Yoga Therapy

Horizon Yoga Therapy can assist with the management of pain problems and medical conditions, injury rehabilitation, and stress management.

Classes or individual therapy session include modified yoga practices to help in self-managing their pain problems, injuries (or post-surgery), stress, fatigue or medical conditions; as well as those wanting to return to a previous yoga practice after such issues.

Therapeutic yoga includes:

  • Physical poses (‘asana’) – modified as needed for individual  issues
  • Breathwork or breathing exercises (‘pranayama’) – for relaxation & stress management, as well as optimal respiratory (lung) function and mobility of the ribcage and spine.
  • Mindfulness including mindful movement
  • Many other yoga practices (often more conducive to learning via individual sessions)

Conditions:

You don’t have to be flexible or fit to do yoga!!  However some clients feel unable or hesitant to attend a ‘normal’ yoga class – these are the people who should see our Specialist Sports Physiotherapist, Vicki.
