The sensations you have all over the body after a strong class.
I have been teaching yoga for more than twenty years.
The Synergy 'method' of teaching and doing yoga can be applied to any 'style' of yoga. It allows each student to do a version of the asana suitable for their ability and experience. Our classes are progressive over a two month period so if you can commit to a regular class, you will learn a complete sequence.
Twice a week is great and the benefits are in excess of double a single weekly practise. If you can do three classes per week - even better!
Never too late. As we progress through different stages of our lives, there are forms of yoga that benefit each stage.
Increased strength and flexibility for sure. Increased body awareness - of your own and others. Awareness of breath increases and consequently a slowing of the breath. And after a while, clarity of a situation and a sense of calmness can be called upon when required.
Eka pada galanasana. It is an asana requiring openness (hips), balance (arms), strength and a semblance of overall lightness. And when I have frustrations with my own practise, it is a pose that reminds me that I have some availability in each of those areas.
Initially I did the Yoga Synergy Teacher Training course to deepen my own knowledge and understanding. For me it was a natural progression to want to share that knowledge.
Simply this - knowing how I'm going to feel after the practise.
It's not the restrictions or limitations of your body that will hold you back, it's the inflexibility of your mind.
The whole Elixr experience is very warm and welcoming. The facilities are great and there is a big variety of teachings - all of a very high standard.
