Yoga for Modern People - 4 week Course
This course will introduce you to some important concepts of yoga and will allow each person to experience the joy of self discovery that we get in those aha moments of our honeymoon yoga period. Therefore it is suitable to beginners and those looking to develop their yoga practice beyond the simple cues common to modern yoga. You do not need to be flexible of strong to get the benefits, there is a version of the pose for everyone’s situation.
Stef teaches to every level of experience with ease in this straight forward mix of traditional yoga postures adapted for the modern body. It bears a passing resemblance to qigong becoming a real moving meditation for even the busiest minded of people.
Technically it’s Hatha flow, the poses aren’t held for a long time and the sessions and course begin with workshop style concepts on approaches to poses, before coming into a flow with music and instructions become less and less to allow more left brain activity and less word processing space for the thoughts to wander off into. There’s a bit of strategic standing on one leg, moderating how much for you.
This style is called Yoga Synergy and has amazed Stef by the dramatic changes it’s highlighted in his yoga practice in only 6 months after having formerly concentrated on Hot Barkan Hatha yoga & Ashtanga for 12 years prior. It is decribed as classical yoga adapted for the modern body and picks up where a lot of yoga leaves off, giving a clear awareness of progression and much reduced risk of injury and even discomfort.
With this style you can get flexible without stretching, strong without feeling tense, and it also is massively effective to bring about a state of calm reducing impulsive tendencies. This style is more consciously embedded in maintaining a relaxed nervous system whilst performing highly effective physical exercise and gleaning benefits for the immune and reproductive systems. You will certainly leave these classes feeling more energised than ever before.
Stef hosts workshops and trains new teachers for Yoga Alliance courses and has studied for over 1000 hours with leading senior yoga teachers such as Lesley Kaminoff (author of best selling Yoga Anatomy), Yoga Synergy coFounder and Director, Simon Borg Olivier MScBAppSc(Physiotherapy). Stef also had the privilege of sitting with the Dalai Lama’s teachings in India, and attending Sri Mooji’s sangha in mount Sahaja. He has also studied with David Swenson, Matt Ryan, Manju Jois and many other renowned teachers & anatomists.
