Movement Monday – Yoga for Strength and Balance

Mondays: 6:30-7:45 PM

Yoga to Explore, Strengthen, and Revitalize

Wednesdays: 9-10:15 AM

Thursdays: 11 AM-12:15 PM

Classes to help you gain strength, mobility and balance, and have fun. With EmbodyPhysioYoga we bring Yoga and Physiotherapy together to safely address the entire person, not only a body part. EmbodyPhysioYoga is safe for everyone, including those with pelvic floor problems (such as incontinence, prolpase or pressure), arthritis, spine and neck problems, and osteoporosis/osteopenia. ALL abilities and interests are invited. No experience is needed. 

EmbodyPhysioYoga IS for everyone, but sometimes joint problems associated with arthritis, pain that you experience and live with, or recovery from illness make classes less desirable. We attempt to make classes accessible for all participants but sometimes beginning on a one-to-one basis provides you with more tools for success.

Please email us at rebecca@embody-pt.com to find out if the class you’re interested in is right for you, or to schedule an individual EmbodyPhysioYoga Evaluation and Session.

Workshops:

Pregnancy, Labor Prep, & Post-baby Recovery Workshop January 25, 12-2:30 PM

Pregnancy is a time of continuous change in your body. The changes do not stop after giving birth, as your body begins to recover while you are still caring for your newborn. Many new moms find that the do not have time for themselves and their recovery, but that they have MANY questions.  Our goal is to provide you with information and resources to assist you during your pregnancy and early recovery after baby!  Whether your first or fourth pregnancy, this will be helpful!  Partners are welcome to attend.

This workshop will cover:

                -Changes in your body, core, and pelvic floor during pregnancy

                -Changes in your spine, pelvis, and posture. Pain and discomfort in the spine, hips, and legs will be discussed and general tips for management offered and practiced (this is not a class for treating individual concerns. Please contact us if pain is limiting you).

                -pelvic floor anatomy, changes during labor and delivery

                -Breath and Pelvic floor management techniques and exercises during pregnancy and for early post-partum days

                -Incontinence/leakage and constipation during pregnancy and after.

                -Supports during pregnancy and after

                -exercise during pregnancy and post-partum.

                -Lifting and movement after the baby.

Yes, we will discuss Diastasis (DRA) and pelvic floor prolapse. Let’s take some of the fear away!!

We will practice breath, pelvic floor engagement, spinal motion, postures for sit/stand/lift and exercise and more.

This workshop will be offered every 2 months.

If you have questions, please contact rebecca@embody-pt.com
