Do not accept pain, tight muscles and injuries as normal!
Those aches, pains that seem to come from nowhere? They do have a cause.
Spending prolonged time in chairs, poor sitting and standing posture, using screens, wearing shoes that lift your heels and restrict your feet. The way we spend our days is leaving our bodies literally warped by poor posture. Some muscles over work and get tight, others get lazy or even stop working. These imbalances actually change the structures of the body, putting pressure on joints. Your body can no longer handle loads and impacts, or transmit power efficiently. With these dysfunctions it is impossible to have healthy movement patterns and this creates excess wear and tear so discomfort, pain and injury!
Restore your body
There is another way! Reset how you move and think about movement in our yoga and movement classes. Do more of what you love by learning to maintain your own body and prevent injury. You will re-train your body to restore optimal posture and movement patterns. Practicing these skills, not just in class but everyday, will help you find more balance, comfort and strength in everything you do.
Prevention is better than cure
Your body talks to you! Do you hear it? We spend so much time in our heads we have lost the ability to listen to what it says. Interoception is a lesser-known sense that helps you understand and feel what’s going on inside your body. Yoga and mindful movement improves this skill so you will start to notice slight changes, so you can address issues at the warning light stage. Before pain and injury flare up.
“Fitness is physical & mental. Mental fitness is presence, awareness. Having clarity about my own thoughts.”
Being more self aware, in time, will allow you be more present and feel more in control of your life. You will identify your limiting beliefs and see them differently, so you are able to make more positive choices and take positive action. It has been proven to improve resilience to stress, so you can deal with life’s challenges with more ease.
