24th June 2017 Say NO to Lower Back Pain
We get up and sit down to have a coffee and breakfast then out to the car to sit down and drive to work.
We get to work and most of us sit down at their desk where they will stay most of the morning until they get up to have lunch.
We also know it is better to sit whilst you eat lunch, and then we return to the office to sit all afternoon until we sit back in the care or train to get home. Exhausted after a long day we sit down to eat our evening meal and the sit back on the comfy lounge to watch our favourite TV show.
That’s a lot of sitting.
Now if we look at it from an anatomical standpoint these hours of sitting will shorten the hamstring and the illiopsoas muscles putting strain on the strain on the lower back.
Most of us do not engage our core muscles when sitting so this also reflects a weakness into the back.
But I’m an Athlete, and My Back Still Hurts
Many of us do not complete these sitting marathons every day, we play sport and workout, so why the lower back pain? Most weight-bearing sport or exercise that involves running, jumping, or rapid dynamic movements produces tension on the lower back. When these activities are repeated over time without balanced core strength and the stretching and releasing these tight muscles, overuse injuries are common.
This Remedial Yoga Therapy workshop will have a positive effect on athletes and couch potatoes alike. Learn how to stretch properly without over straining and how to build core muscles strength that will aid the stability of your spine and hips – for work, rest and play.
Yoga may not be the first thing that comes to mind when your are sinking into an afternoon slump or waking up bleary-eyed after a late night.
But movement and deep breathing might whilst doing an invigorating Sun Salutation or Standing Postures could be just what you need to help fight fatigue.
Because we know that yoga is an excellent natural energy-booster.
Yoga works to improve oxygen levels and unblocking energy along the spine. It bring what the yogis call prana, or ‘life force,’ into the back and all these areas of the body through breath and movement.
It awakes the circulatory system and with it the nervous system — basically bringing new energy and life into the body.
Active poses that stimulate the blood flow through the body can help combat fatigue and boost feelings of vitality, and might also help to counter some of the effects of long periods of sitting.
This Remedial Yoga Workshop will work to stretch out back and leg muscles, elongating the spine, it energising the the nervous system. It will incorporate back bends that will work to strengthen you back but also open up chest muscles, allowing the lungs to work freely. So for a healthy heart and increased O2 levels…
Common digestive problems include heartburn/GERD, IBD, and IBS. Symptoms may include bloating, diarrhoea, gas, stomach pain, and stomach cramps.
Treatment often includes a combination of medication and lifestyle changes, but you can take more control of your body and the way it digests food with yoga.
This Remedial Yoga Therapy workshop will work through specialised digestive moves to get things moving at optimal pace, allowing for better absorption and metabolism.
Learn a few ‘take home’ moves that will help relieve discomfort as well, giving you the tools you need to keep your digestion healthy and happy. There will also be discussion on foods that aid digestion and food combining techniques that really work, so
The hip joint is a strong joint that is designed for repeated motion, bearing weight and a fair amount of wear and tear. It is the largest ball-and-socket joint in the body and allows for fluid movement and standing.
Whether you are getting up out of a chair or going for a jog, whenever you use the hip a cushion of cartilage helps prevent friction as the hip bone moves in its socket.
Despite its size and relative durability, the hip joint isn’t indestructible. With age and use, the cartilage can wear down or become damaged. The muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused, or become imbalanced, all of which can lead to aches and often sharp pain in the hip.
If you would like to improve the health of your hips this Remedial Yoga Therapy workshop will give you the yoga tools you need to achieve hip pain relief.
Pelvic floor muscle fitness is affected by a number of things including:
not keeping them active or over working them
being pregnant and having babies
a history of back pain
ongoing constipation and straining to empty the bowels
being overweight, obese or having a body mass index (BMI) over 25
heavy lifting (e.g. at work or the gym)
a chronic cough or sneeze, including those linked to asthma, smoking or hayfever
previous injury to the pelvic region (e.g. a fall, surgery or pelvic radiotherapy), and
Although it is hidden from view, your pelvic floor muscles can be consciously controlled and therefore trained, much like your arm, leg or abdominal (tummy) muscles.
This Remedial Yoga Therapy workshop will show you how strengthening your pelvic floor muscles will help you to actively support your bladder and bowel and often reduce lower back pain.
We will also give you a number of ‘take home’ exercises because, just like any other muscles in your body, your pelvic floor muscles will become stronger with a regular exercise program. This workshop is for both men and women.
Somewhere along the line you may have decided that yoga is not for you. You have heard how great it is for stress management, but hey, you can barely touch your toes.
And meditate? Last time you tried it you got the giggles cause someone had fallen asleep and was snoring. Not really the Zen thing to do, but more common that you think.
Remedial Yoga Therapy is not about how well you can stand on your head or twist your body into a human pretzel. It is about working out what your body can actually do. If you are focused on moving, breathing and getting the right feeling then there is no time to think about the deadline at work or how you are going to juggle the kids sport pickups.
Through specialised movements and controlled breathing exercises remedial yoga will help reduce stress and tension, increased strength, balance and flexibility, stability blood pressure and reduced cortisol levels.
Cortisol is often referred to as the stress hormone. Scientists have known for years that elevated cortisol levels: interfere with learning and memory, lower immune function and bone density, increase weight gain, blood pressure, cholesterol, heart disease.
So why wait – Stress relief is not a myth.
