How it Works

Sheilah Laffan is a passionate yoga therapist, with experience & a wealth of education. She is well equipped to helping people reconnect back with their body, as well as meet and maintain their goals. Using simple, accessible tools which are effective for their needs and can be applied in their everyday lives, not just in the sessions.

 

This therapeutic approach is person centric and holistic - I work with you, responding to your needs in a safe, welcoming and trauma sensitive manner.

Improving your well-being physically, mentally & emotionally. 
 

Sessions are tailored for what you need whether you want to:

  • support your everyday quality of life and cultivate greater calm and resilience.

  • recover from a particular event, experience, struggle or feeling.

  • access supporting tools to help you live with greater comfort and ease whatever your difficulties.

  • improve performance, reach goals, or prepare for an event such as exam, speech, birth or surgery.

  • comfortably recover from or live with an injury, condition or illness.

  • tools to help you with any physical, mental or emotional stress, discomfort or pain.

  • connect to things that truly matter to you so that you can build a positive future and find greater ease in the present regardless of circumstances.

  • use this therapeutic approach as a stand-alone tool or as a complimentary practice in addition to your current therapeutic support.

 

This is achieved by gently using yoga therapy tools to help you develop:

  • more self-agency (via greater embodiment which is awareness and attunement to your internal and external states).

  • better relationship and understanding of your autonomic nervous system (so that you can switch between ‘safe” and “protective” modes more freely and consciously).

  • greater resilience (by widening your window of tolerance).

  • skills to deal with life’s challenges whether they are physical, mental and emotional (by gaining effective tools that help you manage the space between stimulus and response so that you can choose more often to respond rather than react).

  • balance in life with an appreciation for your personal needs and values which translates to improved wellbeing and quality of life.
