Yoga Therapy Sessions

What is Yoga Therapy?

Good question!

 

At its core, Yoga is an empowering, transformative practice. Yoga Therapy uses these qualities to support well-being through a whole-person approach. The emphasis is on your individual experience, reconnecting with your own power and capacity to find balance and wellness in your own life.

 

Yoga Therapy sessions are personalized to you. Since our focus is your experience, your feedback about what you are experiencing is essential to the process. Our sessions will therefore be a product of our cooperation.
 

What does the process of working together look like?

Yoga Therapy takes a biopsychosocial-spiritual approach. This means that we always see you as a whole and take into account other circumstances apart from physical ones. To do this, we start with an intake, which is a meaningful conversation about the issues that you want to work with (whether they are physical, emotional, breath-related, etc.) and try to paint a fuller picture of you and your life rather than look at any issue in an isolated manner.

After the intake, we will have an experimental movement and breath session that will help me prepare sessions tailored for you. To prepare the sessions, I will carefully select tools of yoga. Our sessions might include yoga postures, stretching, breathing exercises, meditation, relaxation techniques and more. If you don't like a technique or an exercise, we will simply not use it. 


At the beginning of each session, we will find out what is present at the moment, for example: Is your mind busy today? What emotions are present? What are your energy levels? We will always adjust our session to what you are experiencing here and now. A session typically lasts 90 minutes, but it's good to know that we can always adjust according to your needs and circumstances.

 

What is the goal of Yoga Therapy?

Working one on one means that the you get to define the purpose of the sessions according to your needs and wishes. So the goal is up to you and, between us, having no goal is also an option.

 

When preparing yoga therapy sessions and working with individuals, I do keep general intentions in mind. Some of them may apply to you:

o support your well-being as a whole

o work pain-free and with what you are experiencing at the present moment

o practice safely in a safe environment

o move, breathe and relax

o explore the connection between your body, mind and emotions

o create tools that you can use in your daily life

 

Who is a Yoga Therapist?

A yoga therapist is trained to work with a wide range of health conditions.

A partial list of my training courses include:

o Yoga Therapy for Musculoskeletal Issues & Lower Back Pain

o Yoga Therapy for Cardiovascular & Respiratory Health Issues

o Yoga Therapy for the Nervous System, Degenerative Disease & Pain Clinic

o Yoga Therapy for Digestive Issues

o Yoga Therapy for the Reproductive System, Family Dynamics & the Ageing Process

o Yoga Therapy for Endocrine & Immune System Disorders

o Yoga Therapy for Cancer Patients & People Affected by Cancer

o Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy

o Yoga Therapy for People Dealing with Burnout

o Yoga Therapy Support for Individuals with Breast Cancer

 

A certified Yoga Therapist must complete a comprehensive educational program and a practicum under the supervision of an experienced Yoga Therapist. I am currently awaiting my Yoga Therapy final evaluation (scheduled for summer 2024) having completed the full study program and my practicum.

Who is Yoga Therapy for?

Short answer: everyone. A few examples are: people who are interested in connecting mind and body; people who are dealing with particular health condition(s); people who are exploring reducing stress in their lives. You do not need to have previous experience practicing yoga.

In case of diagnosed medical issues, it is important to know that Yoga Therapy is not an alternative treatment. It is meant to support individuals as they go through their process alongside medical healthcare.

I like the idea of mind-body tailored sessions, but the Yoga Therapy process is not for me. Do you offer other types of private sessions?

Yes. I offer relaxation sessions, where we explore together which relaxation techniques work best for you. If you are looking for other yoga sessions, feel welcome to contact me. If I do not offer what you are looking for, I may be able to refer you to a colleague.  

 

What are the costs of the sessions?

60 minutes sessions are €50; 90 minutes sessions are €70. I believe that everyone deserves the experience of exploring and connecting mind and body. Lower funds shouldn't hold you back, so get in touch and we'll find an affordable arrangement.
