THERE IS ONLY ONE PATH UP THE MOUNTAIN (so not true)

🏔️

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.
