Private Yoga Therapy sessions help improve posture, strengthen minor muscle groups, lengthen and relieve tension in the muscles, increase flexibility, as well as bring awareness and correct old postural habits from driving, sitting down in an incorrect position which compromises the spine and spending long hours by the computer desk.
Yoga asanas (postures) are also applied for depression, anxiety, stress, and thyroid issues, as such a dedicated mind and body approach to breath and physical movement helps bring more balance and wellbeing by enhancing strength in mind & body connection.

A combination of gentle methods will ease physical discomfort after only a few sessions and make excellent improvements over the course of a regular weekly practice.
