Many people have a perception that yoga is "spiritual" and therefore they don't like it. And on one hand yes it is, but only if that's the way YOU choose it to be for you.
Yoga is what you make of it and the emphasis is on the breathe and the movement or pose, known in Yoga as asanas. Different breathing techniques can be used and it's becoming a hot topic nowadays, about how imporant proper breathing is for the body.
Yoga is ideal for those who want to improve their strength, their flexibility, their balance, reduce stress and anxiety and find a way for them to feel less overwhelmed with everything else and it is ideal for people who want to learn how to relax their minds.
The spiritual side of Yoga isn't just as black and white, as some people think and the history of it's origin is very interesting. To some cultures yoga is a way of life, but here in the Western world many people choose to do it as a form of exericse.
I teach Yoga in a very functional manner. My aim is not to get your leg over your head. Our bodies are all different and function differently so you'll receive benefits specific to you because the poses are modified and adjusted for each person to suit THEIR bodies. My practice is all about safety first and effectiveness. There's no point doing something if it's not helping you in one way or the other.
