Here at Connected Chiropractic, we believe that good movement can be life changing. Quality chiropractic care can open the door to many different types of movement and exercise, but one of our personal favourites is Yoga. There are many benefits of yoga that contribute to a healthy lifestyle.
So what are the benefits of yoga?
Our one-to-one Yoga sessions are tailored to your body, skillset, and ability, so that you can find movement that really works for you. Whether you’re a complete beginner or a progressing intermediate, find a way to connect breath, mind, and body. We are also offering online classes if you’d prefer to dip your toe in the water from the comfort of your own living room.
Yoga for the mind as well as the body
Yoga can help in tackling a variety of mental health issues, such as symptoms of anxiety and depression. Have you heard of the fight-or-flight response? This is what happens when there is too much cortisol in the body. Yoga and yogic breathing have been shown to lower cortisol levels, and in turn, calm your nervous system. The practice can also increase serotonin levels in the brain which can help people struggling with depression.

The ultimate movement for bone health
Weight-bearing exercise is one of the best ways to prevent challenges such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis, two of the main reasons people seek our chiropractic services. It has also been shown to provide relief from chronic back-pain and improve posture.
Keep the body moving, inside and out
Do you suffer from digestion problems such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome? Yoga might be just the thing for you. The practice aids in digestion, and can even prevent issues such as ulcers and constipation.
Can yoga stop you from getting the cold or flu? It sounds too good to be true, but through increasing circulation and draining our lymph nodes, Yoga has been found to boost our immunity against illnesses and viruses.
Increase your mobility and keep your body moving from the inside.
