Yoga psychotherapy combines yoga with psychotherapy to help you develop a deeper connection to yourself and reconnect body and mind to release deep emotional and physical tensions.
By combining Western talk psychotherapy (nlp psychotherapy, CBT therapy, self relations therapy) with Eastern tools of yoga, yoga therapy uses the wisdom of the body to heal the mind and the power of the mind to heal the body.
Our yoga therapy consists
of a tailored yoga programme, designed to work therapeutically to restore your health, combined with psychotherapy (and our talking therapy has a very 'somatic' focus).
Each one to one session is like a workout that translates to benefits that clear out trauma and mental tension and make you a more positive person. Yoga psychotherapy uniquely combines the power of the mind with the wisdom of the body. Many of the psychosomatic symptoms of common illness and disease are found in the body, but it is in these very symptoms that the power to heal body and mind lies.
That is why we (usually) start with the body in yoga therapy. Using the body we can access the autonomic nervous system and rebalance the 'system'. Then we use talk therapy to tap into the power of the mind (most the unconscious mind!).
A typical session involves working one to one on the mat with the yoga therapist, involving breath work (breath retraining), and doing a series of specially designed, assisted, restorative postures and talk therapy and self hypnosis techniques.
