Yoga Therapy with Aly
From March 2020, Aly will be offering Yoga Therapy sessions at a beautiful, private studio in Coggeshall, near Colchester. Aly is a British School of Yoga, level 1, certified Yoga Therapist. Her experience of being a Yoga teacher for over 12 years, has now led her to offer (somatic) Yoga Therapy, which is done on a ‘one to one, ‘or ‘one to two’ person basis.
Aly has also been fully certified in first aid with the St Johns
Ambulance Service, for over 20 years.
Although Yoga is a therapeutic practice, there are many differences between a Yoga teacher and a Yoga Therapist, and a Yoga class and a Yoga Therapy session. Yoga, provides the tools for a process of self-investigation and development, which then guides us into self- realisation.
However, the general public still view Yoga as exercise, and most often, attend community classes with like minded people. Others look for more instruction, to explore aspects of meditation and pranayama. When a client seeks out a Yoga Therapist or Therapeutic group, they are usually seeking help from some symptom or health condition. The instruction focuses on their condition, in order to improve their function, rather than the technique of Yoga practice. The Yoga Therapist focuses on their client’s needs through listening, questioning, observing and appropriate touch.
Examples of conditions that a Yoga Therapist can help with are: chronic stress, fatigue, PTSD, insomnia, pain management, IBS, migraine, depression and anxiety, to name just a few.
