Move Feel & Be Well by Integrating Yoga Therapy and Physiotherapy

Move • Feel • Be Well

By blending the science of Physiotherapy with the holistic wisdom of Yoga, you will experience a novel therapeutic approach where the intention is to guide you towards treating and healing yourself with increased awareness of your own movement. You will be engaged and fascinated by the path of your healing when the focus of therapy is broadened to acknowledge how your social, cognitive, emotional, and physical states impact how you move and feel.
