Yoga Therapy

Recent research out by some of the top professionals in the field of physiotherapy and chronic pain has strongly suggested that much of our current low back pain epidemic can be linked to lifestyle; not only too much sitting, but also high levels of stress and our perception that "back pain" is serious pain. On top of that we are constantly told to sit up straight, work our "core's" and that back pain is all about poor posture and weak muscles.

However too much muscle tone, and in particular an inabillity to ever relax that tone, is being shown to be a major contributer to low back pain. Learning to move in better patterns and to relax our muscles is vital.

In order to help clients learn to relax and move in better patterns, we are pleased to introduce yoga classes. Our yoga classes will have a maximum of 10 people, so individual attention can be given to each participant.

Benefits of Yoga:
- Increase muscle strength and length
- Increase balance
- Focus on breath, energy and vitality
- Stress Management
- Pain management and coping strategies
- Self-care
- Holistic approach to mind and body wellness
Classes are $17 per class on a casual basis or $15 per class if booked as a block (block of 10).

Class:
Thursday 9:30 - 10:30am
