Yoga here on the Central Coast
We have a valuable team of Yoga Instructors at the Healthy Beings Centre
Did you know that Yoga and Osteopathic treatment are extremely complimentary as they are based on similar principles.
Like Osteopathy, Yoga focuses on preventive healthcare practises and on the body’s ability to heal itself. It doesn’t matter what fitness level you are at, Yoga is a gentle practice that compliments your existing holistic health and well-being goals.
It can teach you greater body awareness and you can work to your own level with gentle postures and techniques to strengthen and improve your body posture.
Yoga (now offered here at our Healthy Beings Centre) is also great for relieving stress and learning to relax via meditation (mind, body and soul) within a casual and friendly small class setting.
“Yoga can be particularly effective for our patients due to the Yoga practice helping people to develop coping skills, reduce stress and reach a more positive outlook on life. We like to provide the best possible chance for our patients to achieve pain relief, recovery, health and well-being at every stage of their life. By offering complimentary healthcare practices such as Yoga and more besides, we can do this.” Shane Caulfield, Osteopath Practitioner.

Yin Yoga is a style of Yoga that targets the body’s connective tissues, such as fascia, ligaments, bones and even joints that are not normally worked effectively in more active styles of Yoga and exercise. The connective tissues have minimal blood supply and are far less elastic than muscles, meaning injury is always a slow recovery.
The practice is suitable for almost any level of student because its approach is slow and gentle, finding a deep opening through softness. When we apply stress in this gentle and sustained way, the tissues respond by opening up, restoring their health and hydration.
This approach, coupled with meditative awareness, can unravel chronic tension patterns lodged in the tissues, and result in a great emotional unfolding. The practice literally changes the constitution of the body’s inner fabric over time, establishing a new pattern through which the mind, body and energy is expressed.
