Yoga therapy is the adaptation of yoga practices for people with a range of health challenges. Our yoga therapists prescribe specific regimens of postures, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques to suit individual needs.

Yoga Therapy is a holistic health system that blends the ancient teachings of yoga with the latest advances in mind-body medicine. This synthesis of yoga postures, deep breathing, relaxation, meditation, guided imagery and releasing techniques, provides a natural antidote to the stress of contemporary living and promotes overall health.

Restorative yoga (supported postures), gentle yoga, breath-work, hands-on healing, and guided meditation techniques all reduce stress and bring the body back into balance. Therapeutic Yoga is a deeply meditative experience – it provides the opportunity to step away from the busyness of the outside world and access the deeper wisdom and healing that resides within us.
