FREESTYLE FITNESS YOGA - WHAT IS IT?

Freestyle Fitness Yoga (FFY) is a contemporary approach to yoga that mixes traditional yoga postures, stretches and balances with fitness principles.
Whereas traditional yoga tends to combine both the physical and spiritual experience, in Freestyle Fitness Yoga we concentrate on the physical aspect, using yoga postures that endorse strength, stability and increase flexibility.

Freestyle Fitness Yoga is designed to get the very best out of everyone,
including complete beginners and display a constant change in performance.
We use a synchronisation of movement, breathing and focus and you should
expect to see an improvement in your flexibility and strength within 8 weeks.
You will learn how to move through the postures more effectively and efficiently,
improving your posture, self awareness and confidence. Sessions conclude with a
short period of relaxation and meditation, allowing you to find an equilibrium state
in body and mind.

BENEFITS OF A WELL BALANCED STRETCH PROGRAMME

  • Enhanced physical fitness
  • Enhanced ability to learn and perform skilled movements
  • Increased mental and physical relaxation
  • Enhanced development of body awareness
  • Reduced risk of injury to joints, muscles and tendons
  • Reduced muscular tension
  • Increased suppleness

Freestyle Fitness Yoga specifically targets flexibilty, stability and strength. It is a total body
programme where flexibility is often the weakest link. When regularly performed on both sides of the body, we aim to identify and work to improve upon areas of imbalance; these are usually the result of poor posture and overuse. Classes will include the following components:

  • Sun salutations
  • Joint mobility and range of motion
  • Standing postures
  • Seated and/or lying postures
  • Relaxation

Classes are usually 45 - 60 minutes. Want to know more? Please get in touch - I welcome all enquiries!
