Course Description

Stress is a 21st Century epidemic - in 2015/16, the UK lost 11.7 million working days to stress, depression and anxiety.

Multiple studies have shown that yoga can reduce stress, improve sleep, reduce high blood pressure and even help with aches and pains. But for many people, the idea of going to a yoga class as a complete beginner is a bit offputting. This is why we've created Yoga for Stressed People.

It's designed for beginners, so no headstands here! Instead, we've put together a simple routine that you can do at home with minimal equipment. There's advice and guidance on how to make the routine work for you, as well as plenty of the science behind the poses so that you not only know what to do, but why you're doing it.

Consultant physiotherapist Nell Mead

Former Army Major Nell is the only physiotherapist in the world to have completed full training in both the Integrated Systems Model (developed by Diane Lee and LJ Lee in Canada) and the Sarah Key Method (developed by Sarah Key, physiotherapist to the Queen). This training allowed her to develop the Health & Performance Pyramid, which underpins all of the work done at her clinic. Nell has a reputation for being the therapist to see when no-one else can fix you. Her expertise is sought out by patients worldwide, and in 2014 Zesty named her “best physiotherapist in London for serious injuries and rehabilitation”. Her philosophy is very holistic and incorporates the latest research in nutrition, biomechanics and neuroplasticity - and her clinic (previously named Victory Health & Performance) in central London, gives her the opportunity to work with stressed-out and injured patients on a daily basis! Nell's online courses are all based on the methods and techniques she uses in clinic every day. However, please bear in mind that we have not assessed your specific injury - every case is different, and our courses are not a substitute for individual medical advice. You must not rely on the information in our courses as an alternative to medical advice from your doctor or other professional healthcare provider. If you have any specific questions about any medical matter, you should consult your doctor or other professional healthcare provider. You should never delay seeking medical advice, disregard medical advice or discontinue medical treatment because of information in our courses.
