Functional Flow Yoga
Traditional yoga shapes, sometimes flowing like a slow flow class, combined with progressive strength building and mobility focussed movement to move and feel better in your body. It compliments any fitness regime, helps to prevent injury, and is suitable for all levels. Some focus on interception (becoming aware of the internal bodily sensations) to build inner awareness. Ends with a guided relaxation.
A nurturing practice to help you rest and restore. Bolsters, blocks and blankets are used to support the body so that it can slow down physiologically into relaxation. This leads to a better regulated nervous system, which impacts on the mind. Surprisingly it leaves one feeling energised, as well as relaxed and refreshed. Poses are held for 10-20 minute durations. Ends with a guided relaxation.
Over the years I have taught many different types of people privately. As well as adults of all different body types (super stiff to hyper-mobile), I've taught beginners, injured, and advanced yoga teachers, as well as children of different ages, and special needs children. Classes take place at the home of the client or at my home studio. It's a great way to learn because of the focussed attention, and the scope to tailor the practise to the needs of the student and their goals.
Trauma Sensitive Yoga
This is TSY yoga developed at the Trauma Centre at Justice Resource Institute, Massachusetts, rather different from normal yoga. More on what it is on TCTSY, and for my Trauma Sensitive Yoga work, have a look on www.saraimonk.com.
