Want to start exercising but not sure where to start?
Smart yogi proprioceptive elements is a set of simple exercises that help you learn to feel your body and to control your muscles. You don't need a gym to do these exercises, all you need are moments at a time, and some space to stand.
If you have trouble getting out of your head, these proprioceptive exercises offer a simple way to become present.
Most breathing exercises help you to become present by focusing on feeling (and controlling) the muscles that you breathe with. With the exercises in Smart yogi proprioceptive elements, you focus on feeling and controlling muscles in general. You practice being present while learning to feel your body at the same time.
Want to fast-track the acquisition of body awareness? Smart yogi proprioceptive exercises can be done anywhere you have room to stand. Waiting for a latte, or waiting for a significant other to get ready? Do some proprioception exercises and your time isn't wasted.
Smart yogi proprioceptive exercises offer you a positive way of dealing with waiting. Each time you have to wait becomes an opportunity to better learn your body.
As you improve body awareness, you can then apply that body awareness in anything you do, whether it is yoga or some other activity where you are using your body.
With smart yoga pe, you get streaming access to over 150 videos, each focusing on a single exercise. These exercises are designed to help you learn your body. Once you've learned them, you don't need the videos.
Get a taste of all of the exercises, then practice the ones that you need the most. Or practice the body awareness you gain from these exercises in the context of yoga poses or any other activity that you are doing.

How many exercises per day?
You can focus on between 3 to 5 exercises per day, practicing when you have the time.
Each exercise helps you to feel your body, and, once you can feel that body part, it's like learning to ride a bike, difficult to forget. That being said, you may find that some exercises you need to practice more than others.
Pick and choose the exercises you need the most
Once you've learned and practiced all of the exercises, you'll have a better feel for your body. You'll then be able to use that awareness in anything that you do.

About me and these exercises
I've been teaching with a focus on body awareness for over 12 years. (I've been teaching for over 20 years in total). I work with a variety of students, mainly everyday people, and these exercises have been developed from teaching people with a wide range of experience. I'm constantly improving the way I teach body awareness, and so when I find easier ways, I update the exercises accordingly. Often, it's simply a case of reorganizing the order in which I teach the exercises and the accompanying pdf includes tips for varying the order in which you do the exercises if you run into problems.
The pdf includes my email address, so if you do have trouble learning particular exercises, you can always ask me.
(Note, the pdf is included as a quick guide, the exercises themselves are recorded as videos.)
