April 9th, 2019 Comments Off

Did you know that yoga has been shown to be effective in the treatment of chronic/long term low back pain? We often get questions about where to go for yoga in Langley. Dr. Freedman took the time to create a resource list of yoga studios and classes at rec centres in Langley.

There are many different styles of yoga:

  • Hatha yoga – Generally a slower moving practice with some stretching, breathing and maybe meditation depending on the teacher. Usually suitable for all levels.
  • Flow yoga – A more active yoga practice with movement between each pose. Suitable if you are not currently injured and have a baseline of fitness.
  • Power yoga – An active, strength building practice. Suitable if you are not currently injured and have a baseline of fitness.
  • Yin Yoga – A small number of yoga poses held for a long time in order to get a deep stretch. Suitable for all levels if you are not currently injured.
  • Restorative yoga – A very gentle, calm practice, often using a lot of pillows and other props, typically sitting or lying on the ground. Suitable for all levels, including if you have an existing injury, and good for stress or anxiety.
  • Hot yoga – The yoga room is heated to over 30 degrees during the class.
