  • Yoga has been around for hundreds of years. Yoga
    aims to still the mind. In modern day yoga we are
    most familiar with asanas, a series of physical
    poses used to get us into our bodies and out of
    our heads, thus stilling the mind. In many
    lives today there is constant stimulation from
    computers, mobile phones, TV, driving and
    generally having busy and demanding lives. This
    stimulates the body physically and eventually
    leads to stress and can result in aches and pains
    or injury.

  • Some Useful Poses
  • Child's Pose- Get down onto all fours. Then sit
    hips back onto feet. Stretch arms out in front
    and touch forehead to ground. Stay there for 10
    slow deep breaths. Feel the lungs fill up in your
    mid to lower back.
  • 2. Mountain Pose - standing with good posture for
    2 minutes. Weight through mid foot, knees soft,
    hips soft, pelvis neutral position, sternum
    lifted and lined up with pubic bone, neck long
    and lifted under back of skull, looking straight
    ahead. It helps to be assessed for your
    individual posture by a physiotherapist.

3. Savagsana - relaxation pose at the end of
exercise or yoga lie flat on back, let feet fall
outward, keep neck long, arms resting slightly
out from your side with palms resting up. Stay
there for 5 - 10 minutes observing your
breath. You can use specific poses to return you
body to optimal health. Yoga can unwind your body
out of stressful and injury prone patterns. Yoga
can help you undo patterns that have built up
over time. A home program can be given, and its
more fun than general stretching. For those
already doing yoga, you may be stuck on
particular poses. You can be helped by massage
(hands on treatment) or joint releases.
