Whilst yoga practice in general has health benefits, yoga therapy involves employing a variety of individualised yoga techniques aimed at improving a health issue, managing a chronic condition (e.g. chronic pain, arthritis), or to ease a natural process, such as menopause. Among the yogic tools used therapeutically are asana (physical postures), pranayama (breath work), meditation, mindfulness, relaxation, and lifestyle and dietary advice.
Yoga therapy is provided as one-to-one consultation, in a similar way to many other modalities of health and well-being such as massage therapy, physiotherapy and often in consultation with your other health care provider.
Jeni runs a weekly pre-natal & women’s health yoga class every Thursday in association with the Traralgon Yoga Studio at Innersense Wellbeing. Classes start at 4:30pm finishing at 5:45pm and the cost is $15 per class. Please call Jeni on 0412 616 631 to confirm your attendance.
Each class includes yoga postures (asanas), as well as yogic breathing
practices (pranayama) and the nourishing practice of Yoga Nidra and/or
meditation. By connecting with the cycles of life (moon cycle,
pregnancy, seasons & stages of life) women can enjoy more energy,
clearer mind and deeper emotional understanding. The yoga practices can be helpful in managing stress and anxiety, as well as balancing the physical and mental energies.
The classes allow women to support the development and strengthening of their body, mind, and spirit during and after pregnancy; and enhance the connection with their growing baby. The practices positively impact on the quality of pregnancy and birth experience.
There is a beginning body of research evidence that a prenatal yoga program provides benefits during pregnancy, giving birth, and on birth outcomes. This includes improvements in psychological domains during pregnancy and birth (e.g. quality of life and self-efficacy), for physical and pain measures during birthing (e.g. pain and discomfort), and on birth variables (e.g. birth weight and number of preterm births) (see Curtis, Weinrib & Katz, 2012; Motha, in Lee & Attwood, 2013; Mayo Clinic).
Whilst the general Satyananda classes provide adaptations for pregnant women, prenatal yoga classes allow you to meet other pregnant women who can relate with you as you experience the wonder of the life growing within you and the transition of becoming a mother.
