Yoga

Our yoga & pilates instructor and Physiotherapist, Laura Billinghay runs 1-to-1 yoga classes at our clinic for individuals and small groups of up to 3 people.   She discusses who yoga would benefit:

' Yoga is actually most helpful for those people who think they could never do a yoga class.  Often people think about yoga and imagine someone very flexible, folding themselves into something that resembles a pretzel.  This kind of yoga definitely exists but I love to teach beginners, people with body concerns, people who don't want to join a big class, or people who just prefer to experience the benefits of individual tuition.

Yoga is helpful if you have been advised by a therapist or doctor that you need to stretch.  It's also really helpful if you run, cycle or do active sport alot. If you have a very stressful lifestyle with little time to invest in yourself, then yoga is exactly what you need in your life.

I trained as a Physiotherapist before I trained as a yoga teacher, and so I teach with all my anatomy knowledge in mind.  I see yoga make dramatic changes to peoples' muscle length and general mobility.  I do however recognise the excellent effects of mindfulness and breathing techniques which are known to reduce pain, increase quality of sleep, reduce blood pressure and heart rate, improve athletic performance and prevent recurrence of injury.

If you are very flexible already, I would usually recommend pilates, but don't worry if you are unsure, we can help you make that decision.  If you are in pain, if your joints feel stiff and your muscle feels tight, if you struggle to relax or you just want to keep your body feeling young then flexibility is the key, and I will help you achieve that.'

Laura works at The StoneHouse Clinic on Mondays and Thursdays.  If you are interested in booking a 1-to-1 yoga class with her then please contact us by using the details found by clicking here.
