YIN YOGA - NATALIE

What is it?
Yin is a gentle, passive style of yoga with all asanas (poses) practised seated on your mat.   By holding the poses for a little longer and focusing on the breath, Yin becomes a very meditative practice, leaving you feeling rested and relaxed.  Yin combines traditional yoga with Chinese Meridian  theory working on the acupuncture points of the body, similar to getting an internal massage!
 
Who?
Yin is suitable for anyone who prefers a more gentle style of yoga; who suffer with stiff, aching muscles and joints; sufferers of back pain and reduced mobility; people who have difficulty sleeping or relaxing; and for anyone who wants to feel healthier and become more mindful.
 
What do I wear?
Soft and loose fabrics – anything you feel comfortable in. Bring your yoga mat. Mats can be provided on request.

Why?
Yin works on a deep level into the muscle tissue, stretching connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and helps to loosen joints.  The passive and meditative nature of Yin enables you to become mindful and aware of your body.  You will find stiff, tight places and blockages and will become able to relieve these problem areas.  Even after a short time of practising, you will sleep better, have more energy, become more agile and have an increased awareness of your own body and health.

Clinical Yoga for Back Pain Course - The Yoga Physios

What is it?
We have combined our clinical experience of managing back pain with our love of teaching yoga to design this Clinical Yoga for Back Pain course. Our six week course is designed to help you understand your spine, how it moves, and why it can sometimes become a source of pain or dysfunction. 

The course will give you the tools you need to take control of your own back, keep it healthy and strong, and manage flare-ups without fear. It is important that we adopt good movement patterns, and yoga is ideal for managing back problems because it incorporates breathing with movement. We will teach you a flowing sequence of specifically chosen yoga positions, or asanas, to develop your mobility, flexibility, strength, control and overall body awareness. 
Each session begins with a short talk on various topics surrounding the spine. During the course we will also teach you simple self-management techniques to treat your own joints and soft tissues. 
 

Who? 
Yoga is NOT just for the fit and flexible. The beauty of yoga is that it can be used to benefit people of all ages and abilities. This class is appropriate for anyone who wants to learn more about their spine, how to manage flare-ups and maintain a healthy spine on a daily basis. 

It is a gentle class that will progress as the weeks go on and is suitable for all levels. You will need to be able to get on and off the floor yourself. If you have sciatica as well as low back pain please chat to us prior to commencing the course. If you have any concerns or are not sure if this is the class for you please contact us.

* We are unable to provide individual assessments within this class. If you feel you have a problem that requires a physiotherapy assessment, or you would like a one-to-one yoga session before the course starts, please contact us.  

Yoga Physios LOGO-1.png

Why?
As physiotherapists we are experts in managing back pain. Many scientific studies have confirmed that yoga is an effective tool for reducing back pain. In our practice we often use yoga exercises with patients in addition to manual techniques. Having a series or sequence of yoga positions is often a great way to help people to engage with physiotherapy exercises and manage their own pain. 
Good movement is essential to keeping your spine healthy. Exercise helps to strengthen your muscles, mobilise your joints and keep your bones strong. It also results in the release of your body’s natural pain-killers. The exercises in this class have been specifically picked to help mobilise your back and to strengthen the muscle groups that provide support and maintain good posture. 

What do I wear?
Please wear loose-fitting or stretchy clothes that are comfortable and allow you to move easily. 

How much?
The cost of the 6 week course is £90. Concessionary rates may apply, please contact us for details. A deposit of £40 is required.

When?
Courses starts every 6 weeks and lasts for about 2 hours. At the end of the course you can join our ongoing classes.

How do I book?
Pre-booking is essential. Please contact us via email or telephone to book your place or if you have any questions. Please note that, to keep classes small, we only have ten spaces, so we suggest booking early.  info@theyogaphysios.com   07494 312334

GENTLE YOGA - KATIE

What is it?
The class begins with a gentle but thorough warm up, focusing on breath and mobilising joints and muscles, We spend time exploring varying asana postures and sequences, with precision, softness, and fluidity. We practice pranyama and krias for conscious breathing methods, and close the session with a led relaxation/meditation.

Why?
We practice asana postures, and breath control to build prana (life force) and strengthen the muscles and joints to support our ever changing bodies. For the body; muscles, joints, circulation, hormone balance.
For the mind; concentration, focus, discipline, relaxation, peace. To name but a few! With the intention of taking care, trusting our own intuition, and having respect for our bodies.


Who?
The classes are designed for any level of practice, be it beginner, or advanced practitioner, I have deliberately planned gentle classes to open the doors of yoga up to those who may be rusty, or shy, or a bit out of practice, however it is a drop in class and everyone is welcome. The emphasis in a mixed capability class will be on ones own practice, remembering that each of us have different capabilities, confidence levels, physical limits, even lung capacity! a constant reminder of our uniqueness.
 

What do I wear?
Please wear sports wear or comfortable clothing and no shoes. Bring a jumper, socks and a blanket for relaxation. Also bring water. There will be a few mats available but please bring your own if possible. 

How do I book?
This is a drop in class in STUDIO 1, so theres no need to pre book, however if youd like to pay by the term, or would like any other details, do get in touch by email or  phone; letters2katie@gmail.com  07788 614 732  or we could chat after the class.
