If you’ve been coming to our classes for a long time, you know our style of yoga is a different than all the other yoga you have experienced before! Or perhaps this is your first time here, and you’re trying to figure out what this new style of yoga is.
So, how do we describe it?
Yoga Better was born of a simple inquiry:
When we do yoga and feel amazing, what is really happening?
The inherited tradition would explain it in terms of cosmic energy and the spirit, all wrapped in a mystical burrito.
What if we attempted to explain yoga’s beautiful phenomena using only what we can test?
Using only anatomy, mechanics, with little sojourns into psychology and cognition, we’ve arrived at a style unlike anything you’ve tried before.
Clear language, compassionate and uncommonly knowledgeable teachers, and an emphasis on growth while having fun:
Ready to try it out for yourself?
I come back to the word ‘better’ more and more as the years go by.
Why do I practice? To get better.
How do I know if I’m good at life (yoga, handstanding, relationships, speaking, writing)? I’m better than I was last year.
What’s my goal for my body? To be better than I was last year.
The more I move away from the simplification of good at/bad at a given discipline, the better I find everything works. I’m not committed to anything short of you getting better at every discipline we touch on in this style.
Measurably better. Clearly better. Better at practicing. Better at jokes. Better at communication.
I don’t teach a ‘better yoga’. I teach you to be better at yoga.
And with some permissiveness verbally, I want you to yoga better.
