Opposition in Pilates and Yoga – Newton’s Third Law meets Mindfulness


This book is the first of what will hopefully be a number of publications focussed on the 'Opposition Method'.  A method suitable for both enthusiasts and teachers alike in order to create a deeper sense of body awareness and muscle connection whilst allowing for and respecting individuality.

This guide is designed in such a way that if you do not want to read the text, you can simply look at the direction of energy (arrows) and focus on your body in order to create the most appropriate muscle activity for you.  However, I do strongly recommend reading the first few chapters on ‘Neutral Pelvis & Neutral Spine’, ‘Mindfulness’ and ‘Breathing’, which will help you to understand the method.

Each exercise or posture has text explaining the exercise or pose opposite the associated pictures. The text will guide you if you are not sure.  At the end of each section, there are ‘workouts’ for the more confident practitioner, which range in difficulty.

This is a deeper, more individual and more meaningful approach to movement.
