Namaste, I am Carol (Saraswati)
I have been teaching movements for 20 years. Many people stretch the wrong way by focusing on touching their toes. They round their backs and squeeze their shoulders, just to reach further with their hands. This will cause more tension and you do not increase your flexibility and mobility over time
If you are one of them, stop stretching this way.
I will guide you in a gentle yoga stretch (with modifications) that will help you to stretch effectively and tension free.
Different people have different degrees of tightness in the body. You can ask yourself these 3 different questions:
- can I sit straight on the floor with my knees stretched out in front (toes pointing upwards)?
- Can I sit straight on the floor with my legs crossed?
- How long can I sit straight on the floor with my legs crossed?
The above answers will indicate the different levels of flexibility.
You will be guided on how to release tension, improve breathing to relax body and stretch your back & hamstrings with simple props like a towel or yoga belt and block.
Frequency is an important factor in improving on your flexibility. You need to stretch properly with the correct method so that you will see result in the weeks ahead. If not, you will see very little or no result at all.
Learn the proper way of breathing so that you can relieve tension and stretch safely and effectively.
Avoid common mistakes in stretching. You will find out in the tutorials. Have a good understanding of your spine, body, muscles and joints. If you always practise with poor alignments, you will put strains in body and may even injure yourself.
Learn how to hold in the posture with proper breathing and good alignment. You must be able to breathe comfortably when you are holding. You will be guided to take longer deeper breaths.
The goal of yoga practice is to bring balance to the mind, body and spirit. Observe your mind when you are practising. You will be guided to do relaxation for the mind before starting your practice.
"I've been suffering from strong tensions in neck and shoulders for a very long time...Carol helped me in creating body awareness and taught me how proper breathing helps to release stress and body tensions. "
"When I started practising yoga and pilates with Carol, 3 years ago, I had severe lower back pain from mild scoliosis. I have since improved my posture and feel more connected to my body than I have ever been"
" I learned from her to love my body more, to see it not as static but keenly connected to the mind and the ups and downs we go through. Carol's practice has been invaluable in helping me experience first hand the importance of self-acceptance."
" I think I have found another part of me through yoga- a more peaceful, more calm version of myself and it really helps my mental health a lot. So thank you for being on this journey with me."

If you are willing to follow the specific method and practise regularly... Yes! ... it will help you because there is a proven sequence to follow to improve your flexibility. Many of my students have tried this method and felt the change. I am not naturally flexible and I understand the pain you might feel when you try to stretch. I also experienced different teaching methods from different teachers and some were not good for my body. I have a good understanding of what you need because I have helped hundreds of students over the years of teaching. The rate of change will be based on your understanding of the fundamentals and your frequency of practice. Most importantly, this online course is customised for people who have tight muscles (especially back and hamstrings).
It is not about the stretch only. As mentioned earlier, there is a sequence to the practice that you will follow. We need to learn how to release tension first before starting the yoga stretches. This is a mind and body practice. The other elements of the method are mindfulness practices like proper breathing and proper relaxation. This will help you to relax the mind. A busy mind will continue to contribute to more physical tensions. We need to approach your practice holistically so that you get long term benefits.
