About the Fluid Strength Yoga Practice

The Practice

ShellFluid Strength ™ is a holistic yoga practice that focuses on rejuvenation and transformation. It develops whole-body strength, increases energy and refines self-awareness.

This practice use rhythmic movement patterns rather than traditional asana to cultivate the body. These movements are based on neuro-motor principles of functional strength. Their potency is magnified by being infused with vigorous breathing and Ayurvedic healing principles.

Emphasis in Fluid Strength is placed on developing a vital, coordinated and flexible spine in service of awakening the functional core of the body. The practice creates energy, awakens spontaneous meditation and frequently stimulates a seemingly miraculous release of pain.

“I find Fluid Strength classes a refuge w in which I find peace and at the same time a source of energy. In Faye’s classes I gain a whole new perspective on getting to know my spine and body.” Syliva Elrod

Fluid Strength uses a traditional yoga practice model of resting (savasana) between each movement. This traditional model is echoed in the modern exercise notion of interval training. The resting phase in Fluid Strength is used to cultivate deep systemic quiet and a meditative mind.

“Fluid Strength has given me a new relationship with my body & soul in a less work, more play and lightness manner. I feel less segment-ed and more connected to my core self.” Susan H.

The Fluid Strength Practice is simultaneously accessible and challenging to all levels of students. Beginning students benefit from the simplicity of the movement patterns. Highly trained people discover more refined levels of body in-telligence and fresh movement potential. Most of the movements are done lying down or sitting and can be easily adapted to individual needs.

“I came to Fluid Strength looking for a low stress, low impact way to exercise without hurting myself. The practice is both easy on my touchy system and so pleasurable to do. I have gained strength, and mobility. My posture has been transformed, and I feel more resilient.” Claudia
