A practice of Adaptability - Power (Core Strength) Vinyasaby Martine Ford
Join in a full length Power (Core Strength) Vinyasa Class aiming to be more adaptable on and off the yoga mat. Filmed during another lockdown in NSW Australia, being willing to ‘let go’, sometimes even grieving unmet expectations or ideas of how things ‘should be’ is a practice towards adaptability.
In this class you will learn the benefits and gifts of ‘now-sight’ (presence), going with the flow (not just in our vinyasa) & gaining flexibility of body, mind and spirit. Come shift your sail with the wind in Half Moon Pose (Ardha Chandrasana) and be propelled to greater depths in Standing Splits Pose (Urdhva Prasarita Eka Padasana)!
Equipment: yoga mat, yoga block/s and a yoga strap if you normally use one, a blanket and wheat eye pillow for Svasana (relaxation) if desired.
Level: Intermediate (modifications for beginners).
Warning: It is always a good idea to seek medical advice before beginning a yoga practice to see if it is safe for you, find the cause of any problem and then work within your limits, taking precautions recommended by your specialist. If you feel any pain please stop immediately.
Martine Ford first started Spirit Yoga in Port Macquarie in 2010 after a desire to share her knowledge and passion for yoga with others. After a decade, that has grown also to an appreciation of Pilates for it's ability to help re-habilitate imbalances in the body and injuries, so effectively. Of course, Barre was a natural progression as it encompasses all of her passions since the age of four to today: ballet, yoga and now Pilates!
A former professional dancer, she has a Diploma in Dance as well as numerous yoga certification in: Power Yoga, Core Strength Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Pilates (mat), Reformer Pilates, Pre & Post Natal Yoga, Kids Yoga and Yoga for Seniors (mat & chair).
Martine’s classes are powerful, playful and nurturing and you can practice a class locally, online or download one of her e-books on Amazon. She has also taught numerous classes, courses and workshops including presenting at Ekam Yoga Festival.
Martine has trained with Duncan Peak and Power Living Australia Yoga (Advanced Power Yoga), Zenergy Kids (Advanced Kids Yoga), Jo Phee (Yin Yoga), Sadie Nardini (Core Strength Vinyasa), The Yoga Institute (Pre/Post Natal Yoga), Donna Farhi (Yoga for Lower Back Pain), YMEDICA REWIND Gold: Successful Aging (Yoga for Seniors), Body Soul Wellness/Josie McKenlay (Pilates mat & Barre), Reform Fitness (Reformer Pilates).
