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.
