Yoga

Yoga is an ancient and holistic system for physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Yoga has many physical benefits


The physical benefit achievable through yoga include:

  • Improvements in strength and lean muscle mass

  • Improvements in flexibility and mobility

  • Improvements in balance

  • Injury prevention


Research has also shown that regular practice of Yoga can lead to a reduction in the symptoms associated with chronic low back pain.

The physical benefits will allow the body to thrive more in any life experience or given situation. Be it sitting more comfortably during a movie, reducing the risk of injury for an athlete or for some one to over all have a greater level of well-being.

The positive effect of Yoga extends beyond just the physical benefits. With awareness of breathing and connecting breathe with movement, Yoga has been shown to reduce stress and the release of stress related hormones such as cortisol, reduce anxiety, improve concentration, mental clarity and lead to a calmer mind.

At Darch Physio, we will be taking small groups of gentle Yoga classes in a safe environment lead by one of our experienced Physiotherapists who knows your body.
