Kinesiology and Yoga

Kinesiology and yoga

Kinesiology can enhance your Yoga practice.

As a trained sports kinesiologist I often find myself recommending asana (yoga postures) or pranayama (breathing exercises) to my clients as follow-up to the emotional and energetic work done in clinic.

Yoga is a great way to support Kinesiology work as it keeps energy flowing through the pathways we have worked hard to clear and it works both ways. Not only does yoga support kinesiology but kinesiology can actually help yogis to improve and get more from their practice and to enhance the practice as a tool for healing emotional and energetic blockages.

Yoga activates the chakras.

Asana and Pranayama (along with the other limbs of yoga) were all designed within the yogic traditions to correspond to the energies of the chakras. When you activate the energies of the chakras you are making space for healing to occur, for the chakra energy to be enhanced and for past trauma to emerge and be let go of. The deeper the trauma is embedded within the vibrational fabric of the chakras the more difficult we may find the yogic process.

Hate backbends or forward folds? Perhaps tree pose has you off balance. Kinesiology therapy can be used to address the difficulties in the yoga practice and bring information from the subconscious to light to be addressed in a safe conscious setting. It can help us to understand why we avoid some postures (usually the ones we need to work on).

Kinesiology for your Yoga practice .

Kinesiology helps us to identify the causes of stress by accessing the subconscious mind using the body as a biofeedback system to gather information. By working with knowledge from traditional medicines, kinesiology can help to work out the best yoga practice for you to shift energy and heal both body and mind.

Kinesiology works with the Chinese medicine meridian system and the Ayurvedic chakra system to balance energy centres. Kinesiology can also be used to help with the treatment and prevention of physical injuries.

Suggested treatment plan.

When treating an issue with the help of kinesiology I recommend:

  • An initial 90 minute kinesiology consultation followed by 3 – 5 standard consultations 1 -2 weeks apart.
  • Further follow-up standard consultations should be spaced between 2 -4 weeks apart or booked as needed.
