Movement for Modern Life: The problem with yoga is that physically getting yourself to class
is a battle in itslelf; by the time you finally pitch up (late), you’re
a sweaty, frazzled mess, crammed in the corner, while everyone glares at
you for disrupting their zen. But no more. Because this is yoga that
fits around you. Log onto the website, choose your style (restorative,
postnatal, strengthening), the duration, (20-minutes or an hour-long
stint) and your instructor (some of the world’s best - are on it) Then,
in your own time, in your own house/hotel room/garden, roll out your mat
and get sun saluting. Our verdict: Metal enlightenment awaits. (Tatler)
Kat Farrants… decided to quit her day job and create a platform that
allows anyone, anywhere, at any time, to do yoga with some of Britain’s
best teachers. What sets it apart is the list of nurturing classes (Good
morning, Sleep Well, Yoga for Athletes and Stress/Anxiety)…” Sunday
Times Style Kat Farrants, a lawyer, launched her company when she could
no longer fit travelling to yoga classes into her schedule. A monthly
subscription accesses classes, including routines dedicated to remedy
concerns such as anxiety and sleep problems It’s all easy to follow,
even in Downward Dog. (The Telegraph on Sunday, Stella Magazine)
Practicing Yoga can help you cope when life is tough. But this may be
when you have no time or energy to go to a class or practise at home.
That was a colleague’s dilemma when her mother died suddenly. Then
Victoria discovered Movement for Modern Life, which is essentially an
online yoga studio offering quality classes of varying lengths and
styles with top teachers that she could do at home. It’s a great travel
companion and there is a dedicated section for beginners. (Daily Mail’s
I discovered this online yoga
site last year and have been hooked ever since... with Movement for
Modern Life I was able to take a class a day and it's truly
transforming the way I look and feel. (Suzy Greaves, Editor,
I'm into the 2nd week of my
free trial and I absolutely love it. I'm new to yoga and I love the
fact that I can choose what type of class, what length of class,
what intensity etc at anytime that suits me.
I actually feel like I am in
my own personal yoga class. I keep a mat at work so I can do a class
in my office which reduces the time spent sitting! Will definitely
take up membership in a weeks time. Thank you Kat Farrants, you've
done me a great service .... I feel the benefits already. (Gail)
I really love this site - the
manifesto and the variety and quality of videos, I'm pregnant with
my second child and it is the best way to keep up with practice and
vary according to energy levels. Great! (Rebecca)
I thought I'd share how much
I'm loving my subscription - I wish I had more hours in the day as I
love being able to choose exactly the class that's right for how I'm
feeling and how much time I have!
Thank you - it's a wonderful
idea for people like me who can't get to all top teachers in the
studios of the capital! And it's extending my practice and has taken
me out of my yoga comfort zone, which is great :-) (Joanne)
Your site has made a massive
difference to my practice and therefore my life...The quality of
teachers is really good and I have learnt a lot more than from the
dvds I have about the poses and alignment and my flexibility and
strength have really improved...
Your website really has been
the antidote for me to modern life and all its deranged deadlines
and priorities. And I try and take what I learn into my work because
I think somehow its about being kind to yourself which leads into
kindness to other people. (Viki)
I travel all the time and I am
absolutely loving the fact that I can take my favourite teachers
with me and practice wherever I go. (Dana)
I absolutely love your site;
it’s very economical and incredibly convenient. It has made me
practise much more regularly and organised, so keep up the good
I've been a lifelong dabbler
in yoga and part of the reason that this format works for me is that
I know enough about how a pose should align that I can get on with
things.... and doing it without feeling self-conscious in front of
others is really a relief, and also means I'm more likely to
continue to practice rather than feel ashamed of my not perfectly
toned vegan yoga body. (Sarah)
You can only do the same three
DVDs so many times before it ceases to be beneficial or challenging
and that is when it is easy to give up. In the time that I've
been... using the MFML videos I have been able to tailor to what I
am physically feeling up for. For example, I was able to do some
gentle things while on my cycle and then add rigour after I
It's a great service and I
will definitely be returning. (Jane)
I do really like the site -
the classes are really high quality...the variety of classes and
levels available keeps things really fresh and interesting. There's
a couple of very good yoga studios around my flat but .. I'm kind of
intimidated to go to the classes anyway... (Emma)
Movement for Modern Life is
good for me because I can embarrass myself in the privacy of my own
home and really tailor my routine to what I have time for or focus
on a particular area I feel needs work. The hip openers have been
really useful after a bunch of desk sitting and hunching over
I am finding the videos
absolutely amazing - excellent quality/quantity. Classes near me
weren't geared for beginners other than as 'mixed ability' & with
working I couldn't get to them regularly.
These are ideal as I can
access beginners level & build up (& really understand what I am
doing & why & concentrate on getting the breathing right with the
moves & build up at my own pace). So fantastic thank you, wonderful
to fit in with my routine & the answer to a prayer! (Liz)
Thank you so much for this
site! I'm loving being able to choose my practice and do it in my
own time. I also find that my attitude towards my practice is better
when there's no one around to compare myself with. (Viv)
