoga classes for a number of years. The class is very friendly and consists of all ages and everyone feels confident knowing that they are encouraged to work within their capabilities, with slight variations when necessary.Doreen
I have studied with Zoë and Gary for the last 5 years and throughout that time I have found I have developed a personal yoga practice that has helped me in so many ways. I love the classes where I get to work on my postures and breath work under the very skilled tutoring of Zoë – but the real benefit to me is the one to one classes I have where Zoë will devise a personal practice I do every day. In essence I could not consider a life without yoga – and that is down to teachers that we are so lucky to have in Leicester.Alison
Between them they have a wealth of knowledge and offer authentic teachings whilst also offering new ways to think about the way we practice. They are welcoming, fun and make yoga accessible. I highly recommend working with them both as individual teachers and in workshop or group classes.Helen
When I first found Gary’s class several years ago, I felt that it was the class I had been searching for but never found and I have stayed with him ever since. This is not just an exercise class. Gary brings to the class a spiritual quality that I love and he is a wealth of information about yoga itself. In the past I have found other yoga classes a bit slow and not very demanding, but in Gary’s class I am physically challenged yet mentally calmed. He and Zoë offer workshops sometimes, they are well worth going to. In short I would recommend Gary and Zoë’s classes to anyone, you will be welcomed and looked after.Lesley
