Heart Of England Ayurveda

Yoga Therapy 

Yoga Therapy Coaching offers you a specialised, personalised Yoga programme, comprised of specially selected practices to meet your individual needs for enhanced health and wellness. This is an individually-tailored programme of self-healing tools which will give you a sense of control over your own symptoms, pain-relief and recovery, and can support the work of primary health carers to be more effective.

  • Are you experiencing chronic back, hip, shoulder or neck pain, or ongoing joint pain?
  • Are your energy levels frequently low?
  • Do you have difficulty sleeping?
  • Are you struggling to sustain optimum weight?
  • Are you troubled by mental anxiety or depression?
  • Do you have hormone-related problems such as menstrual pain and irregularities, migraines, menopausal symptoms?
  • Is your immunity not as you would like it to be?

Yoga Therapy can harness your essential vital energy, support you with modern-day physical therapy practices, and draw on ancient Yoga and Ayurveda wisdom to create a comprehensive programme of recovery for you. Yoga Therapy can wake up your innate healing forces.

Depending on your personal circumstances, Yoga Therapy 1-1 Coaching can stand alone as your “go-to” therapy programme, or can act as a support for the treatment you are receiving from a primary carer

“Health is wealth. Peace of mind is happiness. Yoga shows the way.”

Swami Vishnudevananda

The practices you will receive in Yoga Therapy sessions are drawn from traditional Hatha Yoga, Ayurvedic wisdom, and modern physical therapy techniques. With regular practice, they can bring a surprising relief of symptoms to many.

  • Transformational breath practices to restore equilibrium to the mind and emotions, and to cleanse and/or rejuvenate the body, calm and uplift the body and mind.
  • Deep relaxation and visualisation to release deeply held stresses, and to nourish and strengthen the body’s recovery.
  • Pain-relief techniques to help you feel at ease again and to reduce inflammation.
  • Personalised simple meditation techniques to support renewal of body tissues, enhance energy, and nurture inner strength and confidence.

How Yoga Therapy Sessions Work:

It is recommended to meet with Sara at least three times over a three month period so that she can adjust your Yoga therapy programme as needed, as your body and mind begin to transform and heal.

“Thank you so much for helping me with my lower back problems. The exercises you have showed me have really worked, and I have much less trouble getting to sleep. I was really impressed with the way you assessed my weak areas and designed a programme specifically for me.

KF, Barford

Initial assessments

We begin with an Ayurvedic assessment to look at internal imbalances which might be the root cause of symptoms.

In cases where there are musculo-skeletal problems, this is followed by physical assessment of your musculo-skeletal system, looking at postural anomalies, muscle strength/weakness and joint range of motion.

Stress levels are taken into account, and the degree to which these are triggers for or a by-product of symptoms.

Agree An Individually Prescribed Therapeutic Yoga Programme

Based on findings, we will work together to create a personalised Yoga programme for you which takes into account your daily schedule, current commitments, fatigue and energy levels.

You will receive a written programme and links to any available YouTube recordings of prescribed practices for extra support.

To experience benefit from the Yoga practices it is required that you do your personal practices at least 4 times per week , for at least one month. Your personal programme will be created so that it fits comfortably into your daily schedule: the practices usually take no more than 15 – 20 minutes.

Follow-Up Sessions

We will schedule follow up meetings of 45 minutes to 1 hour each month, for at least two months, so that we can adapt your practices as necessary and as your body starts to heal and transform.

You may be recommended to take a therapeutic Ayurveda Body Treatment to support your recovery, an Ayurveda Consultation for extra support with herbs and diet, and/or a Journey Therapy session if there is a suspected mental/emotional root cause of symptoms.


It is £265 for a 3 month programme of Yoga Therapy sessions.

This includes written assessments, written details of practices and recordings where relevant. Written Ayurveda dietary and lifestyle advice might also be given to support your Yoga Therapy practices.
