Erin Harding knows first hand the healing benefits of a regular Kaiut Yoga Practice. She considers it a cornerstone in her three year recovery from chronic Lyme disease. After years of battling her lyme and a busy full life including: equestrian sports, skiing & biking (that maybe weren’t so kind to the body) Kaiut has proved to be a practice for life and is easily integrated into the busiest of schedules. After developing her personal practice for 3 years and participating in workshops with founder Francisco Kaiut, Erin signed on to the instructor training in Toronto, ON Canada. Francisco was asked at her first teacher training, "What is the end result of this practice?" His response was simple...."Joy!" Having a body that allows us to do what we want to do, when we want to do it, leads us to joy. While Erin considers herself an unlikely yogi, she has always been passionate in her pursuit of the most joyous life possible! Erin has been a regular at Body Dynamics for the past two years so bringing her passion for The Kaiut Yoga Method, was a natural fit. In September she will receive her 300- hour Kaiut Yoga Certification through Kaiut Yoga International.
Erin instructs the following:
Kaiut Yoga is all about biomechanical health (or said another way, your freedom of movement). It has been designed to work through chronic pain and injuries, general aches and stiffness, and work for the inflexible, hyper flexible and the aging body.
Unlike most yoga that stretches muscles in extraordinary ways, Kaiut Yoga works from the joints. As such, it has a dramatic impact in countering the harmful effects of modern living - where most of us sit most of the the day - as well as the harmful impact to our bodies of consistent movement patterns such as frequent running or cycling, playing a certain sport for years, or our compensating behaviors for old sports or other injuries.
Kaiut Yoga us about maintaining or returning the body to optimal structure and functionality. It's about freedom of movement, physical system and energy flow. It's about keeping us as healthy, mobile and pain free as possible for as long as possible. With more freedom of body comes freedom of mind. It's about a better quality of life.
