PHYSIO-YOGA

Yoga is a perfect form of low-impact exercise for people who are dealing with persistent pain or recovering from injury because it safely improves mobility, strength, balance, postural alignment and overall health and wellbeing.

Yoga enables you to stretch yourself both physically and personally. It empowers you to tune into and listen to your body and what it needs.

Yoga acknowledges that your body, your emotional state and your thinking all interact and affect each other.

“I love yoga because over the years it’s helped me to recover from major injuries and continue to challenge my body without pain. Since adopting a regular yoga practice, I move with more comfort, fitness and enjoyment than I had before” A-J

Who can Physio-Yoga help?

 

Among other benefits, regular Physio-Yoga can help improve your:

 

  • Flexibility, balance and posture
  • Strength and stability
  • Biomechanics and movement patterns
  • Injury rehabilitation
  • Living with a better relationship with pain
  • Ability to relax and cope with stress
  • Mental clarity
  • Breathing
  • Sports performance

How it works

 

The Physio Yoga Clinic offers group yoga classes and one-on-one individualised yoga practices. Both options may incorporate:

 

  • Physical poses known as Asanas to enhance flexibility, strength, balance, postural alignment and relaxation. The benefits of these poses extend beyond your musculoskeletal system to your nervous, cardiovascular, lymphatic and digestive systems
  • Breathwork, also known as pranayama, usually used to calm the mind and body
  • Meditation to help calm your mind and promote muscle relaxation and improved sleep. Meditation can ultimately help you experience more joy and contentment, and develop a less reactive state of mind. It’s best practiced under supervision when you’re starting out
  • Ayurveda (the sister science of Yoga), in which we assess your physical and mental constitution or “Dosha” to determine the optimal daily routines, nutrition, yoga poses, philosophies and lifestyle for your wellbeing

What is Physio-Yoga Therapy?

 

It can be said that all Yoga is therapeutic.

Physio Yoga Therapy is focused on injury rehabilitation and whole-body well-being. It will educate you about your anatomy, how your body works, and ultimately empower you to take care of yourself.

It is tailor-made to your individual needs – assessed by a physiotherapist – yoga teacher.

 

It’s a professional therapeutic modality where the principles and practices of Yoga are used to empower and support you in managing your own health. As a physiotherapist, I will professionally assess individual needs.

 

With its focus on addressing muscular and alignment imbalances, and overcoming discomfort, one-on-one Physio-Yoga is one of my favourite tools for helping clients improve their physical health and wellbeing. We’re at our best when our bodies and minds are operating in a state of harmony.

Individual Physio-Yoga

 

Physio-Yoga caters for the needs of people with injuries or persistent physical problems not usually addressed in a group class.

Individual Physio-Yoga facilitates a deeper body awareness and is ideal for those recovering from injuries, or who are feeling less flexibility or strength as the years pass. (Despite what you may have heard, aches, pains and stiffness do NOT have to be part of getting older!)

 

One-on-one Yoga prescribes specific poses for improving posture, flexibility and strength. It includes breathing practices for relaxation and mindfulness or meditation to suit your personal needs. Yoga is more than just a type of exercise – it’s a practice that gives benefits of healing that are both preventative and restorative. It can help relieve a number of health issues. Yoga was traditionally taught one-on-one. Individual yoga tuition remains the gold standard when it comes to practicing yoga.

 

Therapeutic Yoga is “The use of the techniques of yoga to create, stimulate, and maintain an optimum state of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health” Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D. 

 

 

As a result of being more individualised, you’ll often see more rapid gains from one-on-one yoga. It enables you to better learn about your body and mind, while extending and deepening your yoga practice.

 

An initial visit with the physiotherapist – yoga teacher may include a thorough assessment of your posture and alignment, muscular strength and balance, history of injury or injuries, and general health and wellbeing.

We take into account every angle for your well-being – physical, mental, emotional and lifestyle, giving us a solid platform to develop your yoga practice from.
