Yoga at Crossfit London, was always going to be different. More effective, more challenging, better taught.
Sui , our tutor, sequences classes by bringing together the benefits of mindful movement meditation and flow of Yoga and Animal Flow, combining this with latest scientific understanding of ‘anatomy trains’ meridians and fascia, getting inspiration from body-weight, calisthenics training, and Kelly Starrett’s Crossfit Mobility Certification training.
The class starts with dynamic energetic flows, linking movement with breath. Focus is on sequences to improve mobility in shoulders and hips, and sequences to build core strength. Hand balancing is sometimes included to enhance the playful challenge, always optional! A variety of techniques will be used to enhance functional flexibility and mobility training, including mobility tools (eg balls, rollers or straps), proprioceptive neural facilitation (PNF) techniques and partner work. The class will close with a guided body-scan relaxation based on mindfulness techniques. This is a fun friendly class. All levels are welcomed!
This class links so many aspects of what we do at Crossfit London together: Crossfit, Olympic weightlifting, Power lifting, Gymnastics, Tumbling, Met-Con, even rowing are all linked by mobility.
Our class combines the old, with cutting edge methodologies. An appropriate focus on meditation is exactly what many of our busy, successful clients need.
Crossfit London Yoga classes are reality checked. At least half of our class members are athletes who back flip, lift heavy weight and do amazing workouts, They need to learn genuine skills. They need to boost their performance. Mobility for them isn’t an option, its a fundamental need. They go to this class, because it delivers that. Even if you work in an office, these sessions will help you
