Vidya Venkateswaran

The 5F approach has changed my personal yoga practice. In my classes I insert mini snacks during practice allowing the participants to engage in 5F and experientially feel the benefit. I’m looking forward to introducing a stand-alone 5F class.

Samantha Mills

Taplow, UK

I use the 5F in my practice to create more fluidity in my movements and to act as an antidote to the linear pathways we live in. The 5F approach brings spirality into my practice to help me identify areas that are tight from this linear way of living and give me the tools to unwind these areas so that I feel more fluid and at ease in my body.

Carol Langowski

Curitiba, Brazil

5F changed my yoga practice and my classes. The connection with spiral fascial movements prepares us for a freer and more enjoyable asana practice. It is a turning point. And in my Yoga Anatomy classes, I can bring a more current and integrated approach.

Sophie Noonan

Bilbao, Basque Country

Sophie weaves in her 5f specialist training into her yoga classes, along with her anatomy teaching on teacher trainings. As a person fascinated in and by the body and all that lies under the skin, the chirality and spiral motion is an integral part of connecting with the individual development and movement of each person she works with.

Michelle Haines

Sarasota, Florida 

Five Filaments has validated my experience in that "our tissue condition changes with maturity, and the natural constraints of spirality remain the same. My practice and class facilitation encourages respect for your body's inner logos and increasing one's "sukha" with a sense of wonderment.

With an interest in Fascia and somatics, integrating the 5F framework into my Yoga teaching has been transformative. Delving into spiral-based movement has revolutionised my personal practice, inspiring a tailored approach to every session. With 5F as my guide, I ensure each offering is practical, accessible, and uniquely tailored to individual needs.
