Who is Yoga suitable for?
Yoga is suitable for all ages and abilities but is particularly of use to those individuals with any of the following conditions:
Joint Problems – Mobilisation of the joints releases synovial fluid, helping to lubricate and nourish joints. Weight bearing exercise helps to increase bone density
Back and Neck Problems – Yoga postures gently stretch, tone and mobilise muscles and joints, helping to reduce and manage pain
Mental Health – Insomnia, stress, anxiety, depression, mood swings – deep breathing and meditation helps to induce relaxation, inner peace and calm
