Therapeutic Asana, Pranayama and Meditation, Yoga for Special Needs, Injury Prevention
Flo Fenton is the director of Intouch Yoga Byron Bay, and will be your main teacher on this training. She will be teaching asana, pranayama, meditation and yoga for special needs modules, and some philosophy and anatomy classes on the residential training, and most modules on the part time training.
Due to the diverse knowledge of her teachers, Flo has a wide range of expertise in yoga. Trained by masters of Iyengar, Astanga, Satyananda and Viniyoga traditions, Flo’s focus is on finding our natural ease within the postures, and on cultivating an ever deepening awareness of the relationship between the body, the breath, and our state of mind. She teaches precise awareness of alignment in the postures, through the medium of graceful, flowing sequences in synchrony with the breath. Her style is both meditative and enlivening, balancing the active and the passive sides of our nature. As we focus within, developing the capacity to witness ourselves, the sessions themselves become a form of Yoga Therapy, which flows out into our lives beyond the class-room.
Due to Flo’s own inherited spinal instability and unusual spinal curves, she has always had a keen interest in finding optimum ways of working to produce strong and pain-free backs and hips. Flo was a highly regarded Remedial, deep-tissue and trigger-point therapy massage therapist for fifteen years, and is also a qualified Homeopath. Her skills in massage therapy and her long relationship with healing and yoga have produced a special understanding of spinal misalignment, related postural limitations, and how to work in yoga to promote optimum results.
