I am so grateful to you for helping me with unprecedented recovery process from chronic pains associated with degenerated herniated disc. Throughout last year, I tried Physio, Acupuncture, Chiro, Reflexology, Massotherapy, and of course pain killers, all in all with less effective result.
Before making a request to my GP for an operation recently, on persistent recommendations by my daughters, I started private Yoga lessons with you. OMG, what a transformation!
Amongst other things, you have helped me understand appropriate body movements, upper body structure, muscles functions and breathing techniques.
I have improved so much so, in such short time, that I don't at all think of an operation.
I will recommend to my GP & Orthopedist that taking few private Yoga lessons by a seasoned Yoga therapist should be the first step before prescribing any other strategy when it comes to patients with herniated disc/back related problems.
I am confident that after such learning, other approaches such as Chiro, if needed, could be more result oriented.
Thanks a Million;
Best Regards, Dr. Reza Shafiepour
“If you are looking for a yoga teacher who will guide you through a health journey that will feed your mind, body and soul, I highly recommend Helene Couvrette. I had studied with Helene at her studio years ago and achieved amazing strength, balance and breathing in my practice. When I was looking for a private yoga therapist to help my recovery from a major surgery, I immediately reached out to her and was so glad I did. With her extensive training and experience teaching people living with or recovering from health challenges, she was able to help me heal on many levels in complete safety. I’ve never encountered a yoga professional with such extensive knowledge of how the human body works and how to move without causing injury. Helene is a kind and open person who will enrich your life, whatever your yoga goals or experience might be. I’m looking forward to continuing my practice with her online sessions!” - Amanda Gay
After 40 years of health care work, I retired. Stress no.1.
Shortly after I had major reconstructive hand surgery. Stress no. 2.
After weeks of casts, ortheses and physio I was anxious to get the use of my hand. No problem I will do yoga.
Having never done it before and not able to use my injured hand Stress no 3.
I was very fortunate enough to consult with Helene. She was very observant to see I had my injured hand taking over my life. After individual, personal, patient and professional lessons I am proud to say I joined the regular classes after getting permission from my surgeon.
I no longer center my day around my right hand, retirement etc.
Thank you Helene

After more than 7 years of back pain and numerous osteopathy and physiotherapy sessions, Helene was able to help me find relief. Her vast knowledge of the human system and her passion for helping others comes through in her gentle approach to healing. She not only helped me with my pain, she also taught me proper alignment and breathing to help prevent or manage any future pain.
“Suffering from arthritis in my hip and a stress related disorder, I recently turned to Yoga in hopes that it could provide me with extra help in dealing with these personally challenging health issues. Three weeks later, I already feel benefits of my investment. Helene’s great listening skills coupled with her extensive knowledge of physiology make for a structured yet personalized physical & mental training environment. With every session, I feel increasingly empowered to control my emotional and physical response to stress and pain. I am also learning how to be more conscious and deliberate of my posture during daily activities. Already, this has provided me with increased flexibility in my hips, knees and lower back while I continue to develop a much needed mindfulness skillset to help me cope with stress.
“Yoga therapy is a self-empowering process, where the care-seeker, with the help of the Yoga therapist, implements a personalized and evolving Yoga practice, that not only addresses the illness in amulti-dimensional manner, but also aims to alleviate his/her suffering in a progressive, non-invasive and complementary manner. Depending upon the nature of the illness, Yoga therapy can not only be preventative or curative, but also serve a means to manage the illness, or facilitate healing in the person at all levels.”
