Yoga for Therapeutic Change: An Introduction to Breathing Techniques

“The quality of our breath expresses our inner feelings.” - TKV Desikachar

The practice of yoga is primarily the use of a certain set of tools to achieve a goal. What these tools are, and what your goal is, can be entirely individual. However, one of these tools which is of great importance - because of its efficacy - is prānāyāma. 

Prānāyāma is the deliberate manipulation of the breath; the quality of your breath being the main indicator of the functionality of your whole physiological system. The tradition yoga practitioner’s view, is that the ability to breathe well is far more important than physical flexibility. 

Consequently, practicing a breathing technique can effect change much more quickly than a physical practice. This change could actually be a physical improvement, or it may mean a change in your emotional state, e.g. stress. Either way, a breathing practice should be prescribed to an individual with their unique goals and requirements in mind.

If you would like to learn more about your body through breath, and discover some simple yet effective ways to support yourself, 30min one-to-one sessions are available on May 31st from 10am to 5pm Complete beginners are welcome, as are people who have practiced yoga for some time, and who would like to evolve their pre-existing yoga practice. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine: An Introduction to Gua Sha 

Gua Sha is a manual technique that often accompanies acupuncture treatment in Chinese medicine. Commonly it is used for musculoskeletal complaints - e.g. pain, tension & stiffness in the muscles - but it is also used for a whole host of more internal conditions.

The technique involves the use of a small rectangular tool, traditionally made from jade. After lightly applying oil onto the skin, a moderate pressure is used to press down on the body with the tool, which is then maintained whilst running the tool over the affected area. 

When this pressure meets an area of the body that contains what is known, in TCM, as ‘stagnation’ - which can mean a knot in the muscle, blood stasis, or perhaps something a little deeper - then ‘Sha’ comes to the surface of the skin. Sha generally manifests as a red discolouration of the skin, that disappears after a few days following treatment. This is seen as a release process; in other words a release of the stagnation from the system. 

If you have any recent or on-going aches and pains, and perhaps have found that conventional massage techniques etc have not given you the relief you’re seeking, or are just curious to try it for your general wellbeing, 30min Gua Sha sessions are available on May 31st from 10 to 5pm 

Traditional Chinese Medicine: An Introduction to Acupuncture for Joint Pain

Traditional Chinese acupuncture is the stimulation of points on the body that are picked for their functional effect upon the individual. Fine, single-use, sterile needles are used for this stimulation, as they offer an access into our physiological systems that is difficult to achieve through other manual manipulations - like massage. 

How exactly acupuncture works has been a great source of research and study in the West, and is often linked to our nervous system. However, tradition practitioners look at the body in a slightly different way. Much like the nervous system, or an electrical circuit, acupuncture points are viewed as sensitised areas that provide access into an energetic network within our bodies. 

If a light bulb doesn’t work, there are several things that could be going wrong; it may simply be the fault of the bulb, or it could be something to do with the wiring. At it’s best, Chinese medicine examines the whole of the body’s network in order to discover the causation of disease. As with any health care intervention, the best prescribed course of action is tailored to the individual which helps address these causations. In other words, acupuncture treatment is about seeing and treating the whole, and therefore there is no limit on what you can come to acupuncture for.  

However, in this introduction to acupuncture the session times of 30mins do not allow for the lengthier assessment and diagnostic process. These sessions are specifically aimed at joint pain relief, and even more specifically the joints of the ankle, knee, elbow, and wrist. Therefore if you have any recent or long-standing issues in these areas and are interested in trying acupuncture, the 30min sessions will be available on May 31st from 10 am to 5pm

All 30 minute sessions are £25. If you are interested in any of these techniques, but do not feel these shorter, introductory sessions are suited to your particular situation, please get in touch for other available times and prices.

It's well known the fact that yoga has many health benefits and that it's one of the oldest medicine technique ever, however, not many people are eager to give it a shot. Without a will or a personal trainer, yoga classes can be quit challenging. this is one of the reasons why many people still prefer the open mri scanner for immediate diagnosis when it comes to their heath. Regardless of our choices, we should never forget that our health must always be a priority.
