Why is every class different?
Our mind and muscles work from memory. When we see or hear a direction we
re-create something we have done before with limited thought and awareness. Once we have arrived in the pose we then make adjustments to make it 'correct.'
In life we do so many things without thinking, looking or feeling, these actions become habitual. CHUDOGRAPHY YOGA seeks to break this habitual cycle challenging the mind and muscle connection. Working in this way helps distract the body from its known restriction, builds neural connections, improves coordination, adds variety, improves efficiency, muscle engagement and mobility.
Yoga is also fantastic for down regulating our nervous systems helping us to calm and release embodied stress and trauma.
In real life we do not move and stretch through traditional yoga poses, we move through awkward and uncoordinated ways and CHUDOGRAPHY YOGA explores this by taking traditional poses and moving through them, changing the focus, adding twists, varied arm, leg and foot placements and seamlessly linking poses into a flowing sequence. There is time to think about dinner or about hanging out the washing or your very cute kitten. You have to stay present in the moment, with your mind and your body and that's a gift.
