Therapeutic Yoga for Stress and Burnout
Time & Location
About the Event
This 4 week course is specially designed to benefit people who need or choose to adopt a more therapeutic approach to yoga. Therapeutic Yoga does not emphasise adopting and perfecting a particular shape with your body, so you do not have to be fit or flexible to do this class. Indeed, recent research is showing that most joint issues are being caused by over flexibility rather than tight or strong muscles.
Therapeutic Yoga addresses sensory motor amnesia. Most people have some muscles in their bodies that have forgotten how to fire up, and some muscles that have forgotten how to relax. Therapeutic Yoga is a somatic enquiry; inviting you to notice the sensations that you are feeling in your body whilst doing small movements with great attention. If it is appropriate to the people in the room, these movements are often built up into recognisable yoga postures or more complex movement patterns.
By noticing which muscles are firing up enthusiastically, and which muscles are less inclined to engage, we can strengthen what needs to be strengthened, so that the over enthusiastic muscles feel supported in their desire to relax; bringing the body back to a healthy balance.
