There’s a New Kind of Yoga in Town: ELDOA in Nairobi
If you didn’t commemorate World Yoga Day this past Monday because you have a hard time with the downward dog (that’s a yoga pose), how about first incorporating mobility and injury prevention into your yoga routine if you’re a beginner. Here’s where ELDOA comes in.
Highly recommended for Yoga amateurs, ELDOA is an acronym from French words, which in English translate to longitudinal osteoarticular decoaptation stretches. “Osteoarticular” means bones and joints, “decoaptation” means opening, and ELDOA is the name of both the method and the postures involved.
ELDOA offers a more analytical utilization of the anatomy being influenced in many common yoga poses. The ELDOA poses are specifically influencing individual joints, so it can be used in a targeted manner.
The classes are not quite like yoga classes. They are conducted differently by the instructor, especially with regard to coaching and cueing the alignment. However, you may see some overlap in the appearance of a few postures used. Also, both types of exercise provide many of the same wonderful health benefits including:
- Injury Recovery and Prevention
- Reduced Joint Inflammation and Arthrosis
- Delayed Disc Degeneration
- Increased Disc Hydration
- Increased Blood Flow
- Improved Posture
Acacia Studios in Westlands Nairobi are hosting a session for ELDO beginners at their studio in Westlands on the 26th of June from 2:00-3:30 PM at Ksh 1200 per person.
