Pilates exercises are designed to bring your body back into balance through specific movements that both strengthens and mobilises your entire physique in a healthy way.
Many injuries are caused by muscular imbalances within our body – our posture, the way we walk, bend over, sit down, lie down or exercise, overtime, can cause physical imbalances.
When this occurs the body is more perceptible to strains, pulls, tears or worse.
Yoga therapy is a process to empower you to improve your health and well-being through the practice of yoga. In other words, yoga therapy is a whole-body approach to better health by using the tools of yoga to meet your specific physical, mental and emotional needs and goals. You’re an active participant on your path to wellness.
The tools of yoga include: Physical postures and movements (asanas). Breathing exercises (pranayama). Meditation/relaxation (dhyana).
Amanda, our Yoga Therapist will review your history and speak with you about any health concerns. Determine movements, where appropriate, that would be safe for you. Show you how to use proper form and technique to prevent injury. Explain how each pose affects your body. Guide you in relaxation and stress management. Help you reach your personal wellness goals. Yoga therapy is a recommended practice in addition to treatment or management from a healthcare provider for any underlying health conditions. The effects of yoga therapy vary based on each person’s experience. You don’t need to have any experience with yoga before starting yoga therapy.
Yoga is more than just a physical exercise, it is an ancient philosophy and way of life. However, the physical practice of yoga is a holistic approach to the body and includes breathwork, physical movement that both stretches and strengthens the body and meditation to do likewise with the mind!
Our sister studio, Falmouth Yoga Space, has a variety of classes on offer including a weekly therapeutic class for those recovering from injuries. If you are unsure which class to attend, let us help!

Amanda is a highly experienced yoga teacher who draws from several styles of yoga and other movement modalities – such as Feldenkrais.
Amandas therapeutic background as a craniosacral therapist deepens her intelligent and intuitive understanding of the human body. Her style of teaching is particularly suited to anyone carrying an injury.
Amanda has been teaching yoga for 30 years. Following her fine art degree she started studying Iyengar yoga in Australia and continued to intermediate level in the UK. During this time her curiosity led her to study other styles of yoga and particularly more somatic movement through Feldenkrais.
Amanda teaches several classes a week from intermediate to therapeutic yoga. She contributes to several teacher trainings around the UK encouraging enquiry into how and why patterns might be manifesting in our system and how they influence our lives off the mat. She also focuses on short level 2 trainings that are intended to provide inspiration, empowerment and fresh insight to experienced teachers.
Amanda is out clinic director and would be happy to talk to you and discuss any questions you may have about our therapies or booking appointments.
Keren has had an avid interest in Ayurveda since she undertook her first yoga teacher training in 2004. During that course and sub sequent teacher trainings, she skimmed the surface of this ancient healing modality and began to incorporate little elements into her day to day life.
In 2012, Keren went to San Francisco to undertake a yoga teacher training with Laughing Lotus and it was during this training that she began to realise how amazing this science was.
In 2017 Keren returned to Laughing Lotus, this time in New York to study with Dr Ali Cramer and Dr Claudia Welch on an Ayurveda for Women’s Health training. This training inspired her to go on and undertake her 750hr Ayurveda practitioner course with the Ayurvedic Institute in Croydon, UK. Since then Keren has continued to study a variety of short courses with Ayurvedic masters across the globe.
Keren has experienced the healing effects of Ayurveda first hand in her own body and is excited to share what she has learnt with her clients.
