"Yoga allows you to discover a sense of wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you are constantly trying to fit broken pieces together" ~B.K.S. Iyengar.
What is yoga?
The Indian sage Patanjali is believed to have collated the practice of yoga into the Yoga Sutras around 2,000 years ago. The word yoga, comes from the Sanskrit word yuj meaning to yoke or bind and is often interpreted as 'union'. Today most people practicing yoga are engaged in the physical element, traditionally aimed at building the strength, flexibility and stamina required to be seated on the floor for long periods of meditation. A physical yoga practice involves moving through a sequence of postures with the breath, including forward bends, back bends, balances and inversions.
The Fix approach to yoga
At Fix we know that a regular yoga practice builds strength and flexibility, which are key to maintaining optimum movement and function and preventing injury. Yoga also helps to strengthen the mind - body connection and teaches you to still the mind, something all of us in London can use!
A focus on sound alignment are at the heart of our approach, which is why many of our teachers are also experienced sports massage therapists, with excellent anatomical knowledge, able to guide you through a well rounded yoga practice.
Join us at Fix East Village for a full timetable of yoga and Pilates classes. If you have an injury, would like to work on something specifically, or are completely new to either practice, you may like to book in for a 1:1 session which can be individually tailored to your needs.
Unfortunately, due to the beautiful yet minute size of the London Fields clinic, classes are only available to East Village!
