Spinal movements in Veterans Yoga, Beaumont Texas

Spinal movements in Veterans Yoga – Beaumont Texas

One of the things that I have noticed in chair yoga classes are similar yoga pose offerings.

I took LVCYT training at the Open Center in New York City, back in October of 2012.  Laskmi Voelker has this set of yoga poses that I use in almost every class I teach, whether it is Beginners Mat class or Chair Yoga Fitness.

The Six Essential Spinal Movements.  It is lovely!

I use them at the beginning and end of class.  They are great!

How to Ease the Back Pain. Shh! You Need to Know. It’s Yoga.

How To Ease Back Pain. You Need To Know. It’s Yoga…

The economy is in the dumps. Gas prices continue to shoot upwards. Your kids may be off from school and driving you up the wall.

beginneryogaoct15th
It’s summer, very nearly fall time. It used to be vacation time. If only you can take a vacation from stress.

Now you can. Right now while you read this post.

Sit up straight and take a deeper breathe than you normally do. Hold it for a second or two, and let the air out with a sigh. Go ahead. No one will notice.

Now, do it again. Take a deeper breathe than before. Hold it for a moment or two and just… let … it … go.

Most people tend to breathe very shallow in their chest. Shallow breathing promotes stress and tension. Deep breathing melts it away.

In a few minutes of deep breathing, you can actually eliminate all stress and tension, lower your blood pressure, and instantly gain a lot more positive attitude.

My name is Gail Pickens-Barger and I teach yoga in Nederland, Texas. Forget what you’ve heard about yoga. You do not have to twist yourself into a pretzel to do yoga. It’s for everyone. Whether you are in shape or not.

And the benefits are immediate.

Come to my Monday night Yoga Class at 6:15 p.m. at Wesley United Methodist Church, starting Monday, October 15th, 2018 and I’ll show you some simple techniques that will eliminate your stress. And with continued yoga practice, your stress will be gone for good.
Come visit my website at yogawithgaileee.com or my blog at yogawithgaileee.blogspot.com or pick up the phone and call me at 409-727-3177.

Beginner  Yoga Series, starts Monday, October 15th at 6:15 pm.  3515 Helena Avenue, Nederland, Texas at Wesley UMC in Nederland, Texas.  Just $10 and you to get you started.

prenatal water yoga Yoga Arthritis and you Yoga for Fibromyalgia

You call it Water, I call it Aqua…its all good….water yoga for ms, fibromyalgia, arthritis and prenatal….

You may well be aware of the many health benefits that can be derived from
practicing Yoga – –

— but did you know that by combining proven yoga exercises with the healing effects of movement in water, medical evidence now lists therapeutic values that range from physiotherapy for the muscles, to increased movement for multiple sclerosis, and fibromyalgia, arthritis, and prenatal patients. This is the practice of Yoga in water, is called, Water Yoga, or more modern terms, Aqua Yoga….

For over five thousand years yoga has been helping people find relief from everyday stress while strengthening and firming. Now, yoga takes you into the pool to ease tense muscles, tone up the internal organs, and improve the flexibility of the body’s joints and ligaments.
….
Every fibromyalgia expert will tell you that exercise is an essential component of any fibromyalgia treatment program. However, most fibromyalgia patients complain––with valid reason––that exercise is difficult and painful. So how can people with fibromyalgia get the exercise they need without causing themselves more pain? Water exercise is one good way.

Benefits of Exercising in Water
Water provides several benefits that make exercise easier, less painful and more effective.

Water’s buoyancy decreases the effects of gravity, displacing 85 percent of your weight. As a result, it takes less effort to move because you don’t have to support your whole weight. The buoyancy of water also takes the weight off of your joints, allowing for more flexibility. The hydrostatic pressure of water reduces joint swelling and inflammation, which makes exercising easier and less painful. Water provides resistance, which helps you increase strength and improve balance. The resistance factor also burns more calories. An exercise done in water can burn twice as many calories as the same exercise done on land. Immersion in water promotes relaxation, reduces muscle fatigue and lessens pain perception.
