So what is Yoga Therapy?

A session with Aimee more closely resembles an appointment with a physical therapist or rehabilitation specialist than your typical yoga class. The emphasis on breath, energy and relaxation being the difference - sharing a range of tools from a collective group of yoga techniques, such as postures, breathing exercises, meditation, philosophy and lifestyle tips, to encourage health and well-being for modern day living and a 1-2-1 personalised experience.You will experience a safe, nurturing and welcoming experience at Synergy. Each session is tailored to you making your experience unique. Whether you want to learn the basics of yoga or are interested in the healing benefits of practice, there is something for all to feel nourished by.

You will arrive to a welcoming space, we’ll settle in with a herbal tea and a chat as we go through your consultation form, I then will spend time talking to a client about any problems or concerns that they want me to address. From this initial consultation I will tailor the session to meet your needs and share yogic remedies and techniques to guide, nurture and restore. There is not a ‘one-fix-all’ approach to healing so with this in mind my focus is to meet you, the clients needs and to personalise your experience.

Do I need to stop medications and doctor visits?

Clients are encouraged to work along side their medication and GP, it can be very dangerous to suddenly stop taking medication without the help and guidance of your doctor. The yoga practices shared can antidote and support or balance any side effects of the drugs you may be already taking and lower the amount of medication the client has to take. Via the clients doctors guidance, eventually they may be able to avoid the need of medications all together. Yoga Therapy empowers the individual to take control of their own healing, to spot the signs of a relapse before it happens and replace the need to reach for a higher dose of medication with an alternative approach. Yoga Therapy has many approaches to easing the symptoms of many illnesses through practices of mindfulness, various meditations, diet, affirmations, pranayama and asana practice as well as lifestyle advice to encourage each persons journey of self discovery and healing.

What is the difference between a Yoga class and a Yoga Therapy session?

Yoga therapy gives the client a chance to discover their potential. To free themselves of mental, emotional and physical obstacles and challenges and a yoga therapist the opportunity to fully utilise the tools of yoga to help the individual with any suffering they may have. Unlike in a yoga class where the teacher has many bodies to look after they can structure a tailored healing sequence unique and personalised to that person. A person with injury or illness will get much more from a 1:1 therapy session than that of a group class as the session with a yoga therapist is synchronised to that 'body' in particular.
