Yoga Therapy

Why yoga therapy

Yoga therapy can be suitable when there are things going on in your body that need more attention and adaption than what is available in a regular (private) yoga session.

A certified yoga therapist has 800-hours (or more) of additional (biomedical and yoga) training making sure that you are taken care of in a professional and safe manner. The skills of a yoga therapist are specific to health conditions such as cardiovascular, respiratory and digestive issues, musculoskeletal injuries and immune system imbalances, and many more.

In yoga therapy we treat the whole person – not the disease. It is a whole-body approach to bring the body-system(s) back into homeostasis (balance), so that the various mechanisms of the body can gradually restore and function more optimal.

What is Yoga Therapy 

“Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the teachings and practices of yoga.”

International Association of Yoga Therapists

”Although all yoga is potentially therapeutic and healing, yoga therapy is the specific application of yogic tools—postures/exercises, breathwork, meditation techniques, and more—to address an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional needs.”

Often, yoga therapy is not a quick fix, but rather as stated above, a process. Most likely it has taken you a bit of time to get ’where you are’ and chances are it will take us a bit of time to ’get you back on track’. I can almost guarantee though that you will start to notice improvements quickly.  

It all depends on what you need to increase your health and well-being.

The Yoga Therapy Program:

  • First intake session

Each session typically involves yoga postures, breathing techniques and relaxation techniques to target the ‘whole of you’, not just the part/area that is not functioning optimally.

* 65 €/session. The prices will be kept ‘below’ the average price for yoga therapy sessions for the entire 2022 as I will still be in training for part of the year. Prices will be adjusted to ‘normal’ rates from 2023. For certain health conditions/issues you might ‘fit’ to become a case study which is part of the requirements for my training, which is prices entirely different.

How many sessions are required:
No two clients are the same, and saying what is a ’normal amount of sessions’ is a rather difficult, if not an impossible task. Yoga therapy is a process. A process can be defined as ”a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end”.

Those actions or steps are not just the actual yoga therapy sessions, but also the practices you decide to do on your own, at home, in between our sessions. Often 2-4 months will provide you with enough tools to feel empowered to continue working on your own. The decision will always be yours, if you want to continue, or if/when you want to stop. 

Initially we probably meet once/week. After some time perhaps every second week or once a month. Depending on your preferences and needs.

Combine with other treatments:
You are naturally free to continue with other forms of treatment and, indeed, yoga therapy can be used alongside other modalities very easily.
