Yoga can be practiced by everyone. Yoga poses can be adapted to be practiced whilst sitting in a chair, standing, or lying on the ground. Since each body is unique, and every individual’s practice is different, essentially all yoga is adaptive to some extent.
Yoga therapy is a type of therapy that uses yoga postures, breathing exercises, meditation, relaxation and guided imagery to improve mental and physical health. The holistic focus of yoga therapy encourages the integration of mind, body, and spirit.
Yoga therapy is accessible to everyone. The poses are coupled with breathing awareness and props such as: blankets, bolsters, chair, yoga straps, and blocks, to meet the unique needs of individuals with different abilities. At the end of a session you will go home with a yoga sequence especially designed for you and your needs at a given moment.
My aim is to empower you to practice yoga at home and to have the tools you need to help you with health and life balance issues.
During the last 10 years, I developed hands-on knowledge of how to adapt yoga techniques to the most vulnerable.
Today the scope of my work is:
- To bring Yoga in the community.
- To offer Yoga Therapy to people with a wide range of conditions (neurological, immune, respiratory and cardio-vascular conditions, cancers and post treatment, diagnosed mental health issues, musculo-skeletal issues).
- To work with people with special needs.
- Educate movement teachers to anatomy, to allow them to refine their skills.
