Intro to yoga therapy
Welcome to Healthie Moves. At Healthie Moves we teach Yoga and Yoga therapy. Our studios are both beautifully located and suitably well-equiped. We use yoga therapy to ease pain, stress and tension as well as to promote strength and a wonderful sense of well-being.
We offer specialised classes geared to those with or without physical problems. They are aimed to heal in a relaxing and supportive environment.
Yoga therapy is the process empowering individuals to progress towards improved health and well being through the application of the philosophy and practice of yoga. Traditionally all yoga was given to elicit this kind of change. More recently this has been supported by evidence-based research to align with Western medicine.
Yoga therapy is usually practices one-to-one or in small groups, and is customised to each client. A yoga therapy program gives you the advantage of having something to use daily to both effect change and maintain it.
Working with yoga therapy we incorporate the principles of yoga. These operate form the same base of oriental medicine as acupuncture, and are similarly broadly effective. In doing this we also implement principles of exercise science and adhere to physiotherapeutic principle.
Yoga therapy can stand alone. It is not meant to replace traditional medical care; rather it is complementary to it. Studies show it is effective when incorporated into the health team, working in conjunction with physiotherapists and other health professionals.
