General Information 

What is Function Yoga?

The functional approach to yoga is an approach where we prioritize what a pose should do over how it looks. We are all unique: our skeletal structure, muscular flexibility, emotional response, mental organization and psychological inclination is all unique to each of us. Our practice should express this individuality. Instead of trying to perform a pose from the outside, copying a shape, we strive to understand what the purpose of the pose is and then adapt it’s shape to our unique needs and abilities.

What You Will Learn

Anatomy

Garner indepth knowledge of fundamental anatomical principles in order to teach and adapt many of the primary yoga poses to suit every student

Asana

Understand the function of the both Yin and Vinyasa poses and how to practice them to open the way to a long-lasting, effective and fulfilling practice

Meditation

 Dive deep into the practices of mindfulness, meditation and open awareness drawn from Tantric, Taoist and Buddhist psychological teachings

Philosophy

What differentiates yoga is not so much the physical movement as the willingness to turn the awareness inwards and look at ourselves with honesty, kindness and compassion. Yoga philosophy can be immensely helpful on our road to disentangle ourselves from our unconscious behaviour patterns and supports development and growth from within.
