Staying Healthy During Lockdown

As we wait for the world to return to a little bit of normal – there are still some things that we can do to better our spirits.

Holistically there are treatments and products available to help take the edge off.

According to the list of businesses permitted to open, regulated health professionals may still provide treatment providing they follow all protocols.  They are allowed to provide in-person service when the anticipated benefits outweigh the risks.

Jeevanaya Wellness at 40 Bell Farm Rd. # 14 has set in place strict COVID protocols for any allowable services.  There are also health related products available as well for curbside pickup.  For more information call Anita!

Jeevanaya Wellness

- YOGA -

There are many exercises that are marketed to entice us into movement, however for lifelong benefits perhaps the simplest and most affordable is Yoga.

Anita Kaur, or Jeevanaya Wellness in Barrie is an ayurvedic Wellness Consultant/Yoga Teacher who schools us today on particular styles of Yoga and who they benefit the most.  Amongst the numerous styles of Yoga available, Anita brings it back to the basics for us.

She starts our lesson with Power Yoga.  A Yoga that is especially good exercise for the Kapha Dosha people.  In Ayurvedic practice these are the people that sit long hours at their work stations, that don’t move, but need movement, are highly creative and involved in their work.  Power Yoga moves their body, increasing blood flow, lymphatic drainage, proper muscle strength and breathing techniques.  It is the most invigorating style of yoga.

The second lesson takes the Pitta Dosha people to task.  They are the  Type A personalities who are highly competitive which goes hand in hand with higher anxiety and stressors.  Anita would have these very busy people take part in a Yin Yoga class.  She tells us that Yin Yoga is a very slow, meditative and relaxing yoga.  It helps to still the busy mind through meditation and movement, bringing deep cleansing breaths to connect mind and body.  Yin Yoga is also very helpful in restoring balance to those who suffer injuries.

Lastly, Anita discusses Restorative Yoga for the Vata Dosha people.  These are the people in high stress jobs, enough to cause headaches and migraines.  The Vata Dosha type tend to have a lot of anxiety and restlessness which requires deeply relaxing body moves to remove toxins from body and mind.  Restorative Yoga is wonderful for any people with these issues or chronic pain as it helps healing through blood flow and again the use of props to support movement.

The Yoga teachers at Jeevanaya Wellness train their students that any Yoga teaches proper breathing, mindfulness, a joining of body and spirit without judgement.  Each type builds strong immune systems, strengthens muscles and mobility allowing us to partake in life to the fullest.

In closing, the staff at Jeevanaya Wellness invite you to sample their most exclusive Ancient treatments or even better, gift a Yoga Class or a Treatment to a boss or loved one for Christmas.
