What's your advice on yoga?

Feel free to send me a question that isn't listed below

  • I want to do yoga but I don’t know where to start?

    I personally love to practice in a group with a teacher leading the class. There are lots of different types of yoga classes you can take. See what your local studio offers and try a class that appeals to you. If you like it softer, try a yin class or beginner’s yoga class. If you like it a bit more challenging, try a vinyasa or power yoga class. In the beginning, don't worry about doing it right. Take a spot in the back and follow along. Yoga is about getting out of your head, not constantly worrying about if you're doing it right. After a while you'll start to learn the language, etiquette, and culture of yoga. If you don't have a studio near you or aren't ready for the group setting, I have online plans for beginners that are the perfect way to establish your own personal practice from the ground up. I will guide you step by step through each posture and movement in order to build confidence and ensure proper form and technique. You can check it out here.

  • What kind of yoga do you practice?

    I practice mostly Vinyasa, Power Yoga and Yin. There are so many styles of Hatha Yoga. I often go to different yoga classes in different styles like Jivamukti or Ashtanga to switch things up. I don’t believe there is one style better than another, they all have something beautiful to offer.

  • How long have you been practicing yoga?

    My first experience with yoga was in 2001 when I was doing martial arts (Hap Do Sool) and there was one day a week where we did yoga. After I stopped practicing martial arts in 2004, I stopped doing yoga until I rediscovered it in 2010. This is when my real yoga practice began and when I started to discover all the other aspects of yoga beyond the asana.

  • How much do you practice yoga?

    The first few years, I would practice up to 3 hours a day. Now my practice is a little bit mellower, with a bigger focus on pranayama and meditation. I have a self-practice of about 30 minutes to 2 hours a day and I take group classes about 3 times a week.
