Yoga therapy combines traditional yoga with modern medicine. It comprises postural and breathing exercises, relaxation techniques and meditation to suit the needs of an individual. It is designed to promote all round health as well as assisting particular medical conditions such as:

  • anxiety and stress
  • depression
  • arthritis
  • asthma
  • back pain
  • digestive problems
  • multiple sclerosis
  • chronic fatigue syndrome (ME)
  • insomnia
  • migraine

An initial session will begin with a consultation, taking note of the client's physical condition, medical history and any related lifestyle factors. Using this information a programme of therapy would then be agreed. Future sessions would involve teaching and practicing a range of yoga postures, breathing exercises, relaxation techniques and visualisation activities. An initial session is likely to be an hour long and further sessions 30 to 60 minutes long.

Yoga Therapy is not currently regulated within the UK. This means there are no laws which stipulate what, if any, qualifications and experience are required in order to practice. There are various professional associations which are self-regulated and they do require members to provide proof of qualifications and training, as well as adhering to a Code of Ethics and Conduct. Yoga Therapy professional associations include:

  • The British Wheel of Yoga (BWY)
  • International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT)

It is important you feel safe with the yoga therapist and therefore we would advise you choose one that is fully trained and that is ideally a member of a professional association. All therapists on the site have indicated they are registered with one, however it advised you also make the necessary checks.
