Yoga is an excellent start to your healing journey, the practice incorporates twists, bends, stretches and arches all these movements do wonders to your spinal flexibility and strength. Although, group classes are more suited for the abled body, if you have an underlying condition err with caution before joining in on a full class of yogis. Have you ever looked at a yoga pose and thought ‘Ouch! If I even attempted that I know I’d be in pain’? You have every right to have reservations, not all poses are made equally!

We’ve had clients on the brink of getting surgery, seeing incredible results with just 6 months of consistent yoga practice his pain was completely gone and he didn’t need to do the spinal fusion which his doctor has previously recommended. He was an investment banker, in his mid 40s, stressed slightly over weight and hunched over his desk most of the time. Needless to say, he was reluctant thinking that his back pain was incurable but as a last ditch attempt before booking his surgery he decided on giving private back care therapy classes at Inspire Yoga a go, he found it challenging but at the same time so rewarding, each week he felt his tension start to release, he felt stronger and could even stand up straighter! 6 months in he was equipped with his own self practice, having understood his body and which parts seize up and which parts compensate he is able to manage any stiffness through simple practices on his own, even when he has to travel for meetings, it was a cure for life!
We work with the 6 axis of movement, primarily focusing on enhancing flexibility around the hips and hamstrings that pull on the lower lumbar and focus on building intrinsic core strength. A lot of the time however, our body is the last resort of manifesting stress, when we feel stress we often ignore it until it flares up and presents itself as pain or illness whereby it calls for immediate attention. Yoga helps you listen to your body more closely so you are able to let go of the stiffness before it translates in to chronic tension, this is done by mindfulness, heightening your awareness and physical embodiment. So much of the time, we live in our minds, unaware of what’s happening in our bodies, yoga helps us check in to the present moment and feel our physical state to address any stress we might be carrying. This process of mindfulness is harnessed by breathwork and meditation, both of which can be very intimidating for a beginner. Our private classes ensure that you feel supported by your teacher to slowly unravel the underlying stress that is causing the pain. This is different for each person, having an expert teacher with you privately can help uncover exactly how your body responds to stress, inspiring you to be compassionate with yourself to be open about your own pressures and the reassurance to let it go as we bring in movements and mindfulness to bring more freedom in your body. This freedom in movement come with a freeing mental framework that makes yoga what it is, a union of body and mind and a deeper connection with yourself to allow tremendous healing to take place.
