Assisted Yoga (Yoga Therapy) is a combination of aided stretches, movement, massage and talk to bring the mind, body and spirit back into balance. We look at the whole picture: pranyama (breathing), posture, areas of over use and under use, balance, co-ordination, range of motion and lifestyle factors: stress levels, nutrition, sleep, and mindset.
Through hands on methods such as myofascial release, resistance stretching and active release techniques we mobilize areas of limited mobility and stretch and release connective tissues and strengthen areas of weakness and instabilty through muscle conditioning.
Excellent for maintaining and improving overall flexibilty for life in general and especially to balance out and improve those activities you do often or want to do more with no pain: golfing, cycling, running etc.
'I've had back and nerve pain that never went away after an accident and still no firm diagnosis but after working with Penny for just a couple of sessions my pain decreased and I could do more things during the day. I tell all my friends she's the 'back whisperer'. Nicole, Parksville
