Coggins Yoga is a dynamic, powerful and strengthening yoga designed to increase endurance, stamina, aid flexibility, rid the body of minor defects and induce self healing. It consists of elements of yoga from all the main styles (Iyengar, Ashtanga, Hatha etc) and the teachers approach requires you to focus your mind and raise your conciousness to a higher level in order to unblock the channels within the body so that the vital energy can flow throughout your being. Once this has been achieved, the mind, body and breath need to be unified as one.
Static poses are held with precision for set time periods which may vary depending on the asanas being adopted. The rhythmic motion between specific static and dynamic asanas allow for synchronisation of the breath in a non-religious meditative practice which unites mind, body and spirit. Regular practice of Coggins’ unique yoga style is effective in increasing a sense of well-being and vitality and can be used therapeutically in the healing of physical trauma as alignment is restored. As fitness training, it allows development of strength, mobility, stability, stamina, and muscle definition, whilst reducing stress and increasing mental awareness. Restoring physical health and pursuing a path of spiritual development became Harold Coggins’ way of life having enabled him successfully to heal his own body of various defects which resulted from severe physical trauma in his childhood.
