What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy is the application of yoga to help alleviate physical and mental health conditions with a view of bringing ease and comfort to everyday activities. The aim is to work holistically encouraging health and well-being by using specific yoga practices and their broad range of known benefits. Yoga Therapy can improve quality of life, such as helping to overcome panic attacks, depression and anxiety by balancing the nervous system. The sessions involve working collaboratively devising a plan for daily practice consisting of asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), and meditation that is tailored to the individual’s needs. The sessions may also include relaxation techniques, Mindfulness, reflection and the promotion of behavioural changes. Yoga therapy can be practiced on a 1:1 basis or in a small group and is appropriate for a wide range of ages and lifestyles.
Yoga Therapy 8-week course for Stress, Anxiety and Depression
The comprehensive evidence-based program draws on mind-body practices to support mental health and improve emotional regulation by using a combination of Mindfulness Meditation and ancient yoga techniques.
The course has been specifically designed to address physiological and psychological dimensions of depression, stress, and anxiety, empowering you to deeply understand how specific techniques provide immediate and long-term relief.
The combination of this mind-body practice will help regulate mood and emotions, improve self-awareness and alter habitual patterns of thought and behaviour in a therapeutic safe environment.
Client testimonial from the 8-week course on stress, anxiety and depression
Although nervous at first, I feel very glad that I took part in this course. The difference in me between the beginning and now is remarkable, especially with my reaction to emotional feelings. The variety of meditation, asanas, breathing techniques and mindset ensured my interest was kept right through the eight sessions.
