 Holistic Package

Vanessa combines her physiotherapy understanding and practice with her knowledge of  yoga to help students who have had long standing pain to get back into moving safely. She works gradually with hands on holistic physiotherapy techniques and yoga to bring about profound and lasting change in the body and mind. Neuroscience tells us that chronic pain, felt in the body, takes root in the connections in the brain. The main way to resolve the pain is to exercise. In order to resolve the pain we must start to move again and reprogram those connections that tell us that the body is in pain, to feel pain free. The more ways in which we move the better. Yoga is a perfect medium for this. It can be slow and cautious but it introduces movement in many different ways and can be graduated to suit the individual. Vanessa will set up an individual program for you that you can practice at home. She will revisit this with you each week or two.

Combining yoga and birth knowledge

Vanessa has also developed pregnancy yoga and birthing skills classes combining yoga and birth knowledge. She trained as a childbirth educator and has taught Prenatal Yoga and Couples Birth Workshops for the last 30 years. Her focus is on keeping birth as normal as possible and finding confidence in your own resources for birth. Classes focusing on natural pain techniques and confidence for birth greatly reduces intervention rates, cesareans, perineal trauma and birth trauma.
