Physio Yoga 1:1
What is Yoga and Yoga therapy?
Yoga is a system of physical exercises and breathing control, which are designed to increase both strength and stability while adopting specific bodily postures. There is also an emphasis on focusing the mind.
Yoga techniques incorporate exercise components which are also commonly used in physiotherapy treatment and rehabilitation. These include active stretching, muscle strengthening in functional positions and movement of the whole body through full muscle and joint ranges. Combining yoga poses with knowledge of anatomy and injury can therefore be used to rehabilitate from injury and to maintain optimal musculoskeletal health, in order to prevent injury or reoccurrence.
