The University of York ran one of the largest yoga research studies funded by Arthritis UK. They ran specialized courses in 5 areas of the UK. The positive results showing it to be safe & effective were published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
During 12 months studied, those in the yoga group had an average of 3.83 days of work compared to 12.29 in the non~yoga group.
How the course works? – initially teaching simple pain-relieving positions and strategies; progressing gradually with strengthening and stretching poses and movements, designed to improve flexibility, mobility and posture; breathing, mindfulness and relaxation techniques. Alongside the classes you will need to invest in the resource pack to work with in between our weekly classes to really feel the benefits from the course.
