I taught Hatha (physical) yoga the way my teacher taught me for twenty years.
The emphasis was on the physical asana (postures) though I also practised all sorts of breathing techniques, visualisations, and meditations.
Despite these practices I still often suffered from a sore lower back and tightness in my shoulders and legs.
For the last six years I have let go of teaching 'hard' yoga postures as I felt, not only that they were not supporting me or my class participants, but I could feel how much the consciousness of yoga has changed since the times of the great yoga sage Patanjali.
I realised I had an air of superiority – "I teach yoga". As I was also a qualified fitness instructor it was easy for me to change the way I taught yoga as I could gradually introduce more general exercises to my classes.
Although my classes do still have some traditional yoga poses such as the bridge, I have adapted them so they feel more honouring of the body. And...guess what? I am actually stronger and more flexible than I was before making these changes!
My class participants tell me they have observed similar changes in themselves. I seldom have lower back issues now either.
"I feel so fortunate to have found Anne’s class. As a busy Mum of two young children I find it hard to carve out time for myself. Anne’s class (gentle yoga and exercise with weights) is my time once a week to focus on me feeling centred, balanced and relaxed. I look forward to the weekly class and always come away from her sessions feeling at peace, with more focus and gratitude. Anne is always so positive towards everyone and very accommodating of all fitness levels, because of this she has gathered a lovely caring and encouraging community of men and women in her classes."
