Freestyle Yoga Therapy
Many styles of yoga are regimented and often repeat the same pose sequences. Although there are benefits from this type of practice it can also cause repetitive motion strain and an over development in some areas of the body while other areas are left unexplored. Freestyle yoga has come to many yogis who have had various styles of training and advanced body awareness disciplines.
The idea behind Freestyle Yoga is to let the body’s intelligence take over and use all that it has experienced to put together the practice needed at the moment. A series of postures can be repeated for some time and suddenly a whole new movement and discovery may begin. It is spontaneous and unrehearsed and seems to unfold as naturally as dance. Eventually the body and the psyche flow more readily allowing a deeper connection within. The concept is to encourage participants to approach each moment with an open mind to their yoga practice.It’s much more interesting and fun to attend a class where you can never fully anticipate what you will experienced next. After all yoga is about self-discovery.
The workshop encompasses strengthening exercises, long stretches (asanas), breathing practices and play between the poses. There may be constant flow of movement and there will be periods of stillness. Pranayama, meditation and mantra are incorporated bringing you a full Yoga practice, all ultimately guided by you.This advanced yoga class is for Yogis and Yoginis who have had at least 3 years experience of regular practice. Definitely for those who would like to dive deeper into their practice and challenge themselves in self development.
