As yogis, we’re used to hearing instructions such as, ‘breathe’, ‘bend’ and ‘flex’, but how often are we asked to, ‘spiral’? That’s the beauty of learning new movement patterns- we get to indulge our curioursity and explore new ways of moving and connecting to our bodies. It’s part of why we’ve expanded our range of offerings. Have you ever wondered what Gyrokinesis is? Check it out in this video.
Why not give it a try with Maurizio on Tuesdays at 9am? If you’ve done it before, he also has a class on Thursdays at 5pm or with Steph at 7:30am Mondays.
All you need is a simple chair and a mat. Breathe , spiral, bend , flex – you will feel great!

Chiropractic Central is considered by the government an essential service so we are still open. This is to help people and to take pressure off the hospital and GP offices with any back pain, neck pain, headaches etc
We are also doing video consults for at home work ergonomics.. As many people are now working from home, we are getting them to take a picture of them at their at home work station and send it to us and then we have a 15-20 min consult with them about how they can specifically optimize their station and minimize stress on their spines and posture.
Our naturopath, Olivia, is also offering online consultations for continued support for increasing immune system support.
These times have proven to be difficult for many.
We understand that there are many of you who rely upon the help of our practitioners and we want you to know, THAT WE ARE OPEN!
Since the start of this crisis our team has been working hard to ensure not only the safety of our team, but all patients also.
Furthermore, we have taken many measures to assure anyone who has been unwell or recently travelled to abide by government recommendations; and re schedule their appointments for later down the track. Same applies to anyone who has been in contact with someone who has covid-19.
For those who cannot attend our clinic, please do not worry as this doesn’t mean you cannot stick to your treatment plan – we are offering video consults !
As always, we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our clinics and are more than ever enforcing strict hygiene protocols to ensure everyone’s safety.
Looking forward to seeing you and helping our community as we have for many years
