johngrimesyoga. What is yoga therapy?⁠
⁠
Yoga therapy is the personalised application

What is yoga therapy?⁠ ⁠ Yoga therapy is the personalised application of yoga techniques to fit the needs and interests of the individual.⁠ ⁠ It is an integrated mind-body approach for restoring balance and functioning to the physical (musculoskeletal), physiological (digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine, and immune), and mental/emotional systems.⁠ ⁠ Yoga therapy uses the tools that are found in many yoga classes — postures, breath work, meditation, awareness of the body and/or mind, relaxation — and adapts them to suit the needs and ability of the individual.⁠ ⁠ Its aim is to promote health in its holistic sense (health of the mind, body and emotions).⁠ ⁠ Get in touch to book your 1:1 consultation⁠ ⁠ #berko #berkhamstedyoga #berkhamsted #yogatherapy #backpain #yogaquotes⁠

johngrimesyoga. What's a TWIST in yoga?⁠
⁠
Twisting poses rotate the spine and stretch

What's a TWIST in yoga?⁠ ⁠ Twisting poses rotate the spine and stretch out the muscles of the back. Doing this helps to retain range of motion in the spine, keeping it healthy. As well as keeping the spine mobile, twists are believed to aid digestion. Twists create movement in the internal organs and some experts believe this helps our food get moved along.⁠ ⁠ Twists are also viewed as detoxifying. This could be because the movement stimulates our organs (including those that eliminate waste). Stimulating our organs in this way could help to aid eliminations of waste and support the body's natural detoxification process.⁠ ⁠ As twisting poses involve the spine it is important to ensure you are doing them correctly to avoid injury. Be sure to seek advice from a yoga teacher before trying a pose at home. Get in touch if you'd like to discuss a yoga therapy program to suit your body.⁠ ⁠ #berko #berkhamstedyoga #berkhamsted #yogatherapy #backpain #yogaquotes⁠

YOGA THERAPY⁠ ⁠ Using this discipline in a therapeutic setting is different than most of the classes you see advertised. Yoga therapy is a more tailored practice that looks to help those with health/mobility problems or those recovering from injury.⁠ ⁠ While general yoga is preventative in nature (and may help resolve mild ailments) it may not be suitable for those with specific mobility/health concerns. In contrast, yoga therapy looks to encourage healing of such ailments with a personalised treatment plan.⁠ ⁠ Some concerns that can be addressed include:⁠ ⁠ arthritis⁠ back pain⁠ depression⁠ painful joints⁠ certain musculoskeletal issues⁠ stress⁠ headaches⁠ ⁠ As with all complementary therapies, yoga therapy is designed to be used alongside conventional treatment to help the body heal more effectively. In some cases, the therapy will not be able to 'cure' an ailment, but it may help you to better manage your symptoms and lower any associated stress.⁠ ⁠ #berko #berkhamstedyoga #berkhamsted #yogatherapy #backpain #yogaquotes⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Yoga therapy is about empowering

Health of body, mind and emotions ⁠ ⁠ Yoga therapy is about empowering you to develop your health using an individual and personalised approach. Each person is unique as are circumstances, needs and abilities. Even two people with the same health condition will have different therapeutic Yoga practices because of the differences between individuals. My approach is always to work with you as an individual and use yoga tools that work with the body, mind and emotions. You might be thinking about working with one specific factor or more than one factor or looking for additional support during other medical treatment. ⁠ ⁠ Get in touch to book your first 1:1⁠ ⁠ #berko #berkhamstedyoga #berkhamsted #yogatherapy #backpain #yogaquotes⁠ ⁠ ⁠

⁠
When clients see

Why come to yoga therapy rather than a yoga class?⁠ ⁠ When clients seek out a yoga therapist or a therapeutic group, they are usually not coming to learn yoga, but to get help with or relief from some symptom or health condition that is troubling them. In most cases, the instruction focuses on their condition and how the yoga techniques can help them feel better or improve their function, rather than on the techniques or methods of yoga practice. ⁠ ⁠ Get in touch if you'd like to discuss how yoga therapy might help you⁠ ⁠ #berko #berkhamstedyoga #berkhamsted #yogatherapy⁠

“Yoga therapy is a self-empowering process, where the care-seeker, with the help of the Yoga therapist, implements a personalized and evolving Yoga practice, that not only addresses the illness in a multi-dimensional manner, but also aims to alleviate his/her suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner. Depending upon the nature of the illness, Yoga therapy can not only be preventative or curative, but also serve a means to manage the illness, or facilitate healing in the person at all levels.”⁠ ⁠ - TVK Desikachar⁠ ⁠ Get in touch to book your consultation⁠ ⁠ #berko #berkhamstedyoga #berkhamsted #yogatherapy⁠ ⁠ ⁠
