I am a fully qualified Yoga Therapist with over ten years experience. I currently run several general yoga therapy classes around the Bury area, as well as classes for the over 50s, and a class for students with Multiple Sclerosis.
I hold individual 1-2-1 sessions at a student's home, where possible, so they can relax in familiar surroundings. These are more appropriate when dealing with more specific health conditions so a more tailored, individual programme can be developed with each student.
Students with a wide range of conditions have benefited from the sessions. These include strokes, arthritis and other joint conditions, Parkinson's Disease, MS, ME, anxiety and depression, bad backs, sciatica, cancer to name but a few.
I use a wide range of equipment to help support and relax each individual when it is required. I also use all aspects of yoga especially postures, breathing, relaxation, sound and meditation when it is relevant and effective to do so.
