The aim of Yogatherapy
is to help relieve suffering and to improve wellbeing by bringing balance to all the energies of the body; to the physical, as well as the mental and emotional levels of our existence.


How is this done? 
Yogatherapy is implemented on the physical level through asanas or yoga poses and somatic awareness training
On the mental and emotional levels we work with affirmations, somatic awareness, guided relaxations and a process of psychological transformation through self-inquiry.
New beneficial habits are gently introduced one by one, to replace existing non-beneficial habits.
Pranayama (yogic breathing techniques) is applied for support with the particular mental, physical and emotional challenges you are facing.  

Your therapist will delve into the connection between psychosoma and thoughts, habits and emotions to help you learn to restore long-term harmony between the physical and mental-emotional levels.

In practical terms:
Specific asanas (yoga poses), breathing techniques, relaxations and affirmations are applied to relieve specific ailments, whether psychological, physical or emotional in nature. Each week you will have a program to follow, which will include a change in thoughts and habits. Your therapist will keep track weekly, of your progress and adapt your program accordingly. 

The result for you as the patient is an improved sense of wellbeing that will provide you with strength in face of life's inevitable adversities. 

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass by -
It's about learning to dance in the rain!
