What is Yoga Therapy?

Contact Erika

Yoga Therapy is a modality that empowers and supports you to manage your own health.  It’s designed to assist you, the whole individual, as opposed to focussing solely on the injury, condition or illness that you might be presenting with. Throughout our sessions together, we will work in a professional and therapeutic way to find the most effective method of treatment for you. This treatment might incorporate a number of principles or practices from the yogic traditions that may range from pranayama (breath work), asana (posture), meditation, diet suggestions, lifestyle counselling (within a yogic context) and self-development guidance. These are applied in a very therapeutic way with the aim of bringing balance to the body and mind. Sounds pretty good hey? So what's next?

Yoga Therapy generally consists of

a minimum of 3 sessions

Tell Me More

1. Initial treatment – In this session we will discuss the reason for Yoga Therapy, discuss your medical history as well as current lifestyle and diet etc.

The second part of this session involves a physical assessment.  We will look at the symptoms that are being presented for the yoga therapy session and observe any of the areas of the body that may be contributing to these symptoms. We will observe the range of motion in the presenting areas in order to decipher a suitable treatment plan.
Some techniques may be given to work with on the day.

It can be really challenging and confronting going through the initial session so if it's okay with you, I'll call you at a time that suite you to check in and see how you are.  A full yoga therapy program will be sent to you after each session, summarizing what we covered, with a clear outline of each practice, why we're including it in your program and how to practice it safely.


2. Yoga Therapy Program – Our second session is generally 7 - 10 days after the first appointment.  In this second session we will go through together a yoga treatment plan just for you!  This session is experimental as we work together to find modifications and variations that feel good for your body. We can create recordings (photograph, film or audio) of any of the practices that we explore, being physical postures, breathing techniques or meditations.  This is a great way of re-creating the practice from home so that you can practice in confidence.  This 

3. Review the Session - Our third session is generally one month after the second.  This gives time to explore the practices and have a chance to integrate them into your life.  In this session we will review the program to see if any changes have occurred for you.  We are then able to make modifications and variations to the practice so that it feels more suitable for your body.

“I booked in for three Yoga Therapy sessions not totally knowing what to expect. Erika made me feel at ease from the outset. She is a good listener, calm, reassuring and patient. I have a few programs to practice at home that are suited specifically to my needs. Now yoga has become a daily practice, which was always one of my intentions. I would recommend Erika, at Change with Yoga to anyone who wants to start making Yoga a more meaningful and enriching experience, with the help of a caring and knowledgeable practitioner.”
