There is a reason Yoga is one of the oldest forms of exercise that is still practiced today. At over 5000 years old this type of physical and mental workout has the ability to permeate the physical body right down to a cellular level, hence its ability to heal, and also to transcend its way past the logics of the mind, to the human spirit.
This type of ‘connection’, ‘buzz’, ‘Yoga glow’, whatever you like to call it, can literally bring a sense of magic and wonder to a persons life as they start to encompass their own ability to create strength physically and mentally aswell as increasing their awareness and mindfulness of their senses and ability to tap into their ‘feelings’ or ‘consciousness’ – (matters governed by the heart) over and above logic and systems – (matters governed by the brain and sadly more and more – technology).
This is how many can literally experience life epiphanies, as through opening up the body, we free up space in the mind. When we free up space in the mind we are able to see things differently, more clearly. We are able to shift our perspective and the lense we use to observe the world around us aswell as the world within us.
Yoga Class Newcastle
At Sculpt and Flow Fitness, we believe that the shapes we make in a Yoga class are a ‘way in’, a ‘tool’ as such to help you dive into whatever you feel comfortable to. We can work purely physically, for example on ‘stretching the hips’ and be guided around that goal purely through looking at our physicality. By the same token, we may choose to relate ‘releasing the hips’ to ‘letting go’ of a mental or emotional event that is getting in our way or holding us back – (Yoga theory suggests that the hips are the body’s emotional storage centres). Approaching physical work like this can have a very powerful impact on our results, as the body and mind are so closely related.
We believe in the authenticity and noncompetitive nature of Yoga which is why our classes are open to everyone and are free from levels of ‘skill’ or ‘experience’. Our yoga classes incorporate the flow of Power Yoga with the invitation to explore on a mental level (Forrest Inspired Yoga) to intuitively provide the best possible experience for our clients on any given day.

The Sculpt and Flow Crew are a pleasure to work with. Over the time I’ve been with them I’ve seen changes in my body that make a 68 year old man very hopeful he’ll stay upright for some time to come. Chris is a warm, generous and very knowledgeable professional who has had a positive impact on me. He is both kind and firm. I’ve just started with Bex, and she strikes me, already, as the sort of person who has my best interest at heart. Both have a mastery of their respective professions that is a joy to behold. I couldn’t recommend this crew more highly!!

Because of Chris I’m fitter at 48 than I was at 28! He’s had to constantly modify training (because of injuries) and session timings (because of work), but he has never given up on me and has kept encouraging me to stay fit. He’s very engaged conversationally, which makes it partly a good therapy session! And he knows more about wine than I do! :) A good all round package I reckon :)

After four years training with Chris Massey am still amazed with my progress. Having started with vague aims to improve health and strength, training one day a week as well as daily Pilates, I now train four days a week and do not recognize my previous self. With Chris you get total involvement, commitment and a different perspective of your capabilities. Chris is 100% on your team and puts up with moans, groans and complaints with good humour and encouragement. His commitment and enthusiasm is infectious. It is one of the best things I have ever done. Thanks Chris

I have been training with Chris for about 8 years and since then have had 2 kids. I continued to train with Chris both while pregnant and post pregnancy when I felt ready to get back into strength exercises. Chris is encouraging and motivating but also patient and understanding with where my body is at (especially with abdominal separation from my pregnancies). I’m always comfortable telling Chris if I feel my body can’t handle an exercise and he adapts the session to suit my strength level. I definitely would not have the core strength and be at the level of fitness I am now without him!Chris is very friendly and a lovely person to be around so makes the training sessions more enjoyable. I always leave the PT sessions feeling uplifted and motivated. He has great advice not only in fitness but in nutrition as well. I’ve always felt that Chris genuinely cares about his client’s general health and wellbeing. I highly recommend you see Chris to guide you on your health and fitness goals!

Fitness through guided strength and stamina bodywork is a terrific antidote to my desk-bound career in middle age. I’ve been training with Sculpt & Flow’s Chris Massey for two years. Chris’s peerless experience in working with people of all ages, and his sunny enthusiasm for the benefits of PT, make sessions fun!! I train because I love my desk job and don’t want my health ruined by long hours at my computer. Since starting PT I’ve developed better patterns of sustained concentration and avoided weight gain. Although training takes me out of my comfort zone, Chris’s patience and good humour mean that I keep showing up to train. My partner trains with Chris too. 100% recommend Sculpt & Flow!!

Sculpt and Flow offer a complete fitness and well-being program. Chris is a fantastic personal trainer!!! He will support you to reach your fitness goals while tailoring an individual program - regardless of your fitness level, injury or age. I never thought I’d look forward to early morning exercise.... however it is the BEST way to start the day!

I've been training with Chris from Sculpt and flow fitness for a few years now, and more recently my teenage daughter has joined me. The sessions are hard but extraordinarily rewarding! I've enjoyed the results of increased energy, strength and stamina, all delivered in a friendly and supportive way. Having hit 50, I plan on stepping up my efforts to try and keep up with my daughter! We love out weekly sessions with Chris. It's a great way to start the day and I'd highly recommend Sculpt and Flow to everyone!
