What is PhysioYoga?


PhysioYoga is a practice that combines the principles of physiotherapy and yoga to help improve physical health and overall well-being. This approach to healthcare has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its holistic approach to healing and its ability to treat a wide range of conditions. Whether you are dealing with chronic pain, recovering from an injury, or simply looking to improve your physical fitness, PhysioYoga can help.

The practice of PhysioYoga is based on the idea that the body is a complex system that requires balance and harmony to function properly. This approach to healthcare focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of physical problems rather than simply treating the symptoms. By combining the principles of physiotherapy and yoga, PhysioYoga practitioners are able to provide a comprehensive approach to healing that addresses both the physical and mental aspects of health.

With its focus on holistic healing and its ability to treat a wide range of conditions, PhysioYoga is quickly becoming one of the most popular approaches to healthcare today.

What is PhysioYoga?

PhysioYoga is a holistic approach to health care that combines the benefits of yoga practice with the principles of physiotherapy. It is a form of rehabilitation that focuses on the mind, breath, body, and spirit to promote balance and healing.

PhysioYoga is suitable for anyone, including those with injuries or chronic pain. It is particularly effective for those recovering from physical injuries, as it helps to improve strength, mobility, endurance, and circulation, while reducing pain and promoting self-awareness.

The practice of PhysioYoga involves a combination of yoga poses, breathing exercises, meditation, and mindful movement. It is taught by a certified PhysioYoga teacher or a physiotherapist with additional training in yoga therapy.

PhysioYoga is an integrative approach to health care that takes into account the whole person, including biopsychosocial-spiritual factors. It is especially useful for those with pelvic health issues, as it includes specific core strategies and poses to improve pelvic floor health.

Benefits of PhysioYoga

This unique approach to yoga provides a range of benefits for both the mind and body. Here are some of the benefits of PhysioYoga:

  • Improved balance: PhysioYoga can help improve your balance by strengthening your core muscles and improving your body awareness. This can be particularly beneficial for seniors or individuals with balance issues.
  • Reduction of pain: PhysioYoga can help reduce pain by addressing the root cause of the pain. By combining yoga poses with physiotherapy techniques, PhysioYoga can help improve mobility, endurance, and circulation, which can all contribute to a reduction in pain.
  • Increased self-awareness: PhysioYoga can help increase your self-awareness by encouraging you to focus on your breath and body. This can help you become more mindful of your movements and actions, which can lead to a greater sense of control and empowerment.
  • Holistic approach: PhysioYoga takes a holistic approach to health care, addressing the whole person rather than just the physical symptoms. This approach can be particularly beneficial for individuals with chronic pain or injuries.
  • Improved pelvic floor health: PhysioYoga can help improve pelvic floor health by teaching individuals how to engage and relax their pelvic floor muscles. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with pelvic health issues such as pelvic pain, pelvic floor dysfunction, or pelvic organ prolapse.
  • Evidence-informed: PhysioYoga is an evidence-informed practice, meaning that it is based on scientific research and clinical expertise. This ensures that the practice is safe and effective for individuals of all ages and abilities.

PhysioYoga is a unique and effective approach that can provide a range of benefits for both the mind and body. By combining the principles of physiotherapy with yoga practices, PhysioYoga can help patients recover from injuries, reduce pain, and improve their overall health and well-being.

Do You Suffer From Migraines, Jaw Pain, Clicking, or Difficulty Chewing?

Do You Suffer From Migraines, Jaw Pain, Clicking, or Difficulty Chewing?

Did you know that physiotherapy and massage therapy can treat a variety of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunctions and disorders (TMD). The TMJ is a hinge joint just in front of the ears that is controlled by a variety of different muscles and allows you to talk, chew, yawn — essentially open and close your mouth.

TMD encompasses a variety of different problems that can occur to that joint. Symptoms can present as direct pain to the joint, clicking, reduced movement (opening or closing), as well as referred pain to the face, neck, and headaches /migraines.

Whether this issue is something new, or you have been experiencing clicking and pain for years, we widget-areacan help!

Oral Ties

Back in June, Dr. Ashley Slovack from Broadway Dental presented at Vangool Wellness on Oral/Tongue ties and how they affect our sleep, breathing, growth and development. This can impact individuals at all ages and stages of life and be the reason for sleep obstructive disorders, neck and jaw pain, headaches/migraines and so much more. As physiotherapist, we work closely with Dental Partners within the city to help assess, treat, and refer for oral/tongue ties.

If you missed the presentation and would like to learn more, contact us and we will send you a recording of the presentation.
