THE DYNAMIC YOGA TRAINING METHOD

The Dynamic Yoga Training Method is a systematic and powerful methodology of somatic self enquiry inviting deep intimacy, acceptance, trust and delight by way of the intelligence of your own body. It is suitable for everyone, no matter your experience, age, strength or flexibility.

Dynamic Yoga makes you feel good. In your body and in your mind. Not just on the surface, but deep down. Not just while doing it, but afterwards too. Soft rhythmic movements synchronised with the breath fully harness the mobiity of the body to awaken and energise it. Focussed sensitivity to sensation quietens and clarifies the mind, so that a deep intimacy with body, mind and spirit becomes possible without demanding extremes of strength and flexibility, and they all become able to express themselves freely and fully. This invites you to spiritual integration by way of functional, structural and energetic integrity.

The core of the method is cultivating deep, lucid intimacy with the intelligence of body, mind and consciousness by way of sensitivity to the sensations being generated by the intelligence of your body, moment, by moment, breath by breath, action by action. Yoga posture practice is presented with a deep grounding in the Yogasutras of Patanjali and focusses on the awakening of intelligence, rather than the development of skill or power.

We use movement as the most reliable way to cultivate the neuromuscular pathways of integrity upon which safe and effective yoga posture praxis depends. This begins as a systematic sensitisation of all the motor joints, and simultaneous recalibration of all the motor muscles, that takes place within the fertile context of xandranamaskar and its component ullolas (repeated, rhythmical movements). It leads by way of structural integrity from strengthening the core structural muscles to the release of the breath and a deep internalisation of awareness.

The vinyasakrama of Dynamic Yoga (the training method) is unique for each individual. Once structural integrity has beeen established there is no predictable end to the possibilities for any individual practitioner, there being thousands of classical yoga postures and modifications that can be used to explore and express the capabilities and nature of the body. Based, however, on what you can feel, rather than what you can do, the Dynamic Yoga Training Method is an irresistible invitation to the total trust that deep and rewarding intimacy with the depths and subtleties of the bodimind provides.
