How does FFY differ from traditional Yoga?
FFY concentrates on movement, breathing, transitions from one posture to another and progression. There is no dogma, chanting or use of Sanskrit terms as postures are prescribed from a modern fitness perspective. We adopt a mindful method of teaching that reflects the Buddhist traditions of Yoga in a more contemporary and social environment. We avoid prescription of extreme postures that exceed optimal ranges of motion in favour of individual strengths and performance. During FFY moves and postures can be sequenced together to the beat of the music making transitions seamless and graceful.

We fuse traditional Yoga postures with contemporary Fitness principles allowing you to own your practice and release the modern Yogi.

You will achieve personal peace and perfection through your workout with FFY.
CrossFit Kids (date to be confirmed this month)
CrossFit Kids is a method for teaching CrossFit to children ages 3-18. Based on the principle of Mechanics, Consistency and then Intensity, CrossFit Kids emphasizes good movement throughout childhood and adolescence. Consistently good mechanics translates to physical literacy, enhanced sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Not only that, a vast body of research indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means consistent adherence to the program can have a positive impact on children’s academic achievement.
CrossFit Kids is to be BIG FUN for all ages. Broad-Inclusive-General fun. Fun means we provide an active alternative to sedentary pursuits, which means less childhood obesity and all-around better health for our children. Further, the needs of second graders and high-school “varsity” wrestlers differ by degree and not kind; the program is scalable for any age or experience level and accounts for the varied maturation status one can find in a class full of kids. CrossFit Kids is designed to be minimalist; and often requires little or no equipment up until the age of around 12, allowing a wide array of socioeconomic groups an opportunity to be physically fit and physically active throughout their lives.
