    Yoga
    Background:

    Eddie(maverick) encourages a yoga of contemplative exploration. Though physical in part, his practice is ultimately one of the mind and heart. It is a way of questioning. It never fixates. And it moves towards stillness. It is most essentially a practice of embodied self-reflection. For EM, poses are not answers. They are questions, and so they are approached as questions would be: with method, contemplation and an open mind. Each pose is explored simply and fully. Every movement in a class is developed practically and with attention to detail. Classes are designed with no prerequisites or levels – each class has been crafted simply as an experience. Through such classes, Maverick hopes to demonstrate and explore lessons of life’s vicissitudes. His focus is simple, practical and inquisitive. It points towards one essential question: what does well-being feel like? EM’s technique is grounded in ‘de-dogmatised’ yoga, calisthenics, bodyworks, martial arts, practical anatomy, non-sectarian meditation, Somatics and the Feldenkrais method. It is an eclectic approach crafted precisely to fit that most eclectic of questions. His intention is to help students establish clear objectives in practice, and to inspire them to move closer towards physical and mental well-being. For this purpose, he offers one quintessential piece of advice: “Practise what you enjoy and enjoy your practice; ” ~em~

    Why I practice yoga:

    Yoga is the time where I am with myself, cultivating both my mind and body with self-love and self-care.

    Why I teach yoga:

    To share my love for yoga to others and for them to discover that their body and mind are capable of so much more than they have ever imagined.

    What does “SPACE TO BE” look like to you?

    A safe space where all is welcome to be your true self and to escape life’s demands albeit for just a short moment of time.

    What does “LIVE SIMPLY” mean to you?

    Santosha or “complete contentment” has been my pillar of strength throughout my yoga journey. Through practising Santosha, I am freed from cravings and desires which in turn allows me to pursue life without fear or manipulation.
