What should I wear to YogaMedics?
You should plan on wearing comfortable clothing that you will be able to easily move around in. It is also recommended that you bring some water to assist you in staying hydrated throughout your session. If you do not have a yoga mat, we have plenty on hand to share.
Will the Exercises be Safe for Me?
If you have experienced traumatic injury, you may be fearful of exercise and avoid movements that cause stress and/or pain. A YogaMedics therapist will help identify your limitations so you can learn to move in new ways– safely and with confidence.
Even with the guidance of a certified YogaMedics therapist, you may experience slight muscle soreness after the first sessions. This is normal and may occur because you are exposing your muscles to new exercises and helping them develop in new ways.
What is a YogaMedics class session like?
You will be guided through a series of “poses,” or exercise positions that will facilitate the free and easy movement of your spine. You will also learn how to use your breath, not only for support in your exercises, but also for the benefit of relaxation. Your YogaMedics therapist will be sure that you are moving properly in and out of the poses and that they are working optimally for you.
You will learn how to develop body awareness– how to become more sensitive to your personal capabilities and/or limitations. Injuries can occur when individuals stretch too far in an action or movement— this can happen both in exercise programs and everyday activities. Your YogaMedics therapist will make sure that you get the benefits of this special exercise program without overdoing it. A more in-tuned self-awareness helps individuals recognize their body’s limits are and how to work with them in everyday life.
