Yoga Therapy


Yoga Therapy with Shira Cohen, learn what it is and how it can transform your life and your loved ones lives. A story, a passion and a practice to empower.

Dec 8, 2021

Joy Ravelli, registered yoga therapist, who has been training yoga teachers for decades and has an IAYT accredited Yoga therapy school, shares her yoga story.

Joy loves to teach and incorporate dance and authentic movement into yoga, a mentor who sees yoga therapy as a friendship with a holistic yoga teacher. And how maintaining joy is the essence of yoga therapy when personalised.

We discuss how all yoga is healing, and the importance of accreditation and regulatory bodies to ensure the quality of yoga teaching and yoga therapy as a profession.

Joy shares how COVID reveals healing isn't a one size fits all treatment forcing medicine to be client led instead. 

We speak on the importance of purpose and one of Joy's gifts is guiding others to the wisdom in our wounds. And finding inspiration in the everyday and navigating life.

We talk about working with the cycles of seasons, months and day. How difficult emotions and habis are related to patriarchal systems, and requires cultivating beneficial patterns to replace them.
