My personal perspective on Yoga
Yoga has grown to be a tree with many tall branches. These days there are so many different styles of Yoga out there… So many, that one can easily get confused.
What is more important than what branch of Yoga is practiced, is to be able to:
Allocate time for oneself
Stay on the path
Eventually, any path taken, if taken seriously, will probably lead to a similar result.
There is no right way to exercise, there is RIGHT for the individual that is practicing. There is no sacred counting, duration, force to be used, there is RIGHT for the individual that is practicing. Every exercise is a base for a change, to suit individually.
Yoga is mainly about: Balance – Flexibility – Strength – Persistence. Physical and mental
The routines that I practice are based mainly on Hatha Yoga. Through the years I have adopted practices from other exercising styles. Some Hatha Yoga exercises I have been doing since my childhood, others were added through the years.
Since I have great interest in Breathing, I like to see the Yoga that I practice as breathing exercises combined with postures and movement (not the other way around). One can get so much more out of Yoga exercises, when breathing is harmonized with the postures and the movements made while exercising.
