Freestyle Fitness Yoga by Jayne Nicholls
Sally trained with Jayne Nicholls who founded Freestyle Fitness Yoga and she adopts a similar philosophy to Yoga to release your modern Yogi.
The name Yoga conjures up one of 1 million different images, depending on your experience or the things you have seen, heard or read about this ancient form of exercise, that also overflows into religion and lifestyle.
Traditional Yoga has a history dating back almost 5000 years and vibrates with the experience of Yogis and seers, who have developed it from the spoken word to a physical form of exercise influenced by martial arts and regional dance. Love it or hate it, it is one of the most influential and wide reaching forms of exercise to have ever been created and no one can lay claim to it or own it, they can only influence it further as it evolves.
So to be part of this evolution is a brave step as it involves creating a programme that suits the UK demographic but does not offend the traditionalists.
Jayne Nicholls has done just that with her programme Freestyle Fitness Yoga celebrating the Millennium in 2000 by carefully stripping the physical practise of the more esoteric elements that might put you off even trying your first class. Now 12 years old Freestyle Fitness Yoga is taught Nationwide by instructors who integrate traditional Yoga postures into the language of fitness with all the fun of group exercise.
Freestyle Fitness Yoga is designed with you in mind, creating a powerful programme of strength, endurance and flexibility. We fuse traditional Yoga postures with contemporary Fitness principles allowing you to own your practise and release the modern Yogi.
Yoga allows you to find an equilibrium state in body and mind, Freestyle Fitness Yoga champions your skills and offers an understanding of your limitations.
You will achieve personal peace and perfection through your workout with Freestyle Fitness Yoga.
Will you work out in Freestyle Fitness Yoga?
The postures are tweaked and manipulated to hit the body’s major muscle groups effectively, creating a life-long workout by holding longer and going deeper. Freestyle Fitness Yoga never fails to hit the spot!
Will you relax in Freestyle Fitness Yoga?
The peaceful environment of this class allows everyone to work in their own zone which is inevitably relaxing. Freestyle Fitness Yoga roots you to your spot allowing you to practise at your own pace to suit your mood and energy levels.
Is it a fun class?
Using music and interaction allows Freestyle Fitness Yoga classes to bond and get to know both the instructor and the whole group. It is a more intimate experience than frantic classes.
Is it spiritual?
We all have our own version of spiritualism, enlightenment and personal development and Freestyle Fitness Yoga allows you all to express yourselves in your own unique style.
The true purpose of Yoga is self actualisation which today is no mean feat for any busy working individual. In a Freestyle Fitness Yoga class you can be who you want to be without intimidation or conforming to the boundaries set by a specific style of Yoga practice.
