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.

I have been practising yoga with Gary for two years and I have also been on two retreats to Turkey with Gary and Zoë.
I attended Gary’s class on a weekly basis in Luton and always leave feeling relaxed and in good spirits, he is an excellent teacher and I try not miss his classes as I find them invaluable. I would recommend trying Gary or Zoë’s classes as you will not be disappointed.
Having been taught by Zoë and Gary over the last several years I can confidently state the positive effects their teachings have had and continue to have on me.Lynette
I contacted Zoë to start classes when I knew absolutely nothing about yoga. I was looking for some peace of mind in my life. I started with a few individual sessions with Zoë and realised that yoga was indeed offering what I was looking for. It’s far more than ‘stretching’ exercises; the movements combined with controlled breathing are really a preparation for quieting the mind. In quieting the mind I found the break I needed from constant overthinking and anxiety. I still have individual sessions now and again and with Zoë’s help have developed a personal daily practice of yoga. I also go to Zoë’s Monday evening sessions. Monday evenings are like plugging in to a weekly download of light, energy, calm and gentleness.Paula
I have been practicing yoga under Gary’s guidance for around 5 years and I cannot speak more highly of my experience. Prior to attending Gary’s class I naively believed that yoga was for the super flexible whose main aim was to master complex postures. However, thanks to Gary’s teaching my understanding of both yoga practice and theory has greatly improved, as has my overall wellbeing. The emphasis is on the importance of the breath which I have found enlightening and have applied to everyday life. As a result of attending Gary’s classes, I have seen great improvements in myself both physically and mentally. The main benefit of attending this class is the fact we are taught by an inspiring teacher who is clearly passionate about his subject and committed to making yoga accessible and achievable for all.Sam
