 Yoga is a holistic healing system for creating harmony and balance on all levels: body, mind, emotions and spirit. Yoga comprises a wide range of mind / body practices, ranging from postural and breathing exercises to deep relaxation, emotion culturing and meditation. Yoga therapy tailors these to the health needs of the individual.  Yoga therapy is also suitable for children with special needs ( see below). 

In addition to promoting all-round positive health, yoga can act as a therapy for specific health problems such as:  

  • asthma
  • cancer
  • back pain
  • insomnia
  • depression
  • stress
  • digestive conditions e.g irritable bowel syndrome, crohn's disease
  • hypertension and heart conditions
  • chronic fatigue syndrome ( ME/CFS )
  • multiple sclerosis, parkinson's disease
  • diabetes


Yoga therapy can help people to manage their health problems more effectively, alongside prescribed medical treatments. It is particularly appropriate for conditions which persist despite conventional medical treatment. Yoga therapy seeks to complement, rather than replace, modern medicine.

Yoga therapy includes:

Physical postures which strengthen and tone the joints, muscles and ligaments, clear toxins, increase energy levels, and enhance the functioning of our internal organs and
Breathing exercises which improve respiration, increase energy, release tension, and restore balance and calm.
helps to develop mental clarity and steadiness, and relaxation calms the nervous system and reduces stress and anxiety.

A programme will be given to one to one clients for home practice.
Yoga therapy can be offered on a one to one basis or small specialised classes 


Yoga therapy for children with special needs includes gentle yoga postures, breathing exercises and relaxation and it complements modern medical treatments such as physiotherapy, speech and language therapy.  Yoga encourages the natural development of children to help them to achieve their maximum potential.
