WHAT IS YOGA THERAPY
Yoga therapy is a movement-based approach, where we work mainly with the physical body, using movement, breathing and relaxation techniques in order to restore the balance (homeostasis) in the ‘body systems’.
In short, it’s a way to bring more health & wellbeing into your life, regardless of your current health situation. It’s a way to take (back) ownership of your health.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOGA THERAPY
Working together you will learn, in a clear and easy way, about the ‘body systems’ and how it is all so cleverly connected, and what you can do in your everyday life to support your body & mind towards more health.
You learn to use tools & techniques to self-regulate as needed in the ‘ups & downs’ of life. The practices done during the sessions become much more powerful and effective when they become part of your daily life.
My intention is that you gain knowledge from me to feel confident & skilled enough to continue to practice on your own, using the tools you’ve learnt.
TAILORED TO YOU
No two individuals are the same, which is why each session is tailored to suit your needs. Also, each session will differ depending on your current situation on the day of our session.
We work online through Zoom and/or in-person in my home-based studio on Pannekoekstraat, city centre of Rotterdam.
LET’S GET STARTED
Reach out to book a complimentary 20-minutes online consultation/intake to make sure yoga therapy, and working together with me, is a good match for you. If we decide to work together we will make sure to book our first session, and make a plan how to put you (back) in control of your health & wellbeing.
FEEDBACK FROM CLIENTS
“Before we started the sessions I really didn’t have that many expectations. After reading the information on your website yoga therapy seemed like one of a few good options to try in order to heal a bit more. And luckily it was! The custom-made sessions were very helpful as I learned to work with limitations regarding my condition and worked on gradually building muscle/strength. I would say a 10!” -J.T
“Yoga therapy for me, was a very healing experience. And has given me the tools to get to know myself and my body a little bit better. As a result, I feel a lot better, and my back complaints and IBS are much more manageable.” -C.H
“Didn’t know what to expect, but I feel its a worthy addition to the purely medical treatment. This is because I felt taken seriously, and it gave me much more awareness of how systems in the body are (inter)connected and how to work on relaxing basically. Sounds simple but it’s not, also something I took away from the therapy. To add, thank you for going ‘the extra mile’ when sending over recommendations or podcasts that you thought relevant, much appreciated.” -L.B
“Camilla has a lot of knowledge about the human body and always knows how to do a specific movement in a different way in case you cannot do it in one way. She makes you see assumptions or expectations you might have concerning your own body and how your could treat it differently.” -A.B
