Preparation for Lotus position with David Keil

I love these short clips on anatomy- and how to work with injuries from David Keil. Lotus is a pose many people struggle with especially if they have knee pain or tight hips...David says the glutes muscles are playing a big part too, which is why these stretches should help.

Thank you for sharingDavid Keil·

K-taping tennis elbow.( or yoga injury)

You don't have to play tennis to get tennis elbow-in fact may yoga practitioners get the symptoms when over loading in chaturnga danadasana and other poses.
K taping is great for helping you work with injuries-in fact on my last trip to Mysore I taped my injured wrist, and I could be spotted around the shala every time I raised my hands above my head ( it was a neon pink tape)....and it kept me going for my six week stay.
There are some great videos on how to K tape and this is one that I have used for elbow pain- ( wrist one to follow)

May NCT Talk: Intro to Mum and Baby Yoga

Introduction to Mum and Baby Yoga

with Hajni Varadi, yoga teacher and massage therapist


Tuesday 6th May 2014, 11am to 12pm

Mum and Baby Yoga is a great way to spend time with your baby in a relaxed environment. You can gain confidence in handling you baby and learn how to sooth colic and aid sleep etc. Women can come back into their bodies, and start to stretch out areas that may have become tight during pregnancy or when feeding your baby.

Learn how to soothe yourself and your baby by using rhythm and breathing techniques. Mum and Baby Yoga classes are also a great place to connect with other women who are going through the same experiences as you.

Cost and bookings

This talk is free of charge. Places are limited, so booking is essential. If you would like to attend this talk, please call us on 020 8789 3881 or send us an email to info@putneyclinic.co.uk quoting May NCT talk as the subject.
