The word Therapy comes from the Greek word therapeia meaning ‘healing’
Yoga is a scientific system of self-investigation, self-transformation, & self-realisation
In Yoga Therapy we don't believing in 'fixing you' as we believe that YOU are whole & complete - that we are all perfectly, imperfect.
There are times however when we don't feel this way.
Physically, Mentally, Emotionally for some reason we feel disconnected, we feel a little 'broken', like we are not being our true authentic selves, we feel a little lost & need some support.
We don't feel at home either in our own skin &/or in the world around us.
