Yoga Therapy works with prana, the healing force in the body, directing it to where it is most needed. The premise of Yoga Therapy is that all illness on any level begins with a blockage in the flow of prana. Working with simple body movements to increase functionality and with breath, our intention is to unblock prana, like unblocking a water channel, so that prana can move into and ‘irrigate’ the parts that are being under-supplied.
Yoga Therapy works at a deep level, stimulating relaxation, and raising the healing potential of the system. Breath and gentle movement are often used, as well as visualisation, meditation, and chanting techniques. Depending on the illness or phase of injury, the practice may involve only resting and specific breathing techniques to begin with. Working over a number of sessions Flo will provide you with the tools to move from dis-ease/injury through to full strength and recovery.
