The infusion of science through the studies of kinesiology, neurology, biomechanics, etc. has led us to think critically about a few ways we have all traditionally practiced the Yoga Asana. All movement is good movement, inquiry thrives, dogma diminishes, and really anything can be a Yoga Asana as long as you’re mindful of the movement you are performing. We can overcome ignorance by questioning traditional ideas, and then either re-imagining them or leaving them behind. I have a functional approach to yoga rather than an aesthetic approach. Through ‘yoga’ I encourage critical thinking, soften certainty, engage the gluteus maximus, develop strength and prevent injury. We will ignite and strengthen the Life force from within as we mindfully engage in diaphragmatic breathing, adapt functional biomechanics (multi-planar, multi-joint movements) and place demand on the body’s core musculature (spine and the hip flexors which is the engine of our body.) All you have to do is show up and let the practice do the rest. You will leave the session energized & coherent yet relaxed.
I look forward to seeing you all on the mat, the infinity pool, or on the hammock!
