Bronwen is a certified yoga teacher and Yoga Therapist.
I use movement, somatic counselling skills and modified yoga and breathing practices to address the specific health issues impacting the lives of my clients.
To begin with, I take a full client history and complete a physical and breathing assessment. This ensures that the practices that are suggested are effective and appropriate for each client’s individual health issues and goals for healing. Every individual personal therapy programme includes pain-free physical movements – no matter how small and simple – breathing techniques, relaxation, guided meditation and the opportunity to share experiences within a therapeutic relationship.
A Yoga Therapist links the brain, physiology, pathology and behavior in a multidimensional, whole person approach, which is crucial for health and wellbeing, both physical and mental.
Working with a maximum of 8 people per group, I teach gentle and accessible yoga classes, which are geared towards supporting mobility, building strength, inducing relaxation and encouraging healthy breathing patterns. My therapeutic approach recognises and adapts for individual abilities or challenges and focuses on safe and sound practices, allowing you to experience the maximum benefit from your yoga practice as well as enjoying your time spent on your mat.
