What People Say About Us!

Eleni Vrahimis, Physiotherapist 

I attended a two-day class with TillyLou on how to best use the Buttafly for therapeutic purposes and in yoga class. I found her to be very informative and passionate about the use of Buttafly Effect and its ability to help people.

I’ve gone on to use it successfully with patients suffering from low back pain and specifically coccydynia.

Our lessons were on Zoom and I found her teaching to be clear and the two days were paced beautifully.

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 products, but we would learn 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 are 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.
As it was, the days flew by and I am looking forward to doing more.

I love introducing new clients of mine to the Buttafly… What it does in releasing spinal tension for a lot of clients suffering from back pain is phenomenal.
