Britons are now spending a staggering £790 million a year on yoga classes.

So what’ is the hype about?


Using Yoga to relieve joint pain is an enjoyable way to increase movement, gain joint strength and feel more confident exercising with arthritis and injury. Here are several reasons that yoga may help to relieve pain in the joints. 

Brain Function

If crossword puzzles and Sudoku have been the extent of your memory training to now, it could be time to sharpen up your warrior pose. The recent UCLA research took brain scans and memory tests, comparing the effects of 12 weeks of memory exercises with a course of yoga and meditation on 25 adults over 55. The latter not only had better improvements in their spatial and visual memories, but also more reduced depression and anxiety and increased resilience to stress.

Stress Management and Boosting your Mood

Yoga has also been shown to be as effective as walking or jogging in the reducing the risk of heart disease. This is likely to be because yoga reduces stress – a big contributor to heart disease. Stress hormones raise both blood pressure and heart rate, increasing the likelihood of blood clots. Previous research has shown that practising yoga is associated with some improvement in blood pressure, cholesterol and weight, which are all risk factors for heart disease as well as reducing stress and anxiety.

Muscle Toning, Balance, Weight-loss and Pain Relief

Its benefits of flexibility, core stability, support, balance and strength have been shown to help those living with chronic conditions. Yoga involves the whole body and can benefit conditions such as incontinence because it targets the pelvic floor, as well as long term musculoskeletal conditions - back pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis - all that gentle weight bearing is kind to the joints, keeping them flexible and stimulating increased bone density.


You don’t need to be doing hours of yoga to reap the benefits. Studies have shown that even one hour a week gave increased physical and mental wellbeing, including pain relief and improved sleep.

What are the benefits of using an Ankle Support?

A lot of us do not have the capabilities that we did when we were younger. Whether it be due to injuries, ageing or a particular condition, our joints change over time. The same can be applied to our ankles. As we use them every single day, our ankles can get worn out over time.


There are many ways to overcome this, some tend to go for treatment whilst others use different methods. One way to recover is from using an Ankle Support, which is a great way to recover from injuries, provide support and to improve stamina and stability.

Running is an excellent hobby, with it keeping you in great shape whilst also being fun and enjoyable. It has been a staple exercise since humans first came into existence. Many people have created great careers from running, and it has created many opportunities for us all as it is easy and convenient.


However, it is common to come into complications with running. Injuries happen more often than you’d think, and some people who are injured want to continue running. As it becomes such an important part of our day, we seem to miss the endorphin rush that running brings us.
