Gravity Yoga is a targeted mobility training method, which helps students with stiff backs, locked up hips and tight hamstrings.
Increase your flexibilty quickly, reduce stress and improve your sleep
Following 3 simple principles throughout the practice:
1. Wet Noodle
Muscles stretch best when completely relaxed. So when you stretch for flexibility you attempt to relax into the pose as much as possible.
2. Focus on 4:8 Breathing ratio
Inhale through nose to the count of 4, exhale through mouth to the count of 8. This breathing practice turns off the stretch reflex helping relieve muscle tension and turning off the parasympathetic nervous system
3. Meet or beat your static pose hold times (2-5mins)
The gating factor for flexibility training is time under passive tension - it is how long you spend in these deep poses
