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.
