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 my advice… “practise FFY to move more effectively and efficiently, with better posture and self-awareness”

 

Enhance our feeling of wellbeing

download (1)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

20091024000000d5a4d5a84570bf880cc150cca7f0f8eaMix 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

No membership required – Each session costs £7.00, just turn up and pay on the night.

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.

Yoga Dreams

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 FFY is taught Nationwide by instructors who integrate traditional Yoga postures into the language of fitness with all the fun of group exercise.

FFYoga 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, FFYoga champions your skills and offers an understanding of your limitations.

You will achieve personal peace and perfection through your workout with FFYoga.

 

Will you work out in FFY?

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. FFY never fails to hit the spot!

Will you relax in FFY?

The peaceful environment of this class allows everyone to work in their own zone which is inevitably relaxing. FFY 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 FFY 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 FFY 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 an FFY class you can be who you want to be without intimidation or conforming to the boundaries set by a specific style of Yoga practice.
