Introducing Back Maintenance Yoga

            Regular stretching and strengthening exercises, such as yoga poses, are great for maintaining the health of your back and preventing problems.  Previous painful experiences often make us afraid to move and cause us to hold tightness in the muscles.  This actually makes us more likely to develop back pain again.  So it’s important to begin small, to do your yoga practice with awareness, and to increase your range of movement gradually. Here’s why our new class is great for back health: Strengthen your muscles Good muscle tone maintains and supports the back.  Our Back Maintenance Yoga classes include a range of poses that strengthen the back muscles – both the inner core muscles that we need for stability and stamina, and the outer muscles that we need for efficient movement and load bearing. Get more flexible Practising a range of yoga poses that develop flexibility in the spine keep it supple and therefore less prone to injury.  Flexibility is clearly a physical issue, but there is also a large mental component.  By approaching your body and its movements in a different way you challenge old holding patterns and free up your whole body.  If you are not used to a regular yoga practice you may be surprised how quickly your flexibility increases over a course of sessions. Learn to relax Complete relaxation of the body at will is a skill that you learn with practice and is a useful skill to have, helping you to take the edge off stressful situations.  In Our Back Maintenance Yoga classes we practice a relaxation exercise at the end of each session which has many knock-on health benefits and is great therapy for your back. Improve your posture Poor posture places strain on your back whenever you are upright.  Our Back Maintenance Yoga classes help your body re-learn what it knew as a child – how to be upright without effort. Move efficiently If we have an unbalanced posture then any movement we make – lifting, bending, getting in and out of the car – can all put unnecessary strain on the spine, the intervertebral discs and the back muscles and ligaments.  Learn how to make these movements safely, while maintaining the integrity of the body's structure, so that everyday life activities become exercises in themselves.  Bending, lifting, carrying, when done in the right way, can all help you to develop fitness, strength, flexibility and awareness, rather than bringing strain and pain.

All levels

These classes have been specifically designed to allow participants to work at their own intensity level, with the ability to modify all exercises according to their own personal fitness.


A person new to training or an individual with below average fitness levels can be termed as a beginner. These classes are also suitable for those returning to exercise after a break/injury.


A person training at intermediate level should have a fair amount of base fitness and coordination and thus can be exposed to a higher intensity workout.


At an advanced level, the participant should have experience in subjecting themselves to high intensity training on a regular basis. Every person starting off as a beginner should aspire to reach this level.

Online booking is available for members for classes, activities and spa treatments.
Non-members can book our spa treatments online, and please call 01983 766222 to book classes or activities.
