While yoga can help prevent and treat many health conditions, it can also lead to injuries especially if it is not practiced safely and mindfully. Yoga Therapy adapts the practice of Yoga to the needs of people with specific or persistent health problems not usually addressed in a group class.
Therefore, students whom have health challenges will benefit from therapeutic yoga, taught ‘one’ to ‘one’ or in small groups.
Yoga Therapy can assist in a wide range of conditions and health challenges, including amongst others:
Stress, anxiety and depression;
Back pain, sciatica, spondylitis, osteoporosis, and arthritis;
IBS, constipation, indigestion, ulcers, diabetes and obesity;
Common cold, asthma, sinusitis and hay fever;
Menstrual disorders, urogenital infections and disorders, prostate problems, kidney stones and prolapse;
Hypertension, varicose veins and circulatory disorders;
Parkinson Disease, Multiple sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia
