*"About this yoga . . .The emphasis is not on achieving postures but using them to undo tension
and find integration. The practice is an ongoing exploration of the relationship between the parts
of the body and between our movements and the breath, the ground and the space around us.
Gradually a new network of muscles is brought into use. Then our movements come from the
spine and bring us back to the spine and the whole body pulls together. We train our attention
so that we can feel more, impose less, and allow the intelligence of the body to reveal itself." sophy hoare
