Structural Body Work and Yoga
Correct alignment in yoga creates health benefits from practicing the postures. The complex arrangement of muscles, bones, joints and various soft tissues of the body sets the possibilities and limitations for enjoying yoga practice. Our body posture, habits and stress, as well as previous injuries, internal restrictions and imbalances are part of our life.
In a Structural Bodywork treatment, Chris will instructively assess posture and discomfort. This is followed by freeing up (mobilizing) tight areas and reposition muscles and soft tissues into better alignment in order to release restrictions.
This form of treatment can be beneficial for sports (and yoga) injury management, shoulder and neck discomfort, knee and ankle problems, lower back pain, also to generally freeing up areas of the body for improved living and asana practice.
As part of the treatment, movement and posture improvements can be discussed.
