What is Yoga?
The Totalcare Clinic run Yoga classes at our practice location in Botley Southampton. Courses vary in length but are on average 6 weeks in duration; each class is one hour long. Numbers are limited to between 8 in a class in order to achieve the best results for the client.
Yoga is lots of things and takes on lots of forms.
So to answer this question, this is what you can expect from the Yoga classes and courses at the Totalcare Clinic. Our Yoga classes are 60 – 75 minutes long and a made up of series of postures and poses that strengthen the body, balance the mind and soothe the spirit.
Your Yoga classes are about taking time out to look after yourself , indulge in some ‘me time’ and give your body what it sorely needs after the stresses and strains of everyday life. After a gentle warm-up, we do a few Sun Salutations which brings in a cardiovascular element to burn calories, focus the mind and heat the body. Once warm, standing poses strengthen, tone and shape the body whilst building a courageous mind.
As the body heat builds we add twisting postures and balancing poses which detoxify the body and strengthen the core. Then we slow it down, add some back strengthening, stretching and a good long relaxation!
The classes and courses at The Totalcare Clinic are limited in numbers so that your Yoga teacher can really get to know you and your body. The Yoga taught at the studio is a truly holistic therapy and tailored to each student so that any particular conditions/injuries can be addressed. You will see your Yoga practice develop quickly as you experience the various benefits of a tailored class.
