Sivananda... Ashtanga...Iyengar..Power yoga .. It does not matter at all which type of Yoga you are doing!! What ever you are doing learn it properly! Tune the body..If the body is tuned , you can go to any class and feel comfortable.
Each type of Yoga has it's benefit. And each has it's weakness!! Dont ever think that your type is better!! It never is!! Dont get obsessed with the type of yoga you are learning... have an open mind... remember there is only one yoga... yoga is union with the cosmos...... Everything is tool for that goal.
have seen so many ashtanga students.... strong..but lacking flexcibility and
balance!! So many iyengar students ..aligned...but lacking dynamic postures! Iyengar has Discipline, Sivananda has spiritual, ashtanga has dynamism. Take all, blend it together. That is my Yoga.
It has discipline, It has dynamism, it is spiritual..and very very stretched..very intense..and balanced..pure raw yoga.. The way it is taught in India!!!!
My name is Mano. I am a Sivananda trained yoga teacher. I teach in South London. Based in Wimbledon I did my Yoga teacher training in India in 1997. I did my advanced teacher training in 2000 in India. I conduct classes for beginners, 1intermediate ,and advanced students. Almost all my yoga classes are in Wimbledon.Normally I guide my students from beginners to intermediate then advanced. In All my classes the students started as beginners and now intermediate or advanced. I am an old type of yoga teacher in the tradition of indian teachers.
I have no time or respect for teachers who dont practice regularly..an meat and fish eating, wine drinking, in can only happens in the west, where teachers have no spirituality, or discipline or non vegetarians... and they teach yoga??
Some teachers in the west think that saying "namasthe", or saying some sanskrit words make them cool , or make them Indian, or make them better teacher.. only discipline & practice will make them better teacher........
" COME TO MY CLASS ONLY IF YOU WANT CHALLANGE... WORK HARDER... STRETCH MORE THAN YOU EVER DONE...LEARN NEW POSTURES... NEW TECHNIQUES... TONE YOUR BODY...YOU NEED DISCIPLINE !!.......REMEMBER IT IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE ...CLUB OR GYM YOGA..."Yoga is a way of life. It is not something you do once a week! Try to make little bit of asanas little bit of breathing technique and some meditation and relaxation daily.
