Svastha Yoga Therapy
Emotional Health

rotator1


We all at times experience stress, grief, worry & anxiety – these emotions are natural responses to life events. Sometimes however these feelings linger and we may find ourselves sinking further into feelings of sadness, despair and low self esteem, which can have a profound effect on our ability to function with clarity and in a state of inner peace – a state which yoga insists is our birth right.

Yoga provides tools that help us to release chronic patterns of stress and tension, often the pre-cursors to anxiety and depression, and help us change our thought patterns so that we may deal effectively with life’s challenges and live happier, healthier lives. Yoga therapy is complimentary to other forms of treatment you may be undergoing.

When working with emotional imbalances we employ the use of asanas (postures) to release stress and revitalise on a physical level, pranayama (breath work) to balance the nervous system and meditation/visualisation techniques to calm the mind. We may also use sound in the form of mantra which has a profound effect on the mind.

If you feel that life is just a bit too much at the moment, you will find that yoga therapy for emotional well-being a profound tool for restoring balance.

Barbara teaches 6 week courses for people suffering with stress disorders, depression and anxiety and is also available for one-to-one consultations.

Our yoga therapists are available to meet with you in a one-to-one consultation and develop a self care routine that can be practiced at your convenience at home. 

Our first session will be centred around listenening to your concerns,  gaining insight to your current abilities around movement and breath and identifying your goals. From this starting point we will design a suitable program for home use that will lead you in a progressive manner toward achieving these goals and that respects your unique requirements, lifestyle and schedule. You will be provided with an easy to follow step by step guide of your program and during the session you will be instructed in each aspect of the program so that you  feel confident to practice at home. 

A second consultation 3 - 5 days after your initial session is recommended to check that the program is fulfilling your needs and make adjustments as necessary. A third session will fine-tune the postures and breathing; where appropriate additional practices may be added to encourage progress. Dependant on your needs, further follow up sessions are available at your convenience.

Svastha Yoga Therapy
for Structural Imbalance

structural

 


Structural imbalances occur for a variety of reasons ranging from injury or stress, poor postural habits to having conditions such as congenital scoliosis. No matter the source, the discomfort associated with structural imbalance can severely impact on our overall sense of well being. Yoga therapy is a wonderful tool that offers many techniques to heal pain and discomfort in the body, and restore an overall sense of health and vitality.

When working with physical issues we mainly employ the use of asanas (postures) adapted to suit the individual and breathing techniques to help release physical tension as well as the mental tension that often arises through dealing with physical discomfort. We seek to improve posture, stabilise areas of stress, strengthen areas of weakness and increase mobility where there is loss of range of motion and stiffness.

At a structural level, yoga therapy helps with:
Back pain ~ Neck & Shoulder pain ~ Hip pain ~ Knee pain ~ Postural imbalance ~ Osteoporosis ~ Arthritis ~ Recovery from injury...and more 

Our yoga therapists are available for One-to-One consultations and we also conduct regular small group classes for people presenting with similar conditions.

Svastha Yoga Therapy

Svastha ~  to stay as your 'self' - i.e. in a state of complete health and balance in body and mind.

Yoga Therapy ~  the adaptation and application of yoga techniques and practices to help individuals facing health challenges manage their condition, reduce symptoms, restore balance and increase vitality.

Svastha yoga therapy is different to what you may experience in a 'regular' yoga class. With yoga therapy the focus is on specific practices, postures etc that are specifically tailored to meet your requirements, whether these are at a physical, physiological or mental/emotional level, whereas a regular yoga class includes a wide range of postures and instruction is at a common level ensuring a positive experience for all students.

At Svastha Yoga we provide consultations on a one-to-one basis as well as conduct therapeutic courses for small groups of people (maximum 6) facing similar health challenges. 

Some conditions will respond quite readily with symptoms clearing and a normal level of mobility / well-being returning quite quickly, while other more complicated conditions may respond more slowly over a period of time. In all cases, the role of yoga therapy is to provide relief and improve mental/emotional stability,  bringing about a greater feeling of well-being.

Yoga therapy is complimentary to any other form of treatment and our therapists are always ready to discuss any concerns about your participation with your healthcare provider.
