Tulayoga is a journey inwards, towards your axis;
a return through sensation into union with your body and the present moment.
The name Tulayoga comes from the Sanskrit language and is a combination of the words "balance" and "union".
It brings together complementary aspects of understanding and practice from yoga, acrobatics and meditation.
Tulayoga is a one on one treatment you receive, given by a skilled practitioner in a peaceful environment.
You need no previous experience, you are not working towards ideal postures and there is nothing to achieve.
You receive. You breathe and relax as the practitioner takes you through an effortless dialogue with gravity
in which your body can open and naturally align through its own weight and in its own time.
A treatment begins with Tulamassage, a rhythmic, deep and flowing, floor based massage
that honours the natural pathways and stream lines of your body.
The practitioner releases local points of tension and begins guiding you towards a fluid and vibrant symmetry.
Receiving Tulamassage also gives you the time to take distance from your day, to relax
and enter into a trusting state of understanding and connection with yourself and the practitioner.
Following the massage you are gently lifted into the air, balanced on the hands and feet of the practitioner
and guided through a series of supported postures that flow smoothly from one directly into another,
creating an elegant meditation through movement.
The practitioner composes a unique flow of postures for you from a complete set of twenty two.
Each posture adjusts to your particular body type and flexibility,
respecting any personal limitations without forcing, encouraging a pleasurable and natural release.
Each posture has a specific action on the body and together they harmonise the endocrine and nervous systems,
lower the heart rate and blood pressure, release accumulated tension, lengthen the spine,
increase mobility and encourage a gentle and natural alignment.
Floating with your eyes closed, without external reference, being held, balanced and moved through space,
you are freed of responsibility, of your sense of direction, dimension, and notion of time.
This brings you into contact and deeper connection with the sensations and feelings at the core of your body.
Your mind slowly descends into progressively deeper conscious awareness
until both you and the practitioner enter a calm, centred and lucid state of consciousness.
Tulayoga is a profoundly transformative way of releasing mental, emotional and physical tension,
and for many people it is a unique and timeless experience.
"it is, hands down, the best yoga experience I have ever had"
"A unique and sacred moment that reunifies my body, my heart and my spirit."
"A developmental experience that created tremendous clarity and inspiration."
"Tulayoga allows you to plunge into the present moment
and to evolve in a space without dimensions."
"Tulayoga is one of the most calming and restorative experiences I have had in a long time."
"Tho entirely passive, I felt I was one half of an exquisite dance.
The overall feeling was one of pure harmony."
Helena Bonham Carter
"I was lulled into a meditative state that felt like lucid dreaming."
