Whilst yoga classes are beneficial, yoga therapy recognises the need for a personalised approach when it comes to treating health ailments and physical and emotional conditions. Each body type and personal circumstance can vary greatly and therefore requires a unique approach when identifying goals for health & well being improvement.

Yoga therapy considers lifestyle and dietary choices and the individual’s natural tendencies. A yoga therapist can also offer encouragement to connect to deeper sources of inspiration such as hobbies and wisdom with an aim to achieving a holistic outcome of health and well being. A personal practice may be prescribed to help remedy physical, psychological and emotional imbalance.
