The YogaFio® Method was created to support practitioners in a wide variety of holistic well-being practices which include, but are not limited to yoga. The YogaFio® principles are designed to support practitioners whole-being: body, mind, heart, and soul.

YogaFio® is a yoga and wellness method that is designed to be just right for you — supporting YOUR individual needs and goals — even in group practices. We are here to support your holistic well-being: body, mind, heart, and soul.

It is designed to help support people in their everyday lives — whether that be good everyday functional movement and/or athletic performance.
While it can be used to support athletic and fitness enhancement and for personal growth, it’s primary purpose is to:
• meet people where they are,
• to help them feel empowered where they are, and then
• to help them decide what really matters as they may set goals for progress if desired.
The YogaFio® movement principles are based on Functional Anatomy, Alignment and Action.

YogaFio® is an integrated modality which incorporates practices from many disciplines in order for students to practice in a truly holistic way. Personal practices should honor their multi-dimensional being-ness: body, mind, heart, and soul. While spirituality is referenced, it holds the principal of personal optimization. Spiritual components ask students to seek for themselves the wisdom that dwells within them — rather than to ask them to prescribe to some external idea of what spirituality is — or should be. This integrated and holistic approach allows the method to serve the practitioners as they are now — and as they evolve.
The YogaFio® method seeks to provide optimal practices and help practitioners to personalize and optimize those practices for their own specific needs and goals. With a set of founding principals, the YogaFio® method leaves plenty of room to adapt to new findings, breakthroughs, information, understanding, and inspiration. At the heart of the method is an intention to help EACH individual student optimize their practices whether practicing in private or group sessions.

What Makes Us Different From Other Yoga Styles
We are careful here to not put other forms of yoga down by pointing out some of the things we do differently. With respect, many forms of yoga are based primarily on tradition and not necessarily adapted to meet evolving scientific discovery. YogaFio® applies the latest exercise science industry recommendations so that health and well-being are prioritized over any aspect of proper performance of a pre-determined form. As the focus is on personalized anatomy, alignment, and balanced action, modifications and variations are encouraged rather than pre-described postural benchmarks. Students are not expected to perform postures to some pre-determined “perfect” or “optimal exterior” form.
