Core AntiFragile Practice – Training
Antifragility Yoga is a common-sense approach to getting stronger, fitter, more flexible, more resilient and inherently happier, healthier, more content, less stressed, (and hopefully) wiser and more fulfilled, a push to learn, to grow, to get better, to improve yourself and the world around you. All of this is ‘anti-fragile’.
- Doing nothing leads to ‘fragile’, weakening, tightening, less healthy, less mobile, less empowered, more stressed, loss of bone density…
- ‘Older’ does not equal ‘fragile’. Doing nothing leads to ‘fragile’. Anyone of any age can head towards anti-fragile, as much as is right for them. It is a decision. What condition do you want to be in, going forward, year by year – especially as you age? Decision – action – consequence.
- ‘Doing techniques’ is not the same thing as ‘practice’.
- Lockdown enables us to re-look at, re-invigorate and recommit to our practice – What am I looking to achieve? What techniques will led me towards achieving it? What kind of practice do I want to develop? “What I want to do” becomes secondary.
- Progress does not lie in big dramatic stuff. Nor in dramatic bursts of activity, followed by nothing. Progress lies in regular practice, in simple, small, sustainable steps – in having an aim and keep working towards it. I think it lies in the small and the humble, in developing a sustainable practice. Don’t underestimate the little things.
- Core Building Practice – aimed at building strength, mobility and resilience. This involves yoga asana and kettlebell. See full Core Building Practice with kettlebell and without kettlebell.
- Eight Brocades – a great integration and releasing practice (with or without kettlebell).
- A pranayama breathing practice
- The Five Tibetans
It is useful to see what you can do, and to see how much you have progressed, to see what you are capable of. We have some basic ‘guiding numbers’:
- Number of Core Building Practice sequences done per week (at least 1)
- Number of Five Tibetans you can do (max 21)
- Basic pranayama count (used in the breathing patterns) that you can comfortably and sustainably do (max 8)
- Everyday meditation time that you are doing (no max)

Personally, I think deciding on and committing to a practice is one of the most meaningful things we can do in life. Practice – this is my journey.
