Yoga Therapy is different from attention in a group class and from taking a private yoga lesson.

Yoga Therapy combines the 5000 year-old science of yoga with modern peer-reviewed research to manage a range of health and wellbeing circumstances.  The approach is tailored to the individual and equips the client to be an active participant in the management of his or her overall wellbeing, recovery or rehabilitation.  Yoga therapy does not aim to replace a client’s preferred mainstream medical care but can be designed to complement a person’s existing health plan. 

A good yoga therapist will never promise to “cure” a condition, however yoga therapy improves the level of your wellbeing whatever your starting point. It has successfully been used to address a wide variety of health problems from sore backs and arthritis, balance issues, headaches and insomnia, chronic pain, preparation for and recovery from surgery, cancer (from diagnosis, to treatment, to recovery), neurological conditions such as stroke, Parkinsons Disease, MRD, anxiety and depression and phobias. As the scientific literature continues to build regarding the effectiveness of yoga therapy, it is becoming increasingly accepted by western medicine as a complementary modality.

The Yoga Therapy sessions are a two-way process where you will work with Sue to develop a very simple plan that is unique to your needs, that you enjoy and can be practised at home. The length of the plan is up to the individual and it might dovetail with recommendations from other health professionals. The first consultation takes about 90 minutes and then the two follow-up sessions are an hour each. The client is given a recording of the session to help with the home practice. Clients love it!

Currently in Australia, any yoga teacher can claim to be a yoga therapist. It is very important for those seeking this modality to enquire of the therapist’s training in this specific area. Sue has undertaken over 900 hours of training specific to yoga therapy and is a registered Yoga Therapist with Yoga Australia and with the Australasian Association of Yoga Therapists.
