Gentle movement for people living with pain (yoga inspired)

Ref: C3747616

Each week we’ll repeat a range of similar gentle movements, on the chair waking up and mobilising the feet and ankles, arms and hands, warm ups, rotations, and reaching up. I’ll work towards a few simple standing postures if you are able to do this. I’ll teach you how to ground, breathe, release and how our breath can help in movements. If you are able to, I may spend a little time on the floor, gently rolling, tilting knees, simple gentle twists and becoming aware of how the pelvis moves and tilts.

Course aim

The overall theme is learning to move in a gentle and supportive way for your body through sensing the ground, being aware of the breath and releasing into each position.

Do I need any particular skills or experience?

By the end of the course I should be able to:

  • Have an increased sense of how to ease into moving my body.
  • Generally start to manage moving a little more in my life.
  • Use some breath awareness exercises to reduce stress and help to focus myself.
  • Feel more confident to regularly move through a short sequence of stretches at home.
