Tutor Bio

Gary is a well known, highly respected teacher of Yoga with over 25 years of experience in movement physical training, anatomical study and bodywork practices.. He has lectured extensively on the anatomy of Yoga in the UK, Europe and America. He founded Natural Bodies movement & education, dedicated to teaching, training and encouraging kinaesthetic awareness, ease of movement and efficient body use. Gary's yoga background is based on the work and approach of Vanda Scaravelli which was not so much about executing postures but cultivating the conditions that allow the body’s natural intelligence to awaken. 

Aims of the Day

This event will be looking at the impact of ageing on the human body. Gary will describe the changes in physiology of joints, muscles and connective tissue within our bodies as we age. He will explain how these changes affect movement and flexibility and will guide students through various movements and postures to maintain flexibility and prevent muscle loss. 
Gary will offer strategies for students to enable them to continue or take up new ventures so that as we live longer we live life fully. 

Learning Outcomes

To understand how Yoga can slow the ageing process down by maintaining flexibility and preventing muscle loss.

To explore how suggested movements and practices can help an ageing body. 

To develop strategies to use in teaching to support those yoga students in their golden years.
