About My Service

Zen Physiotherapy offerings:

Slow Flow (60 min): Moving the body with the breath through postures. In each posture a few options will be given to include all levels from beginner to the advanced yogi. Expect to get your heart rate going, gently work the body, but stretch and relax the body and mind through these fun classes. This class is suitable for beginners and can be modified to suit specific needs and injuries.
Tuesdays: 8 – 9pm
Saturdays: 3 – 4pm (alternating Saturdays beginning September 29)

Restorative (60 min): Longer holds in postures 30sec-5min with slow easy transitions, emphasis on breath work, opening and closing meditations. The use of props such as straps, blocks, blankets and pillows are highly encouraged. Rhea does add gentle core work into her restorative classes as she feels this is an integral piece to restoring the body, but the primary focus is relaxation. You will leave this class with less tension in the body, feeling relaxed and restored for your week to come. This class is suitable for beginners and can be modified to suit specific needs and injuries.
Wednesdays: 7:30 – 8:30pm
