It's been quite a few years since I've written a regular yoga blog. Since then, I qualified as a Yoga Therapist. So to kick off the resurrection of my blog, I thought I would explain more about Yoga Therapy. I hope you find it of interest! I'd love to hear your comments and any questions you may have.
WHY YOGA THERAPY?
You can read a bit more about me and my journey into yoga therapy here, but through training to be a yoga teacher, I realised I wanted to share yoga as a wellness tool that was accessible to all. This led me to train as a Yoga Therapist.
But it’s a funny thing with Yoga Therapy. Most people have never heard of it and even many of my family and friends still don’t know that I am a Yoga Therapist. In many ways, that doesn’t surprise me. While most people can easily conjure up a mental image for a Yoga Teacher, few can do the same for a Yoga Therapist. What on earth does that look like?
