Teachers > Maverick Lim
Maverick encourages a yoga of contemplative exploration. Though physical in part, his practice is ultimately one of the mind and heart. It is a way of questioning. It never fixates. And it moves towards stillness. It is essentially a yoga of embodied self-reflection.
For Maverick, poses are not answers. They are questions, and so they are approached as questions would be: with method, contemplation, and an open mind. Each pose is explored simply and fully. Every movement in a class is developed practically and with attention to detail. Classes are designed with no prerequisites or levels – each class has been crafted simply as an experience.
Through such classes, Maverick hopes to demonstrate and explore a yoga of life’s vicissitudes. His focus is simple, practical and inquisitive. It points towards one essential question: What does well-being feel like?
Maverick’s technique is grounded in bodyworks, martial arts, practical anatomy, non-sectarian meditation, and Somatics. It is an eclectic approach crafted precisely to fit that most eclectic of questions. His intention is to help students establish clear objectives in practice and to inspire them to move closer towards physical and mental well-being.
For this purpose, he offers one quintessential piece of advice:
“Practise what you enjoy and enjoy your practice; this, and purely this, is yoga.”
