Interoception Through Myofascial Release
2 -Hour Masterclass with Tiggy
Through this two-hour masterclass with Tiggy, you will learn how to develop your yoga practice so that it activates your parasympathetic nervous system in such a way that you rest better, strengthen your immune system and hone your sense of interoception. The workshop will use yoga flows based on western-informed, holistic anatomy as well as a yoga technique known as Slings, a myofascial-based training concept which aims for movement efficiency, enhanced resilience and the activation of the body's self-healing powers. The movements and flows in these classes will promote dynamic stability, functional strength and movement ease, along with tissue elasticity, glide, adaptability and responsiveness. The framework of the workshop is based on Slings, a myofascial-based training concept.
What is Interoception?
Interoception is the ability to sense the internal state of your body. Through interoception, we move beyond the awareness of what is happening to the physical body on the outside, and towards awareness of internal organs, bones and tissues. We become more aware of the internal health of our bodies by sensing the immune and nervous systems. Yoga can be practiced in a way that develops our interoception, sometimes referred to as our eighth sense.
This class is suitable for:
Beginners who would like to develop their practice in a deeper way
Experienced yoga practitioners who would like to make your practice more efficient
Students who would like to understand any longstanding movement or posture patterns that have been causing imbalances or chronic pain
Anyone interested in using yoga to connect to and improve the internal health of their bodies
Date and Time:

12pm to 2pm

Its philosophy, training principles and exercises are compatible with a broad variety of movement modalities.
The overall aim is to enhance structural balance and radiant health through movement.
The long-term training goals are optimized movement efficiency, enhanced resilience and the activation of the body's self-healing powers.
Dynamic stability, functional strength and movement ease are promoted along with tissue elasticity, glide, adaptability and responsiveness.
Refined movement differentiation and awareness improve coordination and psychosomatic wellbeing.
System communication within the body is fine-tuned and clear body language encouraged.
The progressive step-by-step approach of the training allows everybody to practise on her and his own skill level.

Tiggy has been practicing and studying yoga since 1995. Her yoga explorations have led her through various styles including Ashtanga, Iyengar, Anusara, and Synergy Yoga, and she holds a 350-hour yoga teacher training certificate from a Yoga-Alliance-registered teacher training program.
Born in England and raised in Dubai and Perth, Tiggy is now nomadic across Australia and South East Asia.
Her style of vinyasa yoga is based on modern western biomechanics, buddhist mindfulness, and movements that promote the body’s myofascial system. She aims for it to accessible, challenging and centering.
Tiggy draws on varied life experiences that includes tour leading around the world and film shoots in Afghanistan. Her varied life experiences help Tiggy relate to yoga students from all walks of life, and help her transmit the essential teachings of yoga in a way that is clear, and (hopefully!) fun.
