It's Not Yoga is a holistic approach in getting to know ourselves while improving our sports performance. Whether it's about making strength gains in your olympic lifts, or about waking up pain-free, understanding our own mechanics gives each of us an advantage in moving through the day. Regardless of your goals, this practice is applicable to the seasoned athlete, regular person, and everyone in-between.
Merging current psychological and energetic sciences with a physiotherapeutic mobility practice also cultivates our individual aptitudes for creativity, empathy and perspective. Simply, by breaking up our tight bodies our tight minds release. Finding purpose and happiness in our lives feels important and more-often daunting. Pharmaceuticals run the world, and as more "happy" drugs dominate the medical and recreational market, what does that tell us about the people on the planet?
This program exists to inspire each individual to want to find a solution. It's Not Yoga is not your solution to becoming happy, but it is your solution to finding what does.
Stephanie Dale, Founder
After spending a decade in San Francisco as a group fitness instructor, personal trainer and mobility coach, I saw something was missing from my clients' radars. The physical portion of exercise was there, but reasons for why they were training, or what they were interested in learning, or articulating what they enjoyed was presented to me in many shapes and sizes.
My mission shifted from changing body composition percentages to redirecting my clients' internal conversations. How we speak to, and treat ourselves is often overlooked, just as often as it's blared across multiple media platforms. Establishing our individual belief systems and actively moving in directions that support them, goes hand-in-hand with tissue manipulation and expanding our perspectives. Overlooked methodologies of communication can be challenging to approach, and by exploring these avenues we can understand what makes us tick, which almost immediately begins to reflect back to us in forms of social groups and a feeling of being fulfilled.
Getting hungry for living our own lives and actively expanding our appreciation for our unique human experience, fosters community, yet builds and maintains healthy boundaries. It teaches us to take responsibility for ourselves and our methods of communication. Ignoring our bodies and what they say to us on a constant basis, alienates our brains from seeing more than our personal opinion. We become stifled, restricted, and coarse in ways we don't see, but we, or others around us can feel. So how important are the relationships with people around you? How important is it to feel fulfilled at work? How important is your internal conversation? Book a session and find out.
