"The emphasis is on fun not austerity, you can do as little or as much as you like. There is no competition or rigid rules, only paying attention to your feelings and open breathing are essential to the practice" – David Sye
Yogabeats™ has remained totally without rigid form or restrictions, experimental and spontaneous, just like jazz or any other free form art. It openly encourages the practitioner to deeply explore their own physical and psychological boundaries. What is understood within this practice will directly impact upon the individual’s perception of life itself.
The magic of Yogabeats™ can never be fully understood in any way other than in its participation, because then the lines between the idea and the experience dissolves into a mind blowing feast of all the senses
Yogabeats™ is more than just Yoga, it is pure fun, a practice driven by music and rhythms. Unapologetically sexy, empowering and provocative, leaving you higher than a kite and flying for the rest of the week.
Yogabeats™ is yoga with a difference. The yoga is an eclectic mix of styles designed to accommodate all levels of fitness and ability. Rather than using fixed postures. Yogabeats™ uses “micro-moves”. These are continuous movements which do not lock off the muscles or disrupt the blood flow and increase flexibility. These micro-moves originated with David observing how children were unable to hold fixed static postures, the conundrum that became apparent was who in fact was the teacher, and at this point David began to adopt and implement the shifting movements within his own practice with startling results and benefits, which are now supported by physiotherapists and body workers.
Yogabeats™ combines classic mobile yoga postures with the latest rhythmic and ambient world music. This involves a slow warm up section, the 1st half of the practice is designed to soften up the human ego, without austerity or force, but primarily by allowing, and fun, and asking the body itself for permission to “let go,” followed by a more intense second section, partner work and meditation.
Yogabeats™ engages all of your physical senses and provides a natural high and feelings of joy in the body. It creates tremendous vitality, balance and flexibility regardless of size, age or experience.
The Yogabeats ™High. While constant aerobic acitivities lower one’s immune system and stress the body – Yogabeats™ boosts the body’s homeostasis immensly benefiting blood pressure, pulses, physical and cerebral responses – way past the point that mere exercise requires or can achieve. Yogabeats evolved around the original agenda of Yoga; to create a natural “peak experience” or “high” in the body/mind continuum by clearing the stresses and tensions that accumulate, and which in turn returns the practitioner to a blissful equity and balance.
