Frequently asked questions

I don’t have a serious illness - can I still benefit from yoga therapy?

Yes! Yoga therapy can be beneficial for everyone, including those who are going through challenging life transitions, losses and transformations, or people who would just really like to have a yoga practice that is tailored to them.

When should I see results?

Usually, the results are seen in three to five sessions, but this very much depends on the individual.

Can I go to a public yoga class and do yoga therapy at the same time?

Yes, the public yoga classes and yoga therapy serve different functions.

What is yoga therapy and how is it different to yoga class or private yoga class?

To qualify as a yoga therapist requires more hours of intensive study into yoga - its philosophy, practice and the scientific and academic studies that have been proven to be beneficial for different conditions. Yoga therapists are trained in serving the individual needs of people with specific conditions, and the setting of yoga therapy is more intimate and personalised. The yoga therapist uses the tools of yoga (asana, breathwork, intention, visualisation and meditation) to create a practice that is specific to your individual needs. In yoga therapy, your specific goals and priorities are paramount to, and are integrated into your practice.

How long do the yoga therapy sessions take?

The initial session takes 1.5 to 2 hours and follow-up sessions take 1 to 1.5 hours.

What level of yoga do you have to have to become a client?

Any level. Yoga therapy works for people that are completely new to the practice and people who have been practicing for many years. Everyone can benefit.

I’ve been advised not to practice yoga due to my condition, would yoga therapy be suitable?

Some people cannot attend public yoga classes for a variety of different reasons. Then it is a good idea to come to yoga therapy. Yoga therapy caters for everyone’s needs. Over time, as you change and begin to heal, you may feel ready to join a public class and transition over. This is common.
