Review by yoga teacher Neil Baird, Nov 2020
The training with TillyLou was time well spent in many ways. Although at first, I couldn’t imagine how we would spend two days on the topic, as soon as we began I realised that this was to be much more than I had expected. We were not simply going to be learning about the benefits and uses of the Buttafly yoga blocks, but we would learning from TillyLou’s experience of working with clients and students as a bodyworker, physiotherapist, healing practitioner, and yoga teacher. We came to understand through hearing her experiences and exploring for ourselves why the Buttafly is such a powerful tool.
And while in two days we could not cover anatomy in any depth, I learned a great amount about the human body in those few hours in the context of teaching yoga. We explored for ourselves, and with others in the class, about our own postural strengths and weaknesses, the individuality of our bodies, and how to support our own progress.
We worked with idea that ‘less can be more’ when the right interventions are made in the appropriate way. TillyLou taught us that if we support the body well, the body’s intelligence will allow a postural release to occur naturally. We learned that the subtlest of shifts or changes to our posture while sitting in Sukasana or lying in Savasana can have a big impact on our experience.
I think we all came to realise that too often, the fundamentals of posture can be too easily overlooked in classes, or problems even obscured by notions of what is the right way to be doing something. And of course, we learned how the simple unique design of the Buttafly can be an invaluable aid in working with our students or clients. The days flew by and I am looking forward to doing more.”
