The Benefits of Yoga Therapy
We often have misalignment and exertion issues with the body, accident-driven injuries, stress-induced diseases, and habits holding us back from living a free and joyous life. What is the solution to all our troubles? Yoga therapy may be just what you need…
What is Yoga Therapy?
Unlike a regular Yoga class, Yoga therapy sessions usually get conducted in a private environment, although sometimes couples or families may go together. The therapy includes a fully customised yoga practice designed according to the needs of an individual. The whole body gets assessed from movement and breath to flexibility and functionality. The therapy also includes health and lifestyle consultation.
The benefits of practising yoga
- The focus on proper breathing techniques facilitates the movement of more energy into the body by full usage of the body’s respiratory structures
- Sustained practice of the key yogic postures builds strength, flexibility and balance, alleviating common issues such as chronic lower back pain qnd arthritis as well as improving heart health
- The practice provides meditation through movement, perfect for those that require a moment of peace but struggle to sit still. The time out of the busy working day aids mental and phsyical rejuvenation through deep physical rest.
- It reduces stress, in turn aiding sleep and driving elevated moods and more energy
