"Oh, you're a yoga teacher. What kind of yoga do you teach?"
I get asked that a lot.
My yoga doesn't really have a name, nor is it any one thing -- it's hard to put into words something that is more than just physical.
To give the short answer I usually say that I teach an "alignment based flow".
But if they really wanted to sit and chat for a while, I'd tell them more:
At 90 Monkeys, our school, we teach a yoga that embraces three values:
• Longevity & Alignment
• Integrity in Community
• Life Affirming Philosophy
Our yoga focuses on good form to support longevity and sustainability in the body over time. Through intelligent alignment principles, sound biomechanics, and a workable understanding of anatomy, it offers a deep, efficacious practice to enhance the physical aspects of embodiment.
We value the power of community - one that is inclusive, honest, warm, and kind. We cherish collective support and seek to live with accountability for our energy and actions. We strive to be responsible for the earth and it's inhabitants and as such, value coming together in person (not just online!).
We start all endeavors saying yes to life -- receiving what the world presents us. We wish for humanity to love their life and appreciate the miracle of being alive. We enjoy having fun, value lineage, and believe living a conscious and skillful life is the secret to deep fulfillment.
This January we will be immersing into the worlds of this yoga path in our first ever - weekend format - 200 Hour Teacher Training in Boulder, CO. Learn more and join us!
