Schedule for 2020
25th August – 15th September
Together with the pelvic floor, the abdominal muscles and the lower back the diaphragm provides support during movement.
It is also actively involved in calming the nervous system as it improves breathing when you can consciously expand and relax it.
Moving the Hips :
3rd – 24th November
The hip joints control the direction, speed and quality of the movement of the legs. They act together with the groins. When the hips are stiff, the groins are hard and the lower back becomes rigid.
Learning to move the hips in various directions is accomplished through the standing, seated and supine poses.
Healing Back Pain
Your whole body affects your back. The mechanical function of your spine affects and is affected by alignment, flexibility and strength of many parts of your body.
Approach to back rehabilitation: i) Access posture, strength and flexibility. ii) Learn relaxation techniques, iii) become sensitive to correct movements to prevent pain. iv) Reverse destructive cycles of pain and poor body mechanics.
The Shoulders, Arms and the Neck:
Stiffness in the shoulders incapacitates the arms. If the shoulder blades and collar bones are not efficient they affect being able to keep the trunk erect, resulting in poor posture.
If the head is pulled forward due to poor posture, compression is felt resulting in pain and tension in the neck and throat. The thoracic vertebrae becomes tight and immovable.
The classes include poses which help students relax muscles, stretch the arms and most importantly give more mobility to the upper back.
The Knee Joint:
The knee has three distinct movements, hinge, glide and rotation and it is rare that we use the knees without the hips and ankles.
We look at bringing the knees into structural alignment with the feet, shins, thighs, hips and sacrum and to creating space behind the knee joint. Also, looking at poses to help strengthen the muscles around the knees.
Relaxing the head
When the mind experiences stresses, anxieties, work pressures or emotional upsets, the repercussions are mainly felt in the head.
In Yoga the first step is to relax the body in simple supported poses. Lying down eases the body and with support breathing is improves. When the head rests on a support as well, tension in the face and front brain is relieved. .TThhe head becomes
