The first time I trained to teach yoga there was an ongoing “DIFFERENCE OF OPINION” between the two course leaders.
They each followed different philosophies of yoga and insisted on different ways of aligning yoga, which was deeply confusing as a student.
There was a lot of talk of CORRECT ALIGNMENT. But what that actually meant depended on who you talked to…
I called it ALIGNMENT SCHIZOPHRENIA, when one yoga teacher would insist I do the opposite of what I’d been told in the previous class.
Eventually, I realised there are many paths up the mountain.
These days I’m less interested in alignment and more interested in co-creating yoga practices that don’t cause short term or long-term injury.
Ultimately: you do the yoga your way, the way that works best for your body.
