Yoga T breathe in yoga

Tue 23 Mar
Report written by Paul Salman

A few GoodGym members came online to do yoga together. Breathing is all important!

Yoga breathing

Please find some notes to help you below. 

Yoga breathing pranayama Ujjayi pranayama: Integral to my yoga.  This breathing (the victorious breath) consists of a gentle breath that is both relaxed and energized, allowing for a balance. Ujjayi pranayama sounds simple enough, in and out through your nose, but on each exhale, you should attempt to make the sound of an ocean wave in the back of your throat. Or another way is to think about steaming up a mirror. It's important that you're not trying to ingest more air, but shift the quality of your breath. Ujjayi breathing is one of the only pranayama techniques that is practiced simultaneously with asanas (postures.)

Interesting talk

The Vagus nerve is part of our parasympathetic nervous system, delivering information from all our major organs to the brain stem, and stimulating it can help us switch off our fight or flight response and calm us down. But listener Mags wants to know what science says about its impact on our general wellbeing? Marnie Chesterton learns some deep breathing techniques and discovers how the length of our exhale is closely linked to our heart rate, all of which is important for developing something called vagal tone. Cold water immersion also said to stimulate the Vagus, so Marnie braves a freezing shower, only to discover she needs to get her face wet but keep the rest of her body dry, to avoid what scientists called autonomic conflict, which is when your stress response and calming response are both switched on by the same event. Activating both arms of the nervous system in this way can lead to serious heart problems in some people. New research into the gut-brain axis has shown that the Vagus nerve may be responsible for transporting the so-called happy hormone serotonin, which could have important implications for the treatment of depression. And innovations in electrical stimulation of this nerve means implanted devices may soon be used to treat inflammatory conditions like arthritis.

Goodgym people bend over backwards to relax!

Tue 9 Mar
Report written by Paul Salman

A few goodgym people joined online yoga. Thanks for coming! Yoga talk

Backbends are invigorating and strengthening. They stretch the quads and hip flexors and help open up the shoulders and chest, an area where lots of us hold tension. ... By increasing mobility and awareness of the spine, backbends improve posture and can help to alleviate some kinds of back and neck pain. By releasing tension we get a relief from anxiety and stress that may build up over the day.

Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback

Strength plan for feet and ankles

Sun 28 Feb 18:45 pm
Your Street, Your City, Your Postcode
Get more out of those pins!

We put heaps of force through our body when we exercise and many runners will have had some experience of pain and injury during their training days.

I know some at GG and other clients I have trained have expressed the frustration and pain off shin splints etc so as part of a fitness routine I have put together a few ideas here that can help prevent it as well as assist with rehab on the way out of it.

These are not to guarantee that bouts of injury will never happen again, but they are to help strengthen those muscles that we take for granted every time we lace up and to help offset injury probability.

In most cases such injuries and pains are likely be from too much too soon, lack of recovery from bigger sessions as well as gait and trainer issues so if you are prone to or experiencing injury do consult a physio or medic first and build up slowly with the least intense methods first.

Session can be found here https://youtu.be/3aotfg-E120

You probably know but just a reminder …doing these once or twice will not set you up for stronger conditioned lower legs for life. They need to be incorporated into a regular pattern of activity. Let’s keep this one live for February and aim for aspects of the plan at least twice a week

Let me know if you have any questions ; - )

It was a bit of a stretch!

Tue 16 Feb
Report written by Paul Salman

A few GoodGym members came online to do some yoga.

yoga talk....

Let’s be honest: Running more isn’t always the best thing we can do for our bodies. As we build mileage, our hamstrings and calf muscles can grow taut while we ignore our core and other muscles. We start to believe more is always more, ignoring our body’s subtle (and not-so-subtle) complaints.

Lucky for us, yoga is a perfect complement to running. Everything that running tightens, yoga stretches. But yoga offers much more than just stretching.

“It’s about balance,” yoga instructor Sage Rountree

Rountree, an ultramarathoner, triathlete, and coach, as well as a yoga instructor, literally wrote the book on how yoga can help runners. Rountree writes about how yoga can help you improve your form, power and strength.

“If done well, yoga lets you see where the imbalances are in your body, and balance is key to preventing injuries,” she says. read more here https://www.fleetfeet.com/blog/how-yoga-for-runners-helps-you-find-balance-and-run-better
