 What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga Therapy assists in decreasing the effects of disease and discomfort through accessible movement, breath work and relaxation techniques. It empowers people to manage their own sense of health and wellbeing by giving people the tools to be able to use whenever they need it. Yoga therapy works at every level of our being - physically, emotionally and psychologically.

Yoga therapy acts as a compliment to traditional treatments and should accompany long-standing methods. For example, during or post physical therapy treatment, yoga therapy can introduce a relapse prevention model. 


What kind of conditions can Yoga Therapy help to support and manage?
Research suggests that Yoga therapy can act as a support to help manage conditions including, and not limited to:
  • critical illness - cancer, lung, heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome
  • chronic pain - back, shoulder, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis
  • mental health challenges - depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction
  • neurological conditions - stroke, MS, traumatic brain injury, parkinsons, alzheimer's
  • healthy ageing - osteoporosis, fall prevention 

Benefits of Yoga Therapy?
More people are demanding an holistic whole body approach to medicine and healthcare.
The physical benefits of yoga therapy include: a decrease in pain, increased musculoskeletal strength and flexibility, decreased blood pressure, lowers the heart rate, increases immunity, relaxes the nervous system, improves sleep and more.  Psychologically and emotionally, yoga therapy reduces anxiety, depression, increases mind-body connections, promotes healthy coping strategies, increases self compassion and self-acceptance.
What does a private Yoga Therapy session look like?

People learn to relieve and reverse various health challenges using breath work, gentle adaptive movement and relaxation techniques. Depending on the condition, Claire may ask for a note from your healthcare provider.
Each session is 60 minutes. Claire carries out a clinical intake with an evaluation assessment first, followed by individually designed sessions to meet your needs.
Our work together is a partnership with regular pre and post treatment reviews to find the best techniques that work for you.
Comfortable clothing must be worn.
