About Yoga Therapy

Therapeutic Yoga uses postural work, breathing practices, relaxation and other Yoga practices to assist in remedying a range of physical, functional and psychological issues. In Therapeutic Yoga, the focus is on the whole person, not just the condition.

Yogic tools may include:

  • Posture (asana)
  • Breathing (pranayama)
  • Mudras
  • Nutrition
  • Lifestyle counselling
  • Self-development guidance

Robyn runs Therapeutic Yoga Workshops throughout the year and is available for private consultation.
