Davy Jones: Dad, Ashtangi, Green Party Candidate and Founder of The Brighton Yoga Foundation

By | Uncategorized

Davy Jones has been teaching yoga for ten years and practising for eighteen. He is chair of the Brighton Yoga Foundation / Festival and was the Green Party’s parliamentary candidate for Brighton Kemptown in the last two elections. Here is his story…..   There is a famous Zen Buddhist saying: ‘When the student is ready, the master appears’. How true for me! If you had told me 25 years ago that I would be a yoga teacher from 2007, I would have simply laughed. Back then I was working at a senior level at the Audit Commission in London, living in Hackney in a long-term relationship with two daughters….

By | Uncategorized

  Where it all began… I started practicing Yoga six years ago to give myself some me time and help me through a tough time.  I started practicing to some Youtube videos, first only occasionally and then more regularly.

The World of Yoga Beyond Asana For many people today, the word ‘yoga’ conjures up images of lycra-clad students in an exercise class bending themselves into seemingly impossible shapes. While there are many physical and mental benefits to stretching, balancing, strength building and breathing mindfully, this represents just one small part of the vast world of yoga.   The word yoga, meaning to “yoke” or “unite”, first surfaced in around 1500 BC in India. Over the next few thousand years, many classic yogic texts were written, describing various philosophical approaches to living that lead to freedom from suffering. One of…

Welcome to my very first blog and thank you for taking the time to read this and get to know me a little better! I first came here as a student and immediately fell in love with this beautiful calm space, with a lovely friendly community of teachers and students.   Although I’m originally from London, I moved down to Brighton a couple of years ago and I’m so glad to be able to call this vibrant (and slightly wacky!) city of ours my home. There’s nothing better than living by the seaside, going walking in the South Downs, and all the opportunities to practice yoga…

Moving Stretch what is it?

By | Uncategorized

First of all let us take a look at what Moving Stretch actually is – Moving Stretch is a form of resistance stretching which is unique, differing from other stretching techniques, as we concentrate on the actual movement of the stretch while engaging the muscle throughout the whole range of motion. By resisting against the stretch we are not only engaging the muscle, we are also engaging the fascia. Fascia is the dense connective tissue that runs throughout our body making us the shape in which we are. Ideally the fibres in the fascia should be aligned but these fibres…

By | Uncategorized

The magic of Autumn is powerfully present in the exquisite shades of earthly colours angling in the beautiful sunlight that starts to shy away. The Earth is on its progress to gathering what is left from summer time, harvesting the fruits that had been ripening and letting go of everything else which is unnecessary in order to rest in winter and renew itself in spring. In Chinese medicine, the notion of inter connectivity between humans and nature is the foundation for its success and endurance as a healing art for over 5000 years. There are strong correspondences within the human…
