Weekly Ongoing “Spine and Joint Safe” Public Classes
Yoga Physical Therapy ongoing classes offered at Balancing Owl Yoga in Dublin, OH. Below is my regular schedule, but also check the schedule at Balancing Owl for a few evening classes.
Level 1 Tuesday at 2pm. You can feel safe and gain confidence in both movement and exercise. I take into account aching joints by modifying poses or giving options for a different position; for mobility impairment you can use a chair or wall; for existing conditions like osteoporosis I give specific cuing to decrease your risk of injury. This class follows a curriculum of Yoga Through the Body and each week we focus on a different area of the body in order to also direct mind and spirit.
Level 2 Thursday at 2pm. This class focuses on STRENGTH. I keep all the considerations from the Level 1 class but I increase the intensity of basic poses to build strength. If you have attended the level 1 class or other yoga before, you are probably ready to progress. That’s what we do in physical therapy, progress your exercise program! And you need strength of will each day to stay on the path to improved health.
