What is Awakening Yoga Style?
Awakening Yoga is a modified Vinyasa style created by Patrick Beach and Carling Harps.
It focuses on specific movement patterns that will strengthen the body through mobility.
This approach brings movement into the hips and therefore allows it to open easily with a lot of squat, hip & spine rotations.
Through unique movements, the body develops a pattern that allows it to strengthen in a short time period.
Traditional vinyasa San-Saturation A Y B are modified from the traditional one incorporating squads instead of folding hip compression, shoulder stability, core activation, and spinal openness allowing the lower back to gain mobility.
When I first learned the style I right away fell in love cause my body in a very short time became stronger. My flexibility and my active mobility got better. I was able to strengthen parts of the body that was never pointed in the traditional vinyasa style that I used to practice for many years.
It brings awareness to the body on how to move in space with intelligent sequences that target specific muscle groups.
This style is also very focused on hands on the floor and starting to wake up and develop a healthy arm balance practice.
Hands-on the floor is a very important part of vinyasa-style yoga. Placing the hands on the floor in the awakening style does a really good job of incorporating the spine, the core, and intelligent and functional folding hips into the equation.
