The holistic approach of Medical Yoga combines Yoga perfectly with Modern Mayr Medicine. Mindfulness and body awareness are key aspects of Yoga, however on a physical level, Medical Yoga fosters stability, energy, flexibility, relaxation, focus, inner balance and restfulness.
Medical Yoga at the Park Igls Mayr clinic not only mobilises the musculoskeletal system, but has a positive effect on every aspect of the body. Different postures and breathing techniques stimulate the circulation, gently massage the internal organs to activate digestion and help still the mind.
Calming inhalations and exhalations combine with meditation exercises for relaxation and inner harmony.
Another important aspect connecting Modern Mayr Medicine with Yoga is breathwork. Breathing is regarded as the mirror of the soul and the gateway to life. Within our nervous system, there is a strong association between our breath and our feelings, which means that breathing can be regarded as the link that joins body, mind and spirit. Modern Mayr Medicine believes that correct and conscious breathing can have a healing effect, relieve digestive problems, boost the immune system, improve brain activity and detoxify the body. In addition to the physical and psychological aspects, the Yoga classes and one-to-ones at Park Igls also work on the breath and the diaphragm.
In the classic Hatha Yoga at the Park Igls we provide a valuable ‘instruction manual’ for physical workouts and dealing with everyday life. You’ll experience structural and dynamic embodied intelligence in your own body and enjoy the positive effects – both physically and mentally. Our Medical Yoga classes at Park Igls are designed to be suitable for everyone: all ages and levels of Yoga experience, as well as individuals with back or joint problems or other physical constraints. Our Yoga classes are held in a bright and spacious room with a splendid view of the Nordkette mountain range, and are led by experienced Yoga teachers who respond to each guest’s needs with sensitivity and wisdom. There is also the option to deepen your Yoga practice with one-to-one lessons. We focus especially on movement, strength and flexibility, on anatomically sensible, correct and body-friendly exercises, relaxation and calmness, the immune and nervous systems, the cardiovascular system and on the internal organs.
