Love yourself inside out

If plugging yourself into technology or the latest App is paramount to a good workout, you might find yourself jogging away from the 'feel good inside out' health trends that are beginning to emerge in 2019. Technology driven fitness fads are making way for a more simple, slower movement to exercise which address both the inner and outer body. Exercise which combines body and soul. A philosophy which lies at the heart of rewilding.

According to an article in Forbes, in human terms, rewilding means allowing the human animal to return to its natural state—moving, resting and eating in conjunction with our circadian rhythms, without relying on apps or [fitness monitors] to tell us when and where. Natural movement forms a big part of the rewilding regime putting the emphasis on our own instinct. Rewilding seems to form the basis of Wild Fitness; a lifestyle approach founded by Tara Wood in 2001 which addresses the malaise our modern lifestyles cause, such as stress and chronic injuries.

As our lives have become more sedentary and we've become more attuned to living inside instead of out in the open air, we've forgotten how to listen to what our bodies are telling us. Wild Fitness is the practice of listening to your body and mind and responding to instinctual needs to move naturally and for deep relaxation. According to Tara its philosophy will help anyone rediscover the joy and transformative power of their own natural potential.

The saying goes, if you don’t use it, you lose it. Wild Fitness explores elements of flexibility, locomotion and elastic potential energy to give you the skills to move effortlessly and gracefully in natural environments. Inspiration is taken from how wild animals move and aim to improve posture and body awareness.

The GYROTONIC® method, similar to rewilding creates an environment and the space to tap into your emotional zone, allowing you to shift both physical and emotional energy. It addresses the entire person, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and improving strength, and movement efficiency. Gyrotonic clients end up more balanced, reflexive and prepared for anything life may throw their way. The body is taught to move in synchrony so it works in harmony with everyday activity.
