Inspired by Max Stroms Inner Axis

Breath based fusion of yoga postures leading to slower paced flows, synchronising with the breath enabling you to adapt, move, breath in tune with your body. As we move in a controlled way it allows focus on our alignment for a safer, stronger and deeper practise. The result should always be that we create length and space in the body, achieving that in a safe and supported way, using muscle energy and core stability to protect the joints.

The verbal cues used are a modern and intelligent approach to yoga. Utilising anatomy, physiololgy, science and with the western body in mind, they can be a gateway to life long self exploration.
