Yoga therapy is the practice of using yoga philosophy and techniques to help people heal at a physical, mental / emotional and spiritual level.
The practice may use asanas (postures), pranayama (breath work techniques), mantras, relaxation techniques and meditation.
Originally, yoga was taught one-on-one - guru to student - to benefit the individual.
We are all unique with our own assets and challenges as well as life challenges, illnesses and injuries.
When I design a yoga practice for you, it is to address all the above for your individual needs and situation.
I use asana, relaxation techniques and meditations that are appropriate for you and design a plan using drawings, photographs and sometimes recordings that you can follow in your daily practice at home.
Your program is then modified as you change and grow in your yoga practice and circumstances.
I also encourage you to attend the group classes as well. When practicing yoga in a group we are energized, uplifted and inspired beyond our own circumstances.
For an individual session schedule an appointment session with Fiona ph 0412 753 373.

I am a qualified Yogalates instructor, with specialist training in yoga after cancer. I also have a diploma of remedial massage, and trained and specialised in oncology massage and lymphoedema management. CLICK HERE to find a registered practitioner.
These classes therefore reflect the theory of manual lymphatic drainage - principles of improving lymphatic drainage and enhancing the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) to rejuvenate our whole system.
I regularly attend relevant conferences, courses and workshops to update my knowledge, to inspire growth, change and introduce fresh elements to our classes and new practical techniques to my massage clients.
Yoga after cancer classes are generously sponsored by Lasseters Health Club and Palliative Care Central Australia.
A gold coin donation (if it can be afforded) on entry is appreciated when you attend these classes.
