What is Yoga Therapy?

Yoga Therapy is a person centred, compassionate based and holistic therapeutic intervention. It has a ‘no one cure fits all’ approach meaning it is designed for your specific health needs. It supports and self-empowers you to ‘unravel’ the causes behind your physical and or psychological health condition that has been causing suffering.
 
It is well recognised in medical science as a valued part of the physical or psychological rehabilitation process due to its ability to relieve stress and tension in the mind and body, which is often the underlying cause of ill health. It is also often used in pre-habilitation, as a complimentary therapy to relieve stress in preparation for medical interventions, such as surgery.
