YOGA

with Bill Wood

This way of practising isn’t so much a ‘style’ of yoga as an invitation to discover within ourselves a more natural and easeful way of working with our body and becoming more present and relaxed. 

A way of unwinding more fully and freely into our practice, using less strain or force, that takes us away from the external pursuit of physical shapes, and teaches us instead how to find the right internal qualities for our body to start releasing and realigning for itself.

A journey that’s as much a form of mindfulness as it is a physical exercise. A form of meditative movement – guided less by thought and more by what we can feel – that nurtures the embodied awareness and the inner relaxation that are the transformative heart of the yoga tradition, and the foundations of a fruitful practice.

Using yoga poses, breathing exercises, relaxation techniques and meditation, this integrative approach helps us to find more of a balance within – between strength and flexibility, vitality and groundedness, alignment and relaxation – to free up our postural habits and breathing patterns, to nourish our ability to feel more comfortable in our own skin, and to help us to become more fully in-touch with ourselves, with others, and with the world around us.

Bill holds a warm and enquiring teaching environment, that’s open to all levels of experience, with students encouraged to work in a sensitive and relaxed way, while always challenging themselves to explore their practice more deeply.
