What Kind of Yoga do you Teach?

Updated: Jul 5

I always hesitate when asked; ' what kind of yoga do you do?' 

Is there actually different kinds of Yoga and what do we actually mean by 'Yoga'. in a world saturated by different yoga brands. What in fact was the original intention of Yoga?

Yoga is both a process and a state of meditation, which may seem far from the many brands and class 'styles', that have emerged along with many versions popularised by the fitness industry.

Yoga as a process slowly draws our attention away from the many distractions (that keep us in state of stress) and brings us back to the body, back to the 'centre' of our being.This not only brings us back to feeling into the innate intelligence of the body but also helps to  develop a laser like focus of the mind. This attention has a feedback loop connected by the neurological network of the body an intelligence that speaks to us if we listen. This focus allows us to move away from negative stories and patterns and towards a more liberated heart a more centred way of living. 

So, its not as much WHAT yoga asana you 'do' but HOW you do them is of the greatest importance, allowing the fullness of the breath by unlocking the major muscles that keep it shallow and irregular, impacting on our levels of stress and anxiety. As we know the breath & mind are interconnected, addressing our breath is a game changer for mental health and the immune system, resulting in WHOLE BODY BALANCE.

On our 200hrs TTC we cover In depth Asana training from it’s Hatha origins to the sequencing of Vinyasa including elements of the more dynamic Ashtanga Vinyasa method alongside more restorative Asana practice with inspiration taken from

both classical old style Hatha Yoga as well as modern restorative forms that include flowing yin styles.

Our method is to slow down traditional yoga sequences and explore them somatically allowing you to turn inwards rather than focusing on just the external form.

Working intelligently with movement to create healthy neuromuscular patterning. Encouraging everyone to use the breath to move more intelligently inside this vehicle

of life force energy.

We love to break down postures to their tiniest elements helping to overcome the mental obstacles, along with functional anatomy of movement. Understanding where

our balance lies and how to find it. When we modify, we slow down, so our attention gets focused on breathing consciously and opening the space. This can bring an even greater awareness to how joints and muscles work together in harmony,

particularly, spirals and counter spirals.
