Tailored Yoga for the hypermobile, the super bendy & the injured.
This class is open to all, but is especially designed for the hyper mobile, the super bendy and the injured who wish to create or maintain a longevous, sustainable Yoga practice.
As a recovering hypermobile myself, during my 32 year personal practise, I've learnt (the hard way) how to adapt and create a more supportive way of doing Yoga, which incidentally has made me a lot stronger! As a teacher, over the years I've seen a great many people (especially women and fellow Yoga teachers) drawn to Yoga precisely because of their hyper mobility, unaware that a certain way of moving is not only unsustainable but could lead to long term joint instability and/or injury. But we can turn this situation to our advantage, becoming stronger, more self aware, and increasing our movement repertoire and choices. In this way our Yoga can accompany us throughout our whole lives.
Using slow, strong, conscious movement, with attention to detail, this class aims to develop stability and strength, to clarify and improve healthy ranges of motion and joint stability through proprioception, increased movement repertoire and choice through new and different ways of moving, as well including movements to favour the circulation of synovial fluid to help keep joints supple. This could be a stand alone practice or support your current practice, whatever style of Yoga or sport that may be.
Suitable for all levels. Previous experience with Yoga, Pilates, Martial Arts, Dance or Gymnastics is advisable. Please note this is a Flow class. It is not gentle Yoga.
