During this unprecedented period, we are launching virtual classes to continue meeting the needs of our patients. While we are unable to provide hands on care, there is so much that we can do to optimize and continue your care. Beyond Basics strongly values both physical and mental health, especially in stressful times. We hope that by offering virtual classes we are able to provide piece of mind and continuity of care for our patients.
Though the world may feel like it’s currently at a standstill, the BBPT team knows that for some of us, pelvic pain remains a constant reality. We’ve designed this exclusive class just for you! Join Kathryn Maykish, PT, DPT in a 1-hour virtual yoga class for pelvic pain relief—all experience levels welcome!
The flow style sequence will include breathing exercises (pranayama), strengthening and stretching poses (asana) and a short meditation (dhyana). This combination has been shown to reduce pain and improve quality of life in several research studies, making yoga an effective supplement to physical therapy. Yoga has also been shown to reduce stress—something we could all benefit from at this time!
Kathryn Maykish received her Doctor of Physical Therapy from New York Medical College in 2017. She became interested in Physical Therapy after working as a yoga instructor for over 10 years. She was apprenticed to teach through Yoga to the People in NYC and helped them to develop and grow their teacher training programs. Since 2007, she has instructed thousands of hours of group and private classes, graduated more than a thousand teachers, and taught in major studios across the country. Kathryn’s classes combine a deep understanding of anatomy with opportunities for students to move and breathe freely. Her class will keep you safe while helping you feel good! Above all, Kathryn believes that yoga is for every body, and will always offer ways to modify or intensify based on your personal goals or limitations.
“I love this posture because it balances strength and length at the same time. The low lunge challenges the leg and hip muscles to be supportive, but the long stride provides a gentle stretch to the inner thighs. Spreading the arms open wide helps to open up across the chest and can facilitate deeper breaths.
