Therapeutic Yoga

Yoga is an ancient, recognised method of exercises aiding health and wellbeing. The word 'yoga' means 'union' and has been practised for centuries. Here are some of the beneficial effects from practising Yoga;

  • Reduces longstanding pain
  • Helps in preparation of body and mind
  • Helps in slowing down the ageing process
  • Helps to recover from injuries.
  • Yoga is a popular form of exercise which helps treating back pain, Arthritis, stress and long-term conditions. The effect of yoga is supported by the growing evidence.

    Yoga helps to control "stress hormone" in our body (known as cortisol). Cortisol is known to suppress our immune system. Too much cortisol in our body is linked to developing longstanding diseases. During periods of poor sleep patterns and stress this hormone can become irregular. In return, this affects our ability to relax and control our body reaction to inflammation and infection. Therapeutic yoga can be tailored to treat physical and emotional problems.
