Yoga Therapy is an ancient complementary therapy now recognised by the British Psychological Society. Yoga therapy adapts the tools of yoga (postures, breath, mantra, meditation, visualisation, relaxation practices) to help with a wide range of different conditions. Through a series of sessions, I build a customised practice just for the client, which helps to manage their condition. Examples of conditions: anxiety, depression, eating disorders, abandonment, emotional trauma and many others.
