The classes will encompass a series of postures, meditation, breathing exercises . But every class is different and that is the fun of it! Each class is personal and suited to individual strengths and limitations, to accommodate a mixed ability..

At Physio Plus, yoga  classes are taught based upon a classical approach together with a contemporary method. A focus on structural alignment is key to yoga and facilitates better performance in a wide range of sports. But most importantly, it is how great it makes you feel! All classes are booked in blocks of 6 weeks, a trial class may be arranged (if availability allows)by contacting reception on 02891871701

 

Pregnancy Yoga classes

Pregnancy Yoga class on a Tuesday at 1930

Yoga is suitable for all stages of pregnancy from 14 weeks onward and will help you prepare physically, mentally and emotionally for labour and motherhood.  It can also be a great way to meet other pregnant women in various stages of pregnancy.

Yoga postures and breathing techniques can help to:

  • Increase your confidence in an otherwise uncontrollable situation
  • Build confidence in your ability to give birth
  • Improve your energy levels
  • Enhance relaxation and feelings of well-being
  • Improve your self-image

Yoga can help alleviate many of the discomforts of pregnancy including:

  • Back pains
  • Swollen ankles
  • Heartburn and indigestion
  • Poor sleep
  • Varicose veins

 

What’s the difference between Pilates and Yoga?

Both Pilates and yoga focus on developing strength, balance, flexibility, posture and good breathing technique. With its emphasis on the unity between the mind and body, yoga has a more spiritual side that Pilates does not. The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase the strength and flexibility of the whole body) and breathing.

Pilates also uses breathing, but its exercises focus much more on precise movements to target specific parts of the body. The best Pilates classes are in small groups where the teacher can develop programmes to suit each person’s strengths and weaknesses.
