6 Week Joint Pain Course

Yoga is a practice that comes in many different forms, and includes asanas (poses), breathing techniques and meditation. It started in ancient India and has been a way to boost physical and mental health for 5,000 years.

In fact, yoga is proven to help people with arthritis improve many physical symptoms like pain and stiffness, and psychological issues like stress and anxiety. People with various types of arthritis who practice yoga regularly can reduce joint pain, improve joint flexibility and function, and lower stress and tension to promote better sleep.

Joint pain may arise from conditions, injuries, or inflammation, while muscular pain may be a result of stress, tension or physical strain. Understanding your pain will help you to know your limits and understand which areas of your body may need a bit of extra strength.

Yoga is a great way to enhance your flexibility and range of motion. Yoga asanas, or postures, gently stretch the muscles surrounding the joints. This increased flexibility helps to alleviate stiffness and may improve overall joint mobility.

Studies suggest that reducing inflammation and local circulation are other benefits often found when practicing yoga on a regular basis. Specific yoga poses, such as twists and inversions, stimulate local blood flow, promoting the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to certain areas of the body.

Many people use yoga as a method to strengthen muscles and support joints. Engaging in various yoga poses involves activating different muscle groups, which lead to muscle strength and stability. Stronger muscles provide better support for joints, reducing strain and helping to minimise pain.

I have created a six week course to help you create a mind-body connection using Yoga’s emphasis on introspective thought – pinpointing the sources of pain or anxiety and learning to relax them.

Your instructor; My name is Lisa Roy, I am a qualified Bowen Therapist, Pilates and Yoga Teacher and Gp Exercise Referral Specialist. Prior to this I was a registered nurse for many years so I have a wealth of experience understanding chronic health conditions and how these may affect your life.

I now help people to age better, rebalance their health and live a more fulfilling life. I believe in a holistic approach to health by making choices that become part of your lifestyle. This involves exercise, good nutrition, rest, repairing and stress management. I reckon the focus should be on how you feel not how you look. So I want to help people feel fabulous from the inside out by moving better, reducing those aches and pains, increasing flexibility, working on that strength and by getting some much needed me time
