Modern Mayr Medicine is about training consciousness and developing body awareness as well as mindfulness. It provides a holistic method for revitalising the body and the mind and – combined with Yoga – it is the perfect practice to encourage both physical and emotional healing. Medical Yoga practised at Park Igls Mayr clinic incorporates mindfulness, body awareness, coordination and deep relaxation. Every aspect of the body benefits from different postures and breathing techniques to stimulate the circulation, gently massage the internal organs to activate digestion and help still the mind.
A key aspect that links Modern Mayr Medicine and Yoga is breathwork. Whether balancing, calming or energising: the right breathing technique can control many of our bodily processes. Yogic breathing exercises not only relax the body, they also have a healing effect, help relieve rigid body patterns, promote easy breathing and offer a pathway to spiritual awakening. Within the nervous system, there is a strong association between the breath and emotions, demonstrating that breathing can be regarded as the link between body, mind and spirit. The Yoga classes and one-to-ones at Park Igls emphasise breath and diaphragm work as well as physical and psychological aspects.
Whether in classes or one-to-one sessions, the experienced Yoga teachers respond to each guest’s needs with sensitivity and wisdom, focusing on movement, strength and flexibility, on anatomically sensible, correct and body-friendly exercises, relaxation and calmness, the immune and nervous systems, the cardiovascular system and on the internal organs. The classic Hatha Yoga practised at Park Igls Mayr clinic provides a valuable ‘instruction manual’ for physical workouts and dealing with everyday life.
