Benefits of fitness and exercises during pregnancy
Most antenatal exercises are beneficial to the majority of pregnant women. Whether you are doing your weekly swimming session or walking in the park, as long as you do not experience any discomfort or pain you can carry on with your low-impact training. In a normal situation, pregnant women are allowed to perform most physical activities and exercises during their pregnancy period except heavy activities. Regular daily exercises like walking, swimming, cycling, Pilates, yoga and aerobic classes will do both you and your baby the world of good. If you need more advice on your pregnancy exercise programme during your pregnancy period, contact our London physiotherapist team or your midwife. If you do go to any exercise classes, make sure the instructor knows that you are pregnant.

Elderly exercise classes is one of our creative programme that provide fitness and care to aged people. Aging is causing many physical and mental conditions. Many studies have shown that exercises, training and physical activities are very essential to prevent or delay the age related disease.
Our physiotherapy centre is offering elderly exercise classes for people who like to be fit and healthy. The elderly class is suitable for men and women above 60 years old and one physiotherapist is instructing the group of elderly during the exercise class. In addition, the client has opportunity to discuses his/her health issues with physiotherapist and obtain adequate advices.
Physical exercise is an effective way of maintaining both mental and physical health, and has an important role to play in preventing dementia. Tai chi, for example, benefits both the mind and the body, and is particularly suited to elderly people because it has no violent impact, but there are also many other activities which are similarly beneficial. Regular exercise not only improves blood circulation and stimulates the growth of brain cells, but also significantly reduces the risk of developing conditions, which can lead to dementia, such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
In our physiotherapy clinic, we have yoga classes that can meet your needs. You may do yoga for general health and fitness, trying to relieve a specific musculoskeletal condition, or managing daily stress is your aim. You can get professional advice from our therapist (yoga instructor) in a face-to-face free introduction session.
The health and fitness benefits of yoga have been known since long time. You may try yoga and discover what it can do for your body, mind and your soul.
Yoga and stress reduction: Yoga reduces the stress and its physical effects such as muscular tension and stiffness.
Yoga and pain relief: reducing the pain is the next benefit of yoga. Studies have demonstrated that practicing yoga postures, meditation or a combination of the two, reduced pain for people with conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune diseases, hypertension, arthritis, lower back pain, neck pain etc.
Yoga and breathing: Yoga teaches people to take slower, deeper breaths. This helps to improve lung function, trigger the body's relaxation response and increase the amount of oxygen available to the body.
Yoga and flexibility: Yoga helps to improve flexibility and mobility, increasing range of movement and reducing aches and pains. Many people can't touch their toes during their first yoga class. Gradually they begin to use the correct muscles. Over time, the ligaments, tendons and muscles lengthen, increasing elasticity, making more poses possible. Yoga also helps to improve body alignment resulting in better posture and helping to relieve back, neck, joint and muscle problems.
Yoga and strength increasing: Yoga asanas (postures) use every muscle in the body, helping to increase strength literally from head to toe. And, while these postures strengthen the body, they also provide an additional benefit of helping to relieve muscular tension.
Yoga has many other benefits for our soul and body. For more information, please contact our physiotherapist.
