Traditionally, yoga was taught on a one-to-one basis, so the teaching and the practice could be adapted to the individual’s needs. Individual classes allow for a relationship of trust to develop between student and teacher, and ensure that the student’s current life situation is taken into account in the formulation of a personal yoga practice and/or daily routine.
Yoga and ayurveda have been established in tandem through thousands of years of evidence-based practice and results, leading to a complete system based on ancient wisdom and knowledge. Another way of saying this is that both approaches are profoundly rooted in common sense!
At times the therapeutic solutions to various physical and mental health issues, seem obvious and simplistic because we are always looking to achieve balance, which requires the application of the opposite energy to that which is disturbing you. In keeping with these ayurvedic principles, a personalised programme will be developed for you according to your basic constitution (prakriti), and the current health imbalance (dosha).
While holding the space for each person’s unique experience, in the background of every consultation I am drawing on my experience and education in Yogic and Buddhist practice and philosophy, Ayurveda, and Astrology, any and all of which can be used as a healing support.
My yoga therapy practice includes clients dealing with emotional and physical health issues such as back and hip problems, arthritis, high blood pressure, asthma, headaches, digestive problems, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, breast cancer, anxiety and depression.
For years, I have been helping people find the source of their imbalances and chronic illness by working with them compassionately and sensitively to understand the deeper messages of their body.
In most cases, our physical bodies manifest chronic illness and disease as a result of longstanding emotional and psychological imbalances and even sudden traumas, some of which might be obvious and known, and others might not be immediately understood or even remembered by the individual concerned.
By working with an understanding of the energy body, the influential role of the mind and the symbolic meaning of physical ailments, Susan has been able to help people resolve back pain, poor eyesight, asthma, headaches and allergies.
I also use Dr John Sarno’s method for relieving chronic pain, exploring and understanding the influence of the mind and emotions, which has an 85 percent success rate in decades of experience with thousands of patients. This approach is in line with the ancient understanding of Yogic and Ayurvedic teachings regarding the power of the mind to affect the experience of the physical body.
Any ongoing treatment can continue uninterrupted and unhampered by this complementary work. If you are feeling stuck in poor health and can’t find relief or improvement through conventional medical treatment, contact me for an individual session.
Life’s challenges present an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth, and are like signposts on the path to awakening. The practice of all aspects of yoga heals, empowers and inspires people. It’s deeply satisfying to watch students tap into their potential and discover and transform themselves through yoga.
