What is BONE YOGA?
Bone Yoga focuses on our skeletal system, bones, joints and ligaments and fascia. This includes the energetic and emotional vibrations that are held within the bones and tissues of the body.
Bone Yoga uses gentle movement sequences that focus on and engage the joints. Particular importance is placed on the range of motion of the joints which is determined by the architecture of the joint itself and the tension and vibration in the ligaments.
The yoga and gentle somatic engagements move within the easeful range of motion of our joints. For many this will give a new dimension of safety and stability to yoga.
The slow, mindful engagement in Bone Yoga allows the opportunity to feel and adjust the way we move and introduce clearer patterns of movement in the body. This has the potential to change default physical and emotional patterns. Bone Yoga engages, stimulates and activates every bone, joint, tendon, ligament and major muscle group.
Bone Yoga can be used therapeutically on its own and in conjunction with other yoga and physical/energetic practices.
Bone Yoga can help to develop your relationship with your body mechanics and functioning, assist with postural alignment and help with ease of movement.
Bone Yoga is mindful, restful and restorative, and has been beautifully described as "Yoga from the inside out."
Bone Yoga as an exploration and an opportunity to discover our bone energy through working with the breath, mind and movement. Bone Yoga develops our relationship with our core self held in our bones.
"Bone Yoga is a real treat to learn and practice. It is so mindful and comfortable on the body that it will suit everyone of any ability. Despite not doing much, nor stretching at all (which is a welcome and unusual approach in Yoga), I felt completely released and aligned each time after practicing. I particularly enjoyed the reset sequence, the slow asanas, and the meditations on our Inner Resource and Heart Felt Desire. It enhanced my appreciation of anatomy and Zero Balancing as well. Thank you Paul for bringing this to us".
