My main way of teaching yoga is through classes, audio courses, videos, meditations, and workshops. Any of these options will always combine science and yoga in order to immediately bridge understanding and implementation

My view on Yoga
Yoga is, above all, a practice of the mind. When I first started yoga, I thought it a physical practice, which is partly true, depending on how you look at it. Yoga did develop into a physical practice, with the sharpest increase in physical postures in the last century, but this is not how it once originated, and physical fitness still isn't the main goal.
I want to use scientific research to better understand and communicate the benefits of a practice that originated 2500 years ago in an era of urbanisation of the Indian world. Yoga was an attempt to escape increased hierarchy, class systems, pollution, overstimulation, economic growth, and religious dogma at that time. Yogi's longed to find meaning in life by reconnecting their minds and bodies, and reconnecting with nature.
I think this longing to escape the side effects of economic growth is a timely topic, and that there is something special yoga brings to us that goes far beyond athletics and relaxation. Curious what that is? Read more about my view on yoga below!
