The Art Of Movement - Yoga

Flexiseq wants to inspire people to get moving because the body, which can do seemingly impossible things, is never something to be taken for granted. The Art Of Movement series is a collection of photo essays about people who thrive upon using their joints, bodies and movement to do the things they love.

 

Tara Zinnamon has been practicing yoga since she was 18 years old. At first yoga was part of her dance training but it has since become a passion. So much so that she is now an instructor at Fierce Grace, a yoga school first established in London back in 1994. Fierce Grace pride themselves on being accessible to all levels of those looking to practice yoga, from beginners to experts. They run a variety of different classes including one specifically tailored to those feeling Stiff, Old or Broken.

 




"What I love about yoga is the looseness I feel afterwards. I love stretching and moving the body. Movement has always been a key part of my life."


 
"A lot of people believe yoga is some tall slim, girl, with a ponytail on a beach doing a ridiculously hard pose. But it’s not about being able to do those complex poses, it’s engaging your body in a way that is going to be beneficial for the rest of your life."



"I have a student who is 65 years old and I’ve never seen someone with so much energy and range of motion. She has one of the strongest practices in any of my classes. It goes to show that keeping the body active changes how you age."



"Fierce Grace offer a sense of freedom of your own movement in the classes, they also provide injury modifications. They’re unparalleled."



"I would recommend yoga to anyone. It’s not about whether or not you can touch your toes now. It’s about moving your body and stretching the body in ways to help you move better. It can be a little goal like being able to tie your shoes without having to sit down. It’s about the way you move everyday."



"Yoga has such a vast array of poses and modifications for different life stages, injuries and body types it can evolve with you. There is something for everyone in yoga."
