FREESTYLE FITNESS YOGA
WHY PRACTICE FREESTYLE FITNESS YOGA WITH SALLY?
Fight the ageing process… (together!)
Freestyle Fitness Yoga (FFY) incorporates stretch, strength and Yoga postures and is validated from a fitness perspective. Anyone taking part can expect to improve their flexibility, increasing their range of movement around their joints… So folks to banish stiff joints and tight, tense muscles, take Albert Einstein’s advice… “Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance, you must keep moving”… and Sally’s advice… “practise FFY to move more effectively and efficiently, with better posture and self-awareness”
Enhance our feeling of wellbeing
Develop greater awareness of your breath and teach yourself to control your breathing. This will help you in all other daily functions from trying to sleep to staying calm in a panicky situation. Learn to listen to your body when it’s physically challenged and make appropriate positive responses and also learn and practice the art of relaxation to further enhance wellbeing… Ahhh that’s better.
Get stronger and stay stronger… (in mind and body)
FFY focuses on transitions from one posture to another which challenges the skeletal muscles as you lift and lower the body/body parts and hold a posture; or flow from a lunge, to a plank, to a tricep press. Challenging yourself physically and rising to the challenge will lead to improved self-confidence and an ever increasing positive mental attitude… Let’s do it…
Improve your body awareness
Understand what you are being asked to do and why because Freestyle Yoga is taught from a fitness perspective. You don’t need to know your uttanasana from your bakasana. You will learn which posture for example stretches your hamstring, when your abdominals are working and where your diaphragm is!!... Hmmm.. still confused? Come and learn more about YOUR body. You are encouraged to take control of your workout in order that each individual; the strongest, the most supple, the most mindful, gets the maximum out of their practice.
Meet and mix with a positive thinking, fun, friendly social group
Mix with other group members who have a great positivity about them. Feed off each other’s energy and humour. Be a part of a team with many differences but where everyone feels included.
To laugh more
Yes in this FFY class we work physically hard resulting in an occasional grunt or groan (or is that just the group moaning at me?); a wobble (sometimes with a domino effect); shaky muscles, mostly through hard work sometimes due to suppressed laughter… Let it all go I say… The giggles are good for you… And now welcome to laughing yoga …… ENJOY
