Weekly Classes

 

“Yoga enables me to turn my head. I was unable to do that for a very long time. I have arthritis and it helps tremendously with mobility and flexibility. I also have a very stressful job and I am finding Joanne’s relaxation techniques becoming increasingly helpful.

 

I could go on and on about the benefits not just of yoga but yoga with you!!! I have had a teacher that was not great. You don’t realize the difference sometimes until you come across someone exceptional like Joanne. The difference is like night and day.” Linda Graham

 

Weekly Classes

  I offer a safe, gradual and gentle approach to improving a body condition from the inside out.

  I can help you to:

 

  • reclaim muscle tone and height in a gentle and gradual way

  • improve functional movement, posture and flexibility

  • become more pro-active with your self-care

  • continue to care for yourself after completing a physiotherapy treatment plan

  • learn how to relax, feel better

  • accelerate healing. Yoga therapy complements manual therapies like massage, osteopathy & chiropractic care.

  • adjust the yoga exercises to maintain healthy posture and avoid unnecessary injury.

  • learn an evidenced-based program for low back pain

 

  Classes are for you if you want to improve a body condition like:

  • Mild low back, neck and/or shoulder pain.

  • Mild arthritis, or you are stiff/sore and want a gradual approach to strengthening and stretching.

  • Mild forms of: sciatica, scoliosis, arthritis, degenerative disc.

 

  • And if you are over 50.

  • May of had a hip or knee replacement.

  • You have enough mobility to lay down on a mat and come up to standing on your own. 

   

     NOTE: This is not chair yoga but chairs are sometimes used for sitting exercises and stability when standing.

I'd like to join a class at the studio

PLEASE NOTE:

I'm now taking names to add a class in October on Wednesdays at 10am & 4pm and Fridays at 10am.

Please send me an email if you're interested. Classes are $208 for 8 weeks, one class/week. 

Limit of 3 students. Masks are worn when entering and leaving the studio but not on the mat during practice. 

Mobility issues & pain

Exercises are done laying on the floor and standing so a certain degree of mobility and strength is required to get up or down on your own. Consider private classes with Joanne if mobility and pain is a concern for you. 

What to Expect in a Class:

Classes include somatic movements and a therapeutic approach to classic yoga postures that produce the following outcome:

  • Restores structural symmetry

  • Promotes circulation

  • Releases tension and reduces pain

  • Re-establishes healthy neuro-muscular patterns

  • Reduces inflammation and loosens up chronic tightness

  • Re-educates your body so that it moves more efficiently

  • Will not make a pre-existing condition worse

  • Calms the nervous system and quiets the mind

  • Compassionate and caring attention from me

 

Depending on the needs of the individuals in the class we also work on gentle strengtheners and proper posture when sitting, bending, lifting and walking.
