What is Yoga Therapy?

Canberra Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy is an emerging field of natural medicine that compassionately reintegrates the mind-body relationship. It is a mindful approach to wellness that requires active participation, using the principles of yoga within a professional therapeutic relationship.

 

This evidence-based complementary therapy is particularly effective at improving your mental health, reducing anxiety and depression, and nurturing a deeper knowledge of the self to reawaken a self-healing ability. Yoga therapy can be practiced along with conventional medical treatments.

The heart of Yoga Therapy rests in eudaimonia. Living a life with purpose, meaning and joy irrespective of any medical diagnosis. It does not simply focus on a disease or pathogenesis, it expands your sense of wellness into salutogenesis.

Yoga Therapy is ideal for you if you are;

Will Yoga Therapy suit me?

Support here is essential.

Yoga Therapy Sessions really brought into focus for me that yoga is so much more than just the asana “poses”. Each Yoga Therapy session was like a huge sigh of relief – Kendra created such an immensely generous and forgiving space, and deftly wove together so much knowledge and understanding, that I felt like I could truly let go. Best of all is that Kendra developed for me a personal daily yoga practice that so simply balances me out (and gets me some sleep!) so that I can better ride the highs and lows – a practice for life.

My yoga therapy sessions with Kendra are relaxing and inspiring. Yoga therapy is teaching me ways to observe my body, how symptoms change, and how my body relates to my emotions and mind. Kendra designed a practice for me that fits into the rhythms of my life and is tailored to my physical needs and capabilities. I look forward to doing my yoga practice and I do it most nights now - it feels good and helps me rest and heal.

I love my yoga sessions with Kendra. Each one is unique, and I always leave feeling peaceful, inspired and happy. It's not just about the work we do on the mat, it's also about the discussions and mindfulness concepts that I take with me from my sessions that are having such a positive impact on how I'm choosing to live my life now. I recommend yoga with Kendra for anyone needing help to find some inner peace
