Physio, Yoga & Wellness is excited to announce a new and improved 6 Week 'Yoga for Balance' series starting May 16th, 2022!
New options include Level 1 and Level 2 classes (Mondays at 4pm and 5:15pm MDT) along with a Thursday mindfulness and meditation class (4pm MDT). Level 1 classes are perfect for those experiencing elevated symptoms or are new to yoga. We take things slow and provide a plethora of cues for movement, body scans, and helpful tips. Level 2 classes involve increased movements and positions to challenge the sensory system at a higher level; ideal for those who have participated in previous 'Yoga for Balance' sessions or those that are currently managing symptoms well. The Thursday mediation class allows for an opportunity to practice mindfulness through body scans, breathing, and cuing to reduce nervous system sensitivity and calm symptoms.
For those that need more individualized help, one-on-one sessions are available and give you the opportunity to ask questions specific to you and develop a personalized plan. In-person classes are held at the Treehouse Studio (Washington Park neighborhood) for participants located in Denver. Virtual classes are held via Zoom and all video recordings are available on a private YouTube channel.
'Yoga for Balance' is based on the book 'Rock Steady: Healing Vertigo or Tinnitus with Neuroplasticity' by Joey Remenyi. A holistic and whole-body approach to healing unwanted sensations in the body that make you feel not quite right, 'Rock Steady' focuses on body scans, positive self talk, and neutrality to sensations and feelings. In 'Yoga for Balance', we build on these cues to promote neuroplasticity in a safe, but practical way. Visual processing cues, body and head movements, verbal cues for activation, and positional challenges are incorporated in a progressive way to encourage the brain and body to heal.

Yoga doesn't just help dizziness, tinnitus, and vertigo! Research shows that regular yoga practice has neuroprotective effects on the brain, specifically reducing grey matter age related declines. MRI studies shows increased brain volume in areas that are responsible for visualization, stress regulation, somatosensory function, and body representation. This suggests that people who practice yoga have improved neural control and autonomic nervous system functioning. Learn more about this research here.
