Welcome to the next level of well-being and fitness, transformation by Yoga
1. Less stress? Yes and No
STRESS MANAGEMENT – The cause of most illnesses.
Change your response to stress as we strengthen your nervous system.
Yoga helps to lower the levels of the stress hormone, cortisol and creates a sharp and awake mind ready to conquer the life lessons ahead.
Other related benefits include weight loss, lower blood pressure and heart rate,
improving digestion and boosting the immune system as well as easing symptoms of conditions such as anxiety, depression, fatigue, asthma and insomnia.
Does it reduce the stress that you encounter in daily life? NO.
2. A healthy happy body?
PAIN MANAGEMENT – The first step to healing.
Move correctly and Arthritis & Co will be kept at bay.
Studies have demonstrated that practising yoga asanas (postures), meditation or a combination of the two regularly, reduces pain.
Postural alignment to remove or reduce unneeded distress on joints and muscles.
Acknowledging the pain rather than just numbing it to find clues to remove its causes.
Make your body and mind your friends in the search for balance.
Will once a week Yoga Therapy take my pain away forever ? NO most likely not.
It is a self-home practice that makes all the difference after we have found your routine and you have learned to do do it correctly.
3. The feeling of rejuvenation, Yes?
BREATHWORK – Oxygen is vital and often undervalued. (breathe to survive vs oxygenation)
ENERGY WORK – Have your tanks with life force energy (aligned flow)
BODYWORK – Release tension out of fascia and muscles (Melt)
Poor breathing puts strain on every bodily function. Exploring Breath work is very inspiring and and rejuvenating.
Yoga teaches people how to breathe effectively to increase the amount of oxygen available to the body.
Less known is the role of breathing to the nervous system.
Pranayama ( breath control ) is often more effective then meditation in matters of depression, physical tension, anxiety and stress control.
This is often where the magical journey begins.
4. Feeling less of a stiffy? Yes
INCREASES YOUR FLEXIBILITY? Yes – Hydration plays a key role.
You are as old as your spine is flexible.
Yoga helps to improve flexibility and mobility, increasing healthy range of movement and reducing aches and pains.
Many people can’t touch their toes during their first yoga classes. Gradually they begin to use the correct technique and muscles.
Over time, the ligaments, tendons and muscles align and lengthen, increasing elasticity and nourishment of the cells.
Yoga also helps to improve body alignment through good neuro pathway connections, resulting in better posture and helping to relieve back, neck, joint and muscle problems.
If you know how your body should work its easy to change habits picked up through life.
5. Power when you need it, without throwing your back out?
INCREASES YOUR STRENGTH? Yes – surprising how it does give you so much more control back.
Control and recruitment of muscle is important – learn to use all muscles optimally.
Yoga Muscles are lean, intelligent muscles not bulky and disconnected.
Yoga asanas (postures) aim to use every muscle in the body, helping to increase strength literally from head to toe.
And, while these postures strengthen the body, they also provide an additional benefit of helping to relieve muscular tension rather than leaving you aching with lactic acid.
A fully supported joint and muscle is a happy one. A hand full of connections can carry more than any single isolated muscle ever will.
6.Loving the You that greats you in the mirror? Yes – It’s a journey EFT is a great addition here.
WEIGHT LOSS MANAGEMENT – Let’s look at the reason first maybe we need some extra tools here.
The biggest issue can be hormone balance, dehydration or intolerances.
Yoga (even less vigorous styles) can aid weight loss and control efforts by balancing hormone levels as well as burning excess calories and reducing stress.
Yoga detoxifies and by adding some fine natural herbs it clears your body and pallet, therefore Yoga encourages healthy eating habits and provides a heightened sense of well being and self esteem.
Yoga is all about upgrading instead of depriving no mad diet, just sustainable change for the better.
7.A healthy happy heart? Yes for sure in more ways than you might think!
IMPROVED CIRCULATION – No.1 killer in Scotland is heart disease.
Yoga and HeartMath are great buddies finally there are studies that your happiness changes your DNA and therefore even inherited diseases.
Yoga is a great cardiovascular option for any person not keen to ware down their joints.
Yoga helps to improve circulation through poses and breathing more efficiently, moving oxygenated blood to the body’s cells.
It works by massaging the internal organs and detoxifying, freeing vital organs of harmful toxins.
Yoga benefits by lowering resting heart rate, increasing endurance and improving oxygen uptake during exercise.
Its the mix of breathing techniques and postures that do the trick.
Can Yoga mend a broken heart? Maybe, we believe that only a open heart has the power to grow and forgive.
8.Loads of energy to do the things you want to do?
INCREASE ENERGY? Yes, by looking at why you procrastinate
Bringing your goal back into focus – no-nonsense approach.
Power is in the Now.Stop giving your energy to the past or the future or what you are not.
Yoga helps us to focus on the present, to become more aware and to help create mind and body health.
It opens the way to improved concentration, coordination, reaction time and memory, with increased energy levels its easy to walk towards a bright future.
Perfect answer for procrastination, depression and hormone imbalances.
9. Peace of mind when you have time to relax?
INNER PEACE – resulting in outer peace – everyone benefits.
Learn to see the bigger picture, put life in perspective and keep breathing through the hard times. Learn about keeping your inner circle separate from the worlds issues. Movement as well as breathing and meditation create a place of inner calm, a safe haven to recharge. If you can stand tall in your power all problems seem smaller and easier to handle.
10. A science that’s not wasting your time?
NEVER GOES OUT OF FASHION – 5000 years of knowledge, research science still leave the modern doctors baffled.
These Ayurvedic Physicians knew things thousands of years back that are now adopted as cutting edge medicine. Body, Mind and Breath are connected and interact as one – healing lies in the lap of the trinity. There are different styles popping up all over, new is not always best and often its more fashion than Yoga. All styles offer a door in, and invite you to learn more when you are ready.
