Service Description

Fortnightly - Friday's 9:30-11am with Mary-Ella (KernowYoga) Chronic Pain is pain that lasts longer than 3 months. This can be exhausting, frustrating, debilitating and depressing. Mary-Ella’s own experience of chronic back problems, lasting several years, has led to the development of this class. After attending a Pain Management Course in Plymouth, she formed a strong bond with the people on her course. She designed movement sessions exclusively for them, hosted at Space to Move, which began to help and support them with their day-to-day suffering. Mary-Ella and the group would now like these sessions to be available for others to benefit. You can benefit from the following aspects - Quiet meditation helps to bring the mind to stillness, learning to accept any sensations that exist. Turning your attention inwards, you can begin to be more present in the moment, lessening thoughts of the past or projections into the future. Connection with the breath helps to channel/broaden your focus, lower the heart rate, and subsequently calm your nervous system. Gentle movement, linked with the breath, allows a stronger mind and body connection to develop. It helps to relieve muscle tension and joint pain, giving you more mobility, increased strength, and improved balance. You are encouraged to take whatever position suits you; seated, standing, or lying. Experimenting by switching between positions, to discover which are comfortable for you on that day, is part of a process designed to help you to develop your own practice. The class concludes with relaxation in which restorative yoga poses are personalised for you for maximum comfort and impact.  A guided visualisation allows the body to rest on a deep level, leaving you feeling nourished. 'With a number of disabilities contributing to chronic pain, fatigue and other issues related to those conditions, I arrive at Mary-Ella's sessions wound as tight as a coiled spring. But, both during and after the sessions, I am transformed and return home again feeling totally relaxed. I never once, ever could have envisaged that I would be participating in yoga sessions. But I'm so glad I did...' (Denis) ​Sliding affordability scale £13.50-£15.00 per session (90 minutes) Begin to be part of a community, that understands your issues, and make connections that can help and support you in the short and long term.
