Remedial Yoga

Remedial Yoga 

Tuesdays: 5.00 p.m. – 6.15 p.m.

The Remedial class is open to students of all ages and fitness levels.  The class is slow paced as a reult of making use of props. The props assist in aiding problems such as back ache, tight shoulders and hips and sore knees.

Student issues will largely guide the content of the class with structural, functional and postural conditions addressed.

In the Remedial class students initially rest in supported, passive poses to promote postural alignment. After muscles are relaxed, more active, but modified poses are performed. 

Students build up confidence, despite weakness, acute or chronic pain or problematic areas, when practicing yoga with supports.
