1:1 yoga as therapy sessions; healing for body and mind
Yoga has been used therapeutically for hundreds of years to treat the whole body, physical and psychological. Recent studies are beginning to show the effectiveness of Asana (posture) and Pranayama (breathing) practices in treating a wide range of symptoms. Yoga teaches how to control emotions and alter thought patterns (habits) which can help to transform negative behaviours. An additional benefit is that regular practice of Yoga increases strength and flexibility leading to improvements in physical fitness.
Yoga therapy is not like attending a Yoga class
If you are coming to Yoga with a specific short or long-term condition or injury may wish to consider an initial 1:1 yoga therapy consultation. Yoga therapy is not like attending a class – here your symptoms are the primary focus, and the Yoga is specific to your needs. Yoga therapy seeks support the healing process through improving and/or managing symptoms. A practical programme of Yoga – specific stretches, postures, breath-work, relaxation, yoga nidra and meditation – is suggested.
how it works
Yoga therapy aims to create a programme that will allow long-term management of your symptoms. The process is collaborative, and empowering. During your Yoga therapy session(s) you will learn techniques that are specific to your condition, that can easily be applied in day to day life. This provides a way to manage your symptoms with confidence.
For Yoga to work effectively some commitment is necessary. Yoga is a solution for long-term self management of your condition rather than a quick fix. By taking the time to learn you can then apply what you have learned at home with no ongoing cost. Yoga therapy appointments are 45 minutes long. During the appointment you will learn techniques that are specific to your symptoms. Find out more.

- back pain and stiffness
- weight management
- stress, anxiety and depression
- sleep disturbances
- pre + post surgery strength and mobility

Yoga therapy is not a substitute for medical treatments, or for prescribed medications; Miyoga fully supports the work done by medical professionals, and Yoga therapy is intended to work alongside medical treatments to support the healing process; if you are currently being treated for a medical condition you should always seek the advice of your GP or Surgeon prior to commencing Yoga therapy sessions.
