Physio-yoga & Wellbeing provides evidence-based training combining physio, yoga, and meditation.

Physio-Yoga is a blend of the modern science of Physiotherapy and the ancient wisdom of Yoga Therapy. Physiotherapists are experts at fixing injuries and teaching safe exercises. We use hands-on techniques, exercise, and machines such as laser, electrical stimulation, and ultrasound to help people heal their injuries.

Yoga Therapists are lifestyle management experts. Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the philosophy and practice of Yoga. Yoga Therapy practices include physical poses (asana), breathing exercises (pranayama), visualization (Bhavana), guided relaxation and awareness exercises (Yoga Nidra), meditation and positive thinking. 

Physio-Yoga combines the tools of Physiotherapy and the tools of Yoga Therapy to identify the causes and contributing factors of your injuries or disease to help heal you faster and get you back to the activities you enjoy.
