Physio-led Yoga Classes
We are delighted to announce the launch of a new Physio-led Yoga class starting in February 2022. This will be a regular weekly 45-minute early-evening class, led by Physiotherapist Dido Gyles, incorporating a gentle flow and teaching of yoga postures, breathing techniques and relaxation.
As a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist with post graduate training in Therapeutic Yoga, Dido is ideally suited to apply her expert knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics and physiology to ensure that the class is tailored to the individual needs of participants. She has practised yoga for many years and has a keen interest in the benefits that yoga can have on both the mind and the body. This inspired her to develop her therapeutic yoga knowledge and skills further in order to bring it into her clinical practice and more recently to complete an intensive 200hr teacher training program at the Internationally-renowned Suryalila retreat centre in Andalusia, Spain. She is looking forward to bringing yoga to our Woodfield clients.
Will this class be suitable for me?
Class sizes will be small, just a maximum of eight people per session, ensuring the class is safe and accessible to everybody, regardless of age, physical ability or previous yoga experience. Our Physio-led Yoga class is suitable for complete beginners or those with only a little yoga experience. However, participants would need to be able to get on and off the floor independently.
How will physio-led yoga be beneficial for me?
There is an abundance of scientific research which has demonstrated the positive impact that yoga can have on both physical and mental health. Taking part in a regular yoga class can significantly improve muscle strength, flexibility and balance as well as body awareness. It can play an essential role in improving pain, reducing stress and anxiety, improving relaxation, concentration and sleep. Physio-led yoga can be beneficial for everybody including those with persistent pain, long term musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and fibromyalgia. Research has also found that yoga can lower risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease such as blood pressure, obesity and stress.
What do I wear?
Comfortable is the most important thing. However make sure clothing is supportive yet unrestrictive with plenty of stretch so your movement isn’t limited by your clothing.
How much will it cost?
Classes will cost £12 and can be purchased as a block of 6 sessions. However, we are offering all participants an opportunity to try out the sessions with an Introductory Taster pack of 2, for just £12.
