Yoga for Therapy

Therapeutic Yoga for All Types of Health Conditions

One to One Yoga for Therapy

Yoga can be taught therapeutically to recover from an injury or illness, or to support you living with a health condition. Depending on the nature of the illness, yoga therapy can be used to prevent, cure or manage conditions.

I have experience of teaching students with a variety of health conditions from back pain to depression.

Physical Recovery

Your yoga practice can be designed for therapeutic benefits, it would be gentle to begin with, to help you stabilise your condition. As you become more stable, then the practice will develop to help strengthen your body and mind to try to avoid the situation occurring again. For instance if you suffer with back pain, through regular yoga practice I’d hope to see a reduction in the number of flair-ups and a decrease in the intensity and duration of the pain if it does reoccur.

In yoga it is believed that nothing is destroyed but through practice you can create an environment where unhelpful conditions become dormant.

Support for Long Term Conditions

Yoga for therapy can be used as a support to alleviate or prevent many physical, psychological or emotional conditions such as:

  • Managing health conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis.
  • Care for disorders such as asthma, digestive disorders
  • For depression, insomnia
  • For managing anxiety

When looking at yoga to support you I would take care to ensure the level and length of practice is appropriate for you. As your experience develops, the practice will help to provide solid support in order to manage everyday life.

Emotional Benefits

Yoga doesn’t just help with physical conditions such as joint injuries but also helps recovery on an emotional and energetic level. Some of my students have noticed the following emotional changes from regular yoga practice.

  • Feeling mentally more stable and able to cope with life
  • Enhanced energy levels
  • Improvements in their general well-being

I suffer with lower back pain due to degenerative discs. Going to one to one yoga lessons has helped me greatly. Beth has designed a programme for my specific needs which she guides me through to make sure I am getting the full benefit from each pose. By practicing on a regular basis I have been able to increase the strength in my back and increase my well-being due to not being in so much pain.
