What is Yoga?

Here at The Lansdown Clinic we offer yoga classes specifically to help with back pain and arthritis. Anyone is welcome to join the class regardless of ability; class sizes are kept small to ensure individual requirements are met.

Classes are run by Jay Foo, an experienced Yoga instructor, who primarily teaches Yin Yoga at the clinic. In this calming, earth-bound practice, we slow down and create space for stillness while nourishing joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia. Moving slowly, poses are held for longer periods to target deeper tissues of the body to encourage and enhance energy flow, and unlock and ease tightness held in your body and mind.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, Yoga is proven to help people with arthritis improve many physical and psychological symptoms. Recent scientific studies of people with various types of arthritis show that regular yoga practice can help reduce joint pain, improve joint flexibility and function, and lower stress and tension to promote better sleep.

Yoga can also increase strength in many muscle groups such as the back and abdominals to help the body achieve good posture and movement.

This gentle, Yin Yoga practice is aimed at those suffering with back pain and/or arthritis so is slow paced, relaxing, and poses are held for 3-5 minutes. The class is therefore suitable for complete beginners.
