Yoga is an ancient philosophy or way of life for many people around the world.
There are said to be 8 limbs of yoga; social attitudes, care for ourselves, postures, breathing, withdrawal of senses, concentration, meditation, bliss.
As a physiotherapist it was the yoga postures and the benefits to the physical body and injury that drew me to yoga teacher training but I am slowly appreciating and finding benefits from exploring the other limbs too.
The aim of YOUtherapies’ phYsiOGA classes are to introduce you mainly to the physical part of the practice, that is the ásana practice, with an emphasis on the breathing and staying focussed and present mentally. Yinyása yoga is the style taught, which is a fairly strong practice with plenty of standing work, moving with the pace of your breath. All of our phYsiOGA classes finish with some meditation, relaxation and letting go.
