A Yoga Enhancement Therapy
See yoga students' testimonials
I began my journey with yoga in early 2001 and have
become a devoted practitioner. At the time I had no idea how these
two ways of working with the body, mind and spirit were connected.
But the more I practiced and learned, it became clear to me the
undeniable relationship between Yoga and Spiral Release Bodywork
As I began to work with other yoga practitioners
they would report back about how their practice had changed. They
were able to move into new asanas much easier and deeper. Recovery
from injury was accelerated and noticeable changes occurred in
their understanding and connection to their body.
This was a revelation for me. Here was the perfect
marriage of two very different approaches that promote the opening
of the body and growth of the individual .
We all deal with openings in the body that can cause
pain, slow us down and often have a great negative impact on our
lives. Letting go is not always easy but a necessary part of change.
Having support during this time can make the transition much easier.
Here are a few ways SRB can help:
- Address a specific challenge with a specific asana(s)
- Accelerate opening and flexibility in the body
- Eliminate and reduce pain
- Strengthen the spiritual connection
Yoga is practiced for many different reasons, such
as exercise, to overcome a physical challenge or improve flexibility.
For a growing number it is a spiritual practice. Whatever it may
be for you, SRB can enhance and accelerate the benefits of your
yoga practice. Allowing you to understand your body in a new way
and to make the practice deeper.
"Even though at first I was skeptical, Tim's work
has had an exceptional effect on my yoga practice. I'll just describe
one of the many instances where he was the catalyst for an opening.
I had been working on getting my head to touch the floor in Prasarita
Padottanasana for the best part of 7 years, to no avail. In plain
English, that is the wide legged standing forward bend (http://www.yogajournal.com/poses/693_1.cfm).
When I told Tim that, he started working on my legs, focusing on
the hamstrings. About a week later, I managed to touch my head
on the floor. Tim's work took a few days to percolate, but it had
a profound effect in opening my hamstrings."
Ashtanga yoga teacher
"I am a 61 year old male practicing Ashtanga yoga
for three years. I use my yoga practice and body work to
change the results of a life of poor posture and poorly managed
stress. I have found Spiral Release bodywork valuable in two
1. The physical opening that yoga creates is enhanced by Spiral Release
bodywork. As I find new areas of my body opening in my yoga practice I
direct Tim to further open these areas. This noticeably speeds the
physical changes. Sometimes the reverse is also true. I find new
openings as a result of Spiral Release bodywork and expand them further in
my yoga practice.
2. When I have pain as a result of my yoga practice (or life) Spiral
Release bodywork is a very effective way for me to move out the pain and continue
my yoga practice (and life) without pause."
