Introducing your practice partner for life, Sky Styx!
Updated: May 25, 2018
As the creator of Sky Styx, Christopher Baxter says "One of the most powerful keys to longevity is Movement. Reaching, turning, bending, sweeping, packing, dancing, hiking or engaging in any regular, rhythmic movement minimizes the breakdown of the body and maximizes it's magnificent potential for well-being---year after decade."
The Sky Styx methodology is designed to safely support us to move, to invigorate our bodies and minds with wholesome fun even as we reclaim flexibility, unkink our posture, strengthen our core, uplift our attitude and recharge our life.
Sky Styx is like having a personal yoga assistant. They allow you to safely explore the current potential of your body; they give you support to press down and lift up, lightening the load when bending your knees; they act as another limb during balancing; they bring easy alignment to your spine---relaxing your back and neck in ways you never thought possible; they strengthen core and extremities without straining joints, tendons, ligaments or muscles; they help unwrap chronic tightness in the fascia; they serve as a visual reminder to stay present, focused, relaxed and curious.
Christopher created this methodology for individuals over 50, however, it has proven effective and fun for all ages. Whether it's someone new to yoga, the active athlete, the golfer, the young and curious or just anyone that is human. So if you are reading this, it's for you!
I was first introduced to this methodology last fall in a workshop at Blossom Yoga Studio here in Laramie, WY. The alignment, opening and expansion is so refreshing. It's what your body has been craving for so long, but didn't even know it.
In March 2018, my wonderful friend, Marla and I went to Florida to participate in the Sky Styx Teacher Training. It was fun to learn a new methodology and build relationships with others in the class.
This summer, Marla and I will be teaching Sky Styx Yoga at the La Bonte Park here in Laramie, WY. The class is scheduled rom 5:00-6:30 pm beginning June 5th. It will be donation-based. Suggested donation is $10, less if you can't, more if you can.
If you have a body, you can participate in Sky Styx Yoga. No prior yoga experience necessary.
So how does a this class work? We have enough Sky Styx and yoga mats for approximately 12-15 individuals. Sky Styx are wooden staffs. There are four standard lengths based on average span from finger tip to finger tip.
Please arrive at the class at least five minutes ahead of time so we can get you a Sky Styx which is the appropriate length for you.
We would love for you to experience this methodology. Come join us and share this post with your friends so they can join us as well!
