What is yoga therapy?

Yoga Therapy uses the principles, practices, and philosophies of yoga to tackle mental, emotional and physical health issues and illnesses.

Including yoga practice and guidance, personalised life coaching and counseling, yoga therapy with an experienced yoga therapist is a holistic and durable way to manage your health, emotions and general well-being.

Yoga Therapy empowers you to tackle your challenges in a safe and supportive environment with a qualified professional.

Who can benefit from yoga therapy?

Anyone looking to improve their emotional and physical well-being can benefit from working with a yoga therapist, but yoga therapy has shown especially positive results for people suffering from the following challenges:

Chronic health issues such as sleep disorders, back pain, digestive issues, scoliosis, asthma, fertility, and menstrual issues, and autoimmune diseases.

Mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, addictions, and PTSD.

What makes a Yoga Therapist different than a Yoga Teacher?


A yoga teacher is trained to guide students through classes and sequences to better their health and wellbeing in a general way.

A Yoga Therapist has been trained to work with the system of yoga to treat specific conditions in a therapeutic setting.

“Gecko Yoga were among the VERY first IAYT Certified Yoga Therapists in 2016”
