Our Yoga Therapy class will be taught by Kinesiologist, Janis Riise, who works as a Certified Exercise Physiologist at LifeMark Health in Saskatoon and completed her yoga therapy training in India.
Janis's approach to teaching yoga is gentle, alignment based and informative, she encourages her students to have a friendly attitude towards themselves when learning and practicing yoga.
This class will be for anyone wishing to learn how well aligned and mindfully practiced yoga poses can help rehabilitate and prevent injuries and help people manage various conditions, including chronic pain.
Meditation, breathing exercises, stress management, yoga philosophy and introducing a yogic lifestyle will be included in the teachings. An emphasis will be placed on deep core muscle recruitment, functional movement patterns and education on appropriate progressions.
This class is suitable for those starting a yoga practice, those wanting to return after an injury or those who simply wish to learn therapeutic techniques they can apply to their current practice.
Two classes are available: 6:00pm - 7:00pm and 7:30pm - 8:30pm
