The Thursday Morning Restful/Beginners Yoga Class
These yoga classes are physically very gentle, but the yoga is still powerfully effective. The emphasis in these classes is on getting movement back and keeping moving in all the ways we need to in daily life. There is gentle movement, time for rest and healing. The class would suit a physically fit person wanting to slow down and learn about this style of yoga and people recuperating from, for instance, surgery, illness or to assist in living with a condition such as ME/CFS, long covid or chronic pain. It is a safe and supportive environment for exploring where you are physically on the day and doing what is just right for you.
This class is also suitable for people who are simply very stiff and achy or perhaps with a chronic back condition or living with chronic pain. We can have a chat about your situation as part of the registration process to ensure the class is right for what you need.
With a pre class discussion and some assistance to set things up on Zoom, this class may also be suitable for people who are visually impaired.
Please e mail or call me to discuss these classes and their suitability for you.
Yoga and chronic pain and rehabilitation
I believe that understanding how and why we experience pain, can help enormously in reducing all pain, including chronic pain.
I have attended the Neuro Orthopaedic Institutes (NOI) Explain Pain Course. The video talks (at the bottom of this page) by Professor Lorimer Moseley and David Butler of the Noi group are fascinating and funny. They clearly and simply explain about how pain comes about, the role of the brain in pain and changes we can make in our life to reduce all pain.
Sensible yoga postures (perhaps even starting with visualisation, then paced appropriately and practiced with awareness), meditation techniques, breathing practices and yoga nidra deep relaxation can be part of the process of reducing chronic pain in our lives. All the classes I teach, take into consideration the principles talked about in the videos below. The Recuperative yoga class live online on Wednesdays at 2pm (also available on audio recording) is particularly suitable for people experiencing chronic pain, but also some of my weekly classes may be suitable too. Please contact me for more information.
What students say.......
“Yoga is so beneficial for me! Since I had a brain aneurysm my movement wasn’t so good but with the help of Rebecca it has improved no end. I have been going for a few years now and it is both invigorating and relaxing. Long may it continue!” Helen Loy
“Coming to Rebecca’s yoga class has played a vital role in improving my mental and physical well being since recovering from breast cancer. I am uplifted and relaxed after each class and have learnt so many tools for improving my general health and body awareness. I can’t recommend her teaching enough!” Caroline Pudner
These video talks are by Professor Lorimer Moseley and David Butler of the Noi group.
