Why Yoga therapy?
Yoga therapy is a client-centred approach to empowering individuals to move towards greater health, well-being and quality of life through the application of the practices of yoga.
In yoga therapy we use physical practices, breathing exercises, meditation, guided visualisations and talking therapies to support you on a path of holistic healing. Initial sessions begin with an interview to assess where you are, and what your goals for therapy are. Through assessments of the way you stand and move and breathe, we arrive collaboratively at the best initial practice for you. You will be guided in this practice, and end with a tailored restorative practice.
Optimal results can be achieved if a client can continue the practice at home, so we find ways to facilitate this, either by creating recordings on the client’s phone or other device so they can be listened to independently, or by scribing the practices in a way that the client can easily follow them at home. Initial appointments are 90 minutes, and followups are 60-90 minutes.
I have had some wonderful results working with clients with conditions including hypermobility, asthma, low back pain, Crohns disease and ankylosing spondylitis. All of these clients worked with me over the course of at least five sessions, and we have had results such as:
decreasing experience of pain relating from hypermobility and ankylosing spondylitis;
increasing lung capacity measured with a peak flow meter for asthma;
reducing experience of stress levels that can result in Crohns disease flare-ups;
increasingly sleep quality and overall feeling of well-being in all clients.
I have found that the best healing results can be achieved through a minimum of three therapy sessions and I have a special package deal to support this. The exchange for therapy is:
£90 for the first appointment
£60 for 2nd follow-up appointment
£30 for 3rd follow-up appointment
£180 for 3 appointments booked at the same time
Therapy sessions are held at my home in Sidcup, south-east London (address given on booking).
