Find balance and recover well-being to pursue the activities and life style you desire
In a typical Yoga Class, led by qualified teachers who instruct and guide you through yoga poses, although assistance is provided, the focus is to move through through the poses, stretching and strengthening, and to feel relaxed and refreshed from the practice.
If you are looking for yoga designed specifically to meet your needs, then Yoga Therapy is recommended. You may feel uncomfortable or at a loss as a beginner in a large class; or maybe you are concerned about being able to physically do the poses or getting hurt. Experienced yogis may simply want to go deeper or have a more hands on approach to proper alignment.
A qualified practitioner has completed 350 or more hours training in Yoga Therapy,or the equivalent, in addition to a yoga teacher training of 200 or more hours.
