Yoga therapy is a holistic personalised program that focuses on bringing your health into balance using yogic and Ayurvedic principles, according to your current needs, and helps you to develop self practice. It offers therapeutic sequences that are designed to help with any health conditions and symptoms. The focus is on bringing about strength, flexibility and balance, as well as balancing the elements in the body.
Although all yoga is potentially therapeutic and healing, yoga therapy is the specific application of yogic tools—postures/exercises, breath work, meditation techniques, mudras, and more—to address an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional needs.
Many people first learn about yoga through its physical practices, but a common misconception is that it’s all about stretching or movement. In fact, yoga therapy can help people who can’t move at all, as well as active individuals!
The yogic model of health is unique because it addresses every aspect of life rather than considering each body part or system separately. Yoga therapy is a safe way of working with the natural capacity of your body and mind to optimise well-being.
A general public yoga class can certainly ease everyday aches, pains, and mood complaints. But a yoga therapy session, whether one-to-one or in a small group, goes much further because it is tailored to the individual.
Ayurvedic lifestyle changes such as diet and daily routine are also included in the individual program.

My name is Alla.
I am a qualified Yoga teacher in Traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa ( Vinyasa Yoga Academy, India ), Professional Life Coach ( Australian Institute Of Coaching), and Ayurveda Yoga Therapist (Vaidya’s Ayurveda Academy, India).
I have been practicing yoga for 16 years, and teaching for 2,5 years in Australia, Thailand and India at yoga schools, ashrams, retreats and leading my own classes. I teach Yin, traditional Hatha, Restorative, guided meditations, Yoga Nidra and yoga related workshops. I offer Ayurveda Yoga Therapy one-on-one sessions and design individual programs to suit client’s current health needs. Before becoming full time traveling yoga teacher I also conducted Sound Healing workshops in Melbourne, Australia.
When living in Australia I used to work with young children for 9 years, incorporating yoga and meditation for children as a part of the kindergarten curriculum.
When I teach yoga classes I have the ability to incorporate everyone in the class and include many options and variations that suit people’s needs. I am highly intuitive and am able to guide the class in the direction of what I perceive to be the most beneficial.
It is important for me to bring all the aspects of yoga into teaching. I often incorporate yamas and niyamas, mudras, pranayama, bandhas, mantras into the classes and workshops that I teach. I am well experienced in teaching beginners, elders and people with restricted abilities.
In the present moment I am teaching TTC in person and online at Soham Ayur Ashram in Karnataka, India.
