Benefits of Clinical Yoga

Yoga itself is a practice that is thought to have existed for 1,000's of years, with the more recent emergence of clinical yoga as an extension of medical based exercise therapies in the last 2 centuries. Yoga therapies can be used to assist in the treatment of many musculoskeletal conditions, especially in recovery and rehabilitation.

Clinical yoga is a practice of yoga postures designed to improve postural awareness and education of the musculoskeletal system, to aid full body movement, flexibility, strength and balance. clinical yoga practitioners have obtained a medical degree prior to yoga training and delivery, which enables focus on your injury, strength, stability and flexibility in order to optimise functional movement.
