with Becky Pell
Yoga therapy is the professional application of the principles and practices of yoga to promote health and well-being within a therapeutic relationship that includes personalised assessment, lifestyle management and yoga practices.
I provide individual yoga therapy sessions, which draw on the many tools of yoga to help you make your own life a better place to be. Yoga therapy is an active therapy, meaning that you take an active role in your own care by doing the prescribed practices both in session and at home. It is a holistic modality, meaning that we address the whole of your human experience – the physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual, as appropriate.
When you book a four-session yoga therapy course, you will receive an intake form which should be completed and returned to me at least 48 hours before our first session. A typical session will include discussion, gentle movement, breathwork and relaxation.
The initial session is 75 minutes to allow time for us to discuss the information on your intake form, and to gather additional information about how you breathe, stand, and move. We will work together to develop a short practice to address your areas of concern, which will be written down for you to practise with at home. Subsequent sessions are 60 minutes.
Why four sessions?
You are a unique individual and yoga therapy is a process - this is a totally bespoke therapy, not a 'one-size-fits-all' treatment. Over the course of four sessions we'll explore what works for you and what doesn't; we'll investigate together to get to the bottom of what's going on for you; and I will teach you the tools to use, to manage and improve your situation.
How do I know if it's right for me?
Four sessions is a commitment, and you need to know if my service feels like a good fit for you. That's why I'm offering you a totally free 15 minute consultation meeting on Zoom to discuss your objectives and what you hope to get from yoga therapy, and see if I can help you. If you don't feel like booking in afterwards, that's fine - there's no obligation whatsoever. If you decide to go ahead, the course investment is £240.
