Yoga Therapy involves working one-to-one with your teacher.  Your yoga will begin with you and move in a way and at a pace that reflects your style of learning.  

 

As a client commitment to regular practice is required.  Following an intitial consultation you will receive a prescriptive practice .. tailormade to maintain your good health and wellbeing at any time, or to address a current condition, challenge or season in life.

One-to-one sessions are also popular with more experienced students wishing to explore deeper into aspects of the practice that are interesting for them personally.
