What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga Therapy uses a range of yoga techniques to assist in the management of health issues. It is about working with the WHOLE person, rather than simply treating the condition. 
Yoga techniques that may be used include asanas (postures), pranayama (breath work), relaxation, meditation, dietary advice, lifestyle counselling and self-development guidance.

What to expect in a Yoga Therapy session?

The initial consultation will be focused on discussing you, the health issue / issues and how the health issue affects you. If appropriate, you will be guided through yoga techniques that will assist you in managing your health issue. Following sessions will provide you with more detailed yoga techniques that are designed specifically for you and your health issue.

Who is a Yoga Therapist?

A yoga therapist is an experienced yoga teacher who has completed specialized training in Yoga Therapy. A Yoga Therapist should have qualifications in Yoga Therapy and be a member of  the Australian Association of Yoga Therapists and/or International Association of Yoga Therapists. A Yoga Teacher is not a Yoga Therapist unless they have undergone specialist training in Yoga Therapy. If you are not sure, simply ask what qualifications the Yoga Therapist has, and what professional associations they belong to.  A qualified Yoga Therapist will be more than happy to answer these questions.
