COGGING YOGA SYSTEM
Harold Coggins is both a Registered Senior Yoga Teacher and a Tai Chi and Kung Fu Sifu. The Coggins Yoga System was developed from his own experience and from his practice and study of Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga. Static poses are held for set time periods which may vary depending on the asanas being adopted. The rhythmic motion between specific static and dynamic asanas allow for synchronisation of the breath in a non-religious meditative practice which unites mind, body and spirit. Regular practice of Coggins’ unique yoga style is effective in increasing a sense of well-being and vitality and can be used therapeutically in the healing of physical trauma as alignment is restored. As fitness training, it allows development of strength, mobility, stability, stamina, and muscle definition, whilst reducing stress and increasing mental awareness. Restoring physical health and pursuing a path of spiritual development became Harold Coggins’ way of life having enabled him successfully to heal his own body of various defects which resulted from severe physical trauma in his childhood.
