Hello Matt

I loved the workshop on Saturday. I learnt so much. I felt elated after the pranayama session, really light, ready to dance. It was wonderful. Like most students I find it really hard to share in a group but I ust wanted to let you know I thought it was all wonderful and to say thank you.What an amazing way to enter into Spring.


My partner picked me up from the car park afterwards and he said that all all the "yoga archers" (because of the mat bags across the back) leaving the David Lloyd centre, were all the most smiling, most happy people he'd seen in a long while. You worked magic Matt.


Thank you a million, it felt wonderful to enter into Spring so positively.

 

Have a lovely Easter break x

 

'L' - David Lloyd Fincley - Yoga Sutra Workshop 2016

 

Hello Matt.

I just wanted to say thank you for that most inspirational workshop on Saturday.

In every respect it was excellent. 3 days later I am still 'coming down' from it, as it were. It has sealed my understanding of what Yoga really is, and given me so much to think about and to practise.

I have long been interested in philosophy, both Eastern and Western, and now now see more clearly how Yoga fits into that Eastern tradition, and how it seeks to answer life's fundamental questions as best as it can.

I have taken to my mat several times since Saturday. What's really interesting is that, straight away, my mind now tunes it to that deeper dimension.

So again, many thanks.

Steve

 

Dear Matt,

Thank you so much for the lovely retreat. Afterwards I felt as though. I'd had a weekend of rest! I am very much looking forward to the full day version, then the 3 day version, then the seven day version (one day per chakra maybe :)) ... And the daily version at home is great and will grow over time BUT there is something so special about us all being all together with you in the room to impart your wisdom. This was the first class I took since resting my collar/shoulder and this morning I woke up sore body (it's always sore in the mornings) but in a much less restricted way than usual. Wonderful!!

Thank you thank you

Om Shanti Namaste
Love

Sarah   Thank you for a truly inspirational day. I learned a lot and look forward to practicing and improving my breathing techniques - the booklet is an excellent guide by the way. I also appreciated you so honestly sharing your own experiences - it was clear how much you believe in and benefit from the techniques.

I woke up today with more energy than usual so can already see it makes a difference!

Please put me on your mailing list for retreats as I would love to try .

With love to you and Dorna.

Iain    Hi Matt. I thought I would let you know that Tina said she's finding the yoga really great in her pregnancy - she says the seated exercises we've been doing in the last two sessions have been perfect!

All the best,

Iain.


David   The yoga was great. The atmosphere during the class was light and unserious - however it was still majorly productive. The whole experience was new to us so there was a lot of laughing but Matt didn’t mind and often joined in or added to it. Because of some of the crazy practices and exercises we were asked to do, a bond formed among the group, making us feel more like a team. As well as this 'mental' benefit, there were numerous others which would in the long term lead to a squad of successful athletes. For example; in the 4 weeks I did the yoga I found I was sleeping better, giving me more energy for training. I also gained a much more positive attitude and more self confidence. In terms of physical changes, I have found my self more flexible, my core stability has improved and breathing has become stronger. This was all achieved in a short 4 weeks.

Mark    Being a bit of a control freak, I was scared to submit myself to a 90 minutes exersise of compromising positions, that I do not fully understand. But I did and joined the rest of the group, it was a very nice experience. It's like an exersise mixed with relaxation and afterwards I felt a lot more peaceful than when I began. Letting go of what you think is a silly posture is liberating and I can't imagine that anyone except Dorna could provide a better atmosphere for a "first timer" :)
I now regularly go to Dorna's Yoga classes.

      

Ben   I found yoga relaxing and the stretches allowed me to touch my toes in just 4 weeks. It also relieved stress and helped me to sleep. It gave me much more flexibility.  

Lewis   The yoga sessions were extremely enjoyable and I didn’t realize how un-flexible I really was until I took part in this. It has benefited me in that not only does it help me relax but it helps me to focus and concentrate on my breathing during racing and in everyday life. The stretches help to loosen my muscles before races and they can be completed easily at home and on the track before competitions. I would like to carry on yoga to learn more about my body and mind and ways in which I can improve my fitness.  

Kwasi   I think that yoga was good for me because it helped me take note on how I breathe whilst doing anything. Also it gave me some new ways to stretch to reduce my injuries and I think that it made me more flexible.  

James Even with only a limited number of sessions I have noticed many positive changes in my athletics because of my yoga; these being both physical and mental. Yoga has improved my overall flexibility and taken it to a whole new level. This has enabled me to increase my stride length and stay clear of injuries, which has been a problem of mine over the past few seasons. Mentally yoga had taught all of us how to stay focused both in preparation for a competition and training. This has helped my self and training partners to stay focused and concentrate on the task ahead, a tool that is essential for any athlete. Finally I have found yoga to be a great way to cross train being beneficial and also enjoyable. I have seen significant improvements in both my self and training partners since taking part in yoga and my views are shared by them all.  

Alexander I feel that we have all benefited from yoga in different ways. I personally benefited mainly in my flexibility which will help my running by lengthening my stride - consequently improving my times which has been proven by already running a PB. Yoga has also taught me how to focus on my breathing which increases my pain resilience in training and competing. A very important improvement - I have been able to get in the “zone” of a race and concentrate 100% on my race. Yoga has taught me breathing techniques and various effective stretching which I have greatly benefited from.  

 
Helen   There was another guy who was modelling balance and they were most impressed that I could already stand on one leg with the other leg out straight without falling over!  All those tree postures have obviously stayed with me!  I also managed to do a headstand!

So I just wanted to say thank you for your assistance.
 
Thanks again, take care.
