“With an emphasis on the integration of mind, body and spirit, individual Yoga Therapy provides a unique approach to explore and resolve physical, emotional and mental challenges at their root cause. A Yoga approach to therapy goes beyond the traditional ‘talk therapy’ techniques which are ‘top down’ approaches. By incorporating the practices of asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing) and meditation which are ‘bottom up” approaches, clients can improve mental, emotional and physical well being.” – Barb Quinlan.
